It was back to the twin holding midfielder formation again for United and same old result. Dropped points. Fred was poor in this one unable to assert himself in midfield. The Brazilian easily pushed off the ball by the impressive Gray as the Toffees launched a counterattack so efficient even United would have been proud of.
Much improved performance by United though as Ole rung changes in attack with Cavani and Martial starting in place of Ronaldo and Sancho. Fernandes was as usual at the creative heartbeat, he impressively teed up Martial for the goal. United never really looked like they were in control of this one even when they were ahead. So with a daunting fixture list after the international break coming up, what can the United manager do to change the run of poor results especially at Old Trafford? Start by demanding more of Sancho and Pogba, the two players capable of controling the game. Sancho showed glimpses ehen he came on, Pogba gave the ball away too many times. Time to give Donny Van Der Beek a run instead of Fred. Can’t find much fault with Everton performance with Allan impressive along with Gray and Townsend(cheeky góal celebration 🙌).
