Even though Manchester United‘s play was at times careless, Erik ten Hag’s team won easily because to Everton’s carelessness in front of goal. With two games remaining, they are now just three points behind fifth-place Tottenham.

Although Sean Dyche’s team had the most shots of any away team at Old Trafford in the season—23 against Manchester United‘s 15—they were once again unable to score goals, as their winless streak in the Premier League extended to 11 games, matching a club record set in 1994.
Although a loss gives their relegation opponents an opportunity to close the gap, the Toffees are still in 16th place, five points above the drop zone.

How Man Utd dealt with prodigal Everton

The injured team’s performance was characterized by carelessness as they frequently gave Everton possession in their own half, yet they went into halftime up by two goals.
Ben Godfrey, Amadou Onana, and Dwight McNeil were a few of the visitors who turned down opportunities, and the dangerous Garnacho punished them on the other end.

After he ducked under James Tarkowski and clearly fouled the Everton center back, Fernandes won the first penalty, which he scored with his first Premier League goal since November. Fernandes placed the kick beyond Jordan Pickford.

Then it was Godfrey who brought Garnacho down in the box clumsily a second time. Fernandes’ audacious choice to hand Rashford the spot-kick paid off, as the 26-year-old misdirected Pickford after a clumsy run-up. Between the two penalties, Pickford produced an incredible stop from a Fernandes free kick, as Manchester United grew increasingly dangerous as the half progressed.

After the break, the hosts had more chances, primarily on the counterattack. Victor Lindelof saw a close-range shot denied after a corner, and Garnacho was not quite able to put home a low cross by Fernandes from one of numerous chances.

While all was going on, Everton was still having trouble finding space in the Manchester United half. Abdoulaye Doucoure’s attempt at a near-post shot was saved by Andre Onana, and Dominic Calvert-Lewin was unable to convert a cross-shot from fellow substitute Lewis Dobbin.

As Everton continued to pepper the United goal, Calvert-Lewin also headed a free header straight at Onana from a corner, but their bluntness meant that as the second half meandered towards its end, there was no real sense of concern for the hosts.

After consecutive Premier League losses to Fulham and Manchester City, the victory was greatly needed and improves Manchester United’s chances of qualifying for Europe. Meanwhile, the situation appears increasingly dire for Everton, who are without a win and could find themselves in deeper difficulties.

Man of the Match- Alejandro Garnacho

With his two penalty kick victories, the Argentine winger significantly improved the game. His first came after deft footwork against Tarkowski, and his second came after a graceful run into the box.
His runs repeatedly got him behind Everton’s defense, and he continued to pose a threat on the break throughout the second half. His only annoyance was that he was unable to register a goal. Everton was unable to contain him.
