Manchester United suffer heavy defeat to Everton

Everton produced a swift counter attacking performance to emphatically defeat Manchester United 3-0

 

Manchester United continued their awful form at Goodisson Park as they fell to a 3-0 defeat to Everton in a Sunday, April 26 English Premier League game.

The corresponding fixture last season ended in a 2-0 nil defeat for the Reds and former coach David Moyes was fired afterwards.

While we are not expecting the same for Louis van Gaal, the defeat however shows that the Dutch tactician has a lot to do to make Manchester United genuine title contenders next season.

Manchester United enjoyed possession in the opening minutes before Everton opened scoring in the fifth minute with a swift counter attack.

McCarthy finished off the move with as he break through and score from just six yards.

Manchester United tried to level but missed a slew of chances before the home side added a second in the 35th minute.

John Stones reacted first to a Leighton Baines' corner to head his first Everton goal high in to the net.

At the beginning of the second half, Manchester United enjoyed more possession but it was Everton who found the net again to gain an emphatic 3-0 victory over the Redds.

Romelu Lukaku, broke through the middle and fed Kevin Mirallas who United defence thought was upside.

He was not and the Belgian beat David de Gea with his right instep..
