Manchester United 3-1 Everton – FA Cup

Manchester United 3-1 Everton – FA Cup

For Erik ten Hag, this continues to feel like the start of something special at Manchester United. For poor Frank Lampard, on the other hand, was this the end for him at Everton?

In fairness to Lampard, this is not a group of players who have downed tools. They fought for their club and their manager at Old Trafford on Friday night. Ben Godfrey led the defensive effort and Demarai Gray was outstanding in attack.

Everton recovered from conceding Antony’s early goal to level through Conor Coady who was then unfortunate to score an own-goal early in the second half. They had Alex Iwobi carried off and what would have been a late equaliser by substitute Dominic Calvert-Lewin ruled out for a tight offside.

Manchester United fans have voted for the Red Devils’ man of the match in the 3-1 FA Cup third round win over Everton on the club’s official website.

United made a flying start when Antony opened the scoring after a cross from Marcus Rashford, getting the ideal start after just four minutes.

Everton pulled themselves back level through Conor Coady after a poor mistake by David de Gea, but the England defender scored an own goal early in the second half.

Rashford then made the game safe in stoppage time, making it two assists and a goal on the night for the red-hot forward.

Manchester United man of the match against Everton

Manchester United fans voted x as their man of the match in the win against Everton which booked a spot in round four.

Here is how the vote broke down…

Marcus Rashford – 82%
Casemiro – 5%
Bruno Fernandes – 3%

Rashford has scored in every single United game since the World Cup, and admitted after the game he is in the best scoring form of his United career.

That is making a difference to United and adding an edge to their performance which is getting results, even though there is more room for ruthlessness in the overall team performances.

Next up is Charlton on Tuesday night in the EFL Cup, where United can book their place in the semi-finals if they replicate this level of performance.
