Manchester United return back to winning ways as we beat Everton 3-1 on Saturday to ease the pressure on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Another defeat was on the horizon when Everton opened the scoring through Bernard. However, a brace from Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani’s first United goal helped to secure the win for us.
In a week that has seen manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s job come under threat as it was reported the club had made contact with both former Spurs Boss Mauricio Pochettino and RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann, the teamed responded in brilliant fashion to silence the naysayers.
Both sides had their chances in the opening 20 minutes but it was Bernard who broke the deadlock on 19 minutes. The Brazilian skipped past United full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka before directing a right-footed shot into the corner of David De Gea’s net.
However, their lead only lasted six minutes as Fernandes scored from Luke Shaw’s cross. Then, the Portuguese also found the net again on 32 minutes when his cross into the box rebounded off the post and into the goal.
A lightning counterattack on the 95 minutes saw Fernandes launched a well-weighted pass onto Cavani’s path who picked his spot and put the ball past Pickford for his first United goal.
