How Everton could have beaten Manchester United

How Everton could have beaten Manchester United

Koeman’s tactics kept his team in it Sunday, but lacked a key component Before I dig into my admittedly controversial thesis (that Everton could have actually beaten Manchester United), let’s get an important point out of the way. The Toffees did not play poorly on Sunday. Period. I know the final score was 4-0, and that’s obviously very disheartening. But, United’s final three goals came with Everton chasing the game in a 5-2-3 with Gylfi Sigurdsson and Morgan Schneiderlin as the holding midfielders. United still needed Ashley Williams to practically hand them a goal in order to...

Morgan Schneiderlin: Fight for the Shirt

French midfielder sees improvements on the pitch, bemoans mistakes Manchester United’s 4-0 win against visiting Everton on Sunday drew a range of reactions from fans and pundits. Some viewers saw a marked improvement from Thursday’s disastrous visit to Atalanta, and an Everton side that stood to-to-toe with the Red Devils until capitulating to let in a few late goals as the Toffees pressed for an equalizer. The effort and organization were a big step forward for some, and gave them optimism as Everton emerge from their brutal opening stanza of matches. For others, however, the 4-0...

(Video) Cheeky Man United ace Romelu Lukaku uses Richard Keys defence when quizzed about upsetting Everton fans

Romelu Lukaku used the famous Richard Keys defence to beat off criticism after antagonising Everton fans during Manchester United’s 4-0 win on Sunday. The former Toffees frontman was booed throughout the match by away fans at Old Trafford and he got revenge in the 83rd minute when he assisted Henrikh Mkhitaryan to make it 2-0. After Mkhitaryan’s […] The post (Video) Cheeky Man United ace Romelu Lukaku uses Richard Keys defence when quizzed about upsetting Everton fans appeared first on CaughtOffside.

Five Thoughts from Manchester United’s win over Everton

Five Thoughts from Manchester United’s win over Everton

Pogba was still missed. The goals are being spread around. Matić continues to impress. Here are some thoughts on Manchester United’s 4-0 win over Everton. Not My Pogba Replacement I recently wrote an article about how Marouane Fellaini has turned into a game changer at United, and I think he has, but he’s not a starter. On top of that, he is no replacement for the injured Paul Pogba. Pogba is a threat in the midfield that Fellaini will never be and it was noticed today. When United got into the final third, the usual threats we are used to seeing and loving were stifled because of...

Manchester United 4 Everton 0: Toffees prolong the inevitable, lose big at Old Trafford

Three thoughts from another poor result in Manchester Signs of positivity despite loss Don’t let the scoreline fool you, despite being dismantled late in the match by Manchester United, Everton showed some signs of improvement. As Everton settled into the match they showed a willingness to attack that had been absent for a number of weeks. Deploying wing backs instead of a traditional defense, Cuco Martina was able to find acres of space and whip in a few dangerous crosses. Defensively there were some positives as well. Even though the team gave up goals in the early and later stages of...

Player Ratings: Manchester United 4-0 Everton

Player Ratings: Manchester United 4-0 Everton

Matić was immense. De Gea was unbeatable. It was a fiercely fought contest but Manchester United always seemed in control. Everton provided some moments of promise, yet United’s strong defense and the combination of Fellaini and Matić proved too great to breakdown. Three goals in 10 minutes capped off a good performance for Mourinho’s side. David De Gea: 7 The Spaniard wasn’t often called on, but he cleaned up excellently when asked. A big save against his old teammate Wayne Rooney shortly after the start of the second half was arguably the most important save. A delightful top...

Jose Mourinho threatens Wayne Rooney return to Manchester United

Jose Mourinho threatens Wayne Rooney return to Manchester United

Jose Mourinho thinks Wayne Rooney will come back ‘home’. The lovely thing about Jose Mourinho being Manchester United’s manager is, when he’s not going over the top, that he can absolutely hack off any other manager at will. He’s dismantled Arsene Wenger and Rafael Benitez long ago, but he’s getting to both Antonio Conte and Jurgen Klopp too. His provocation of Pep Guardiola was a thing of beauty while the two of them were in Spain. But now he’s even getting on people like Ronald Koeman’s nerves, simply by saying Everton have lofty ambitions after spending £140m. Ashley...
