Manchester United ends losing streak with 2-0 victory over Everton

Posted : 09 March 2024

Manchester United halted their two-match losing streak with a 2-0 victory over Everton at Old Trafford, thanks to first-half penalties converted by Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford.


Despite Everton being the fifth team in six Premier League games to amass at least 20 shots against Erik ten Hag's side, their inefficiency and reckless defending cost them.


Captain James Tarkowski and defender Ben Godfrey's rash challenges resulted in penalties, both clinically dispatched by Fernandes and Rashford. The win pushed United within three points of fifth-placed Tottenham, although Tottenham has two games in hand.


Following defeats to Fulham and Manchester City, Manchester United's victory is crucial for their pursuit of a top-four finish and Champions League qualification. The outcome also dealt another blow to Everton's dismal form, accumulating only five points from 11 games.


The Merseyside derby's cancellation due to Liverpool's FA Cup commitments adds to Everton's woes, potentially placing them in the relegation zone during the international break. Despite United's success, there were missed opportunities, with Alejandro Garnacho impressing but failing to convert some chances.


Garnacho's impact, along with the crucial penalties, marked a turning point in the young Argentine's emergence as a potent offensive force for Manchester United.
