Everton 0-2 Manchester United: Four Things We Learned

Share

Having shaken off the cobwebs with a 6-2 home win against bitter rivals Leeds United last weekend, United will bank on their 100 per cent away record when they travel to Leicester, who are a point above Solskjaer's team but have played a game more.

Brendan Rodgers's side had a slight wobble between November 22 and December 3 as they lost three of their four matches in all competitions, but the former English champions have won four of their last five.

A late Axel Tuanzebe own goal prevented Manchester United moving up to second in the Premier League after a 2-2 draw at Leicester, as Aston Villa moved into the top six with victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

It was an excellent performance and we should have been out of sight, we had three or four great chances.

"We are going to try to get to the semi-finals in a good state, but there are many league games before then".

"We are expected to win trophies". When Edison Cavani had pushed Mina, the scoreline read 0-0. It's always the results that matter and change the culture around the club (and Pogba's mind about staying at Old Trafford).

The visitors dominated the early exchanges and put Everton under pressure with a succession of chances that were wasted, Cavani coming close twice.

Saints went close in the first half when James Ward-Prowse's 25-yard free-kick crashed against the crossbar, with the rebound spinning away from Che Adams as he tried to knock the ball in. Edinson Cavani was seen grabbing Yerry Mina's throat and threw him on the ground.

Solskjaer's United are a frustrating team that occasionally (around once a season) turn into clutch world-beaters for a couple of months, enough to save a season but not enough to win a title. Gunnar was further asked if Cavani should have been sent back to which he said, "No they are two South Americans that have had battles before, not long ago".

A tussle between Tyrone Mings and Wilfried Zaha resulted in a yellow card for both and moments later when Mings blocked off Zaha, the England global was dismissed in first-half stoppage time.

Harvey Barnes's blistering strike levelled for Leicester before half-time and United were undone by Jamie Vardy's movement in the box late on as the veteran striker latched onto Ayoze Perez's cross and his shot deflected in off the unfortunate Tuanzebe.
