Red Devils Come Undone Against Ruthless Toffees
Manchester United fell to a stunning 4-0 defeat to Everton in the Premier League as Everton ran riot at Goodison Park on Sunday.
David de Gea was forced into a fine early save from a close-range Richarlison effort ten minutes into the first half as Everton started strongly, and the Brazilian capitalized with his next chance just two minutes later, firing an acrobatic effort into the roof of the net following a long throw-in.
Manchester United looked to grow into the game with their first real attack of the game 25 minutes in, but Everton responded emphatically with a swift counter attack, rounded off by a sublime Gylfi Sigurdsson strike from 25 yards to double the Toffees’ lead with aplomb.
Everton picked up where they left off in the second half, and Lucas Digne hammered home the Toffees’ third ten minutes into the second half to raise the roof off Goodison Park. Theo Walcott compounded the misery for the visitors as he broke clear of the Manchester United backline to add the fourth just after the hour mark as the Toffees cruised to an emphatic victory.
