Fernandes fires Manchester United to victory against Everton2 min read
Manchester United arrested a run of back-to-back defeats by coming from a goal behind to claim a creditable 3-1 Premier League win over Everton at Goodison Park.
It was Everton who made the brighter start to the game and were duly rewarded when a long ball from Pickford fell kindly to Bernard off Victor Lindelof’s head. The Brazilian had a dig and drove it past De Gea at the keeper’s near post.
But United responded well, with Rashford stabbing one wide before Luke Shaw picked out Fernandes, who headed past Pickford expertly.
the second half, with Maguire denied a penalty after being cleaned out by Pickford, before the England defender was perhaps lucky not to give away a spot kick himself for a lunge on Digne, who had previously been flagged offside.
Everton dominated possession throughout the second half but failed to create any real chances, and Rashford could have had the visitors even further ahead after beating the offside trap, only to find Pickford’s legs.
Throughout the second half, Everton were unable to trouble David de Gea and the United defence did enough to repel them, with Edinson Cavani netting a late goal on the break to end the contest.
