ever more disappointing, Manchester United lose to Everton

Traveling to Everton, yet hardly in shape, the Red Devils found a way to lose (1-0) this Saturday.

Visiting Goodison Park on Saturday for the 31and Premier League day, Manchester United lost to Everton (0-1). Still very disappointing in the game, the Red Devils are three points behind – and one game more – than Tottenham (4and) and Arsenal (5and). Qualification for the next Champions League is complicated for Cristiano Ronaldo and his partners. The Toffees, they give themselves air at the bottom of the table.

MU will no longer have the right to make mistakes in their last seven league matches, especially in the event of a victory for the Gunners against Brighton (4:00 p.m.) and of Tottenham at Aston Villa (6:30 p.m.). At the bottom of the standings, Everton remains 17th but regains some ground (4 points with one more game) on the first relegation player, Burnley, who had beaten them in the week (3-2).

Ronaldo stumbles on Pickford

Very rarely dangerous, the “Toffees” have at least shown the state of mind necessary for the long road leading to maintenance in the elite. They were able to turn their backs during Manchester United’s highlight at the start of the match, which did not last more than five minutes with two attempts from Marcus Rashford repelled by Jordan Pickford (9th and 12th minutes).

More present in the duels, facing the almost demobilized Red Devils, Frank Lampard’s players won the midfield battle and took advantage of one of their first incursions into the opposing box to score the only goal of the meeting, on a long shot from hope Anthony Gordon, slightly deflected by Harry Maguire in his goal (27th, 1-0).

They got only one other clear chance in the rest of the match, always by Anthony Gordon (56th), whose strike in ideal position was repelled by central defender Victor Lindelöf. The only other two real opportunities for Manchester United came late in the game. First on a strike from Paul Pogba (81st), who had replaced Fred on injury half an hour into the game, and above all on an attempt by Cristiano Ronaldo in added time, again repelled by Pickford (90 + 3) .
