Bruno Fernandes Double, Cavani Strike Earns Man Utd Vital Win At Everton

Manchester United were indebted to Bruno Fernandes as his double earned the Red Devils a morale-boosting 3-1 win over Everton at Goodison Park.

United went into the match with speculation growing over the future of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

However, the United manager insisted he has no concerns on his future. And that confidence appeared well placed as they secured victory at Goodison. They did, however, have to fight back after falling behind to Bernard’s opener.

The first chance of the game fell to Dominic Calvert-Lewin, but he was just unable to flick Bernard’s cross on target.

At the other end, the ball dropped invitingly for Anthony Martial, but he volleyed wide.

The Toffees took the lead after 19 minutes through Brazilian Bernard. He latched onto the ball after Victor Lindelof had headed it into his path. Taking his time, he weaved inside and out before firing past David De Gea at his near post.

The lead, however, did not last for long. Fernandes (25) arrowed home an excellent header into the corner of Jordan Pickford’s net following Luke Shaw’s cross into the box.

Fernandes then grabbed his second after 33 minutes. After some neat build-up play, the ball was worked to Fernandes who clipped a cross into the box. The ball appeared to brush Marcus Rashford’s head and hit the net off the far-post. However, after closing inspection, the goal was credited to Fernandes.

Everton started the second half brightly as they went in search of an equaliser.

However, they count themselves fortunate not to concede a penalty when Pickford fumbled and then appeared to hack Harry Maguire down.

After a VAR check, no penalty was given.

It was a similiar case at the other end when Maguire caught Lucas Digne in the box with a badly-timed tackle. While it looked a penalty, no foul was given due to an offside in the build-up.

That led to some furious reactions from Everton players though who were incensed at the tackle.

As play switched to the other end, Rashford then found himself through on goal only to be denied by Pickford.

But there was still time for Edinson Cavani to score a third for United late on – his first goal for the Red Devils.
