It was a return from international break in a very convincing fashion for Manchester United who secured a resounding 3-0 win over Everton.
The promising away display against a team that is already expressing much anger towards the Premier League was powered by Alejandro Garnacho’s eye-catching strike, Marcus Rashford’s well-placed penalty, and Anthony Martial’s cute placement into the back of the net.
Here’s how the Red Devils fared at Goodison Park.
Andre Onana – 8.0
While many will be talking about Garnacho’s strike, Onana’s excellent saves to keep the clean sheet probably made him one of the best players on the pitch, especially when you consider the barrage of attempts from Everton.
Diogo Dalot – 8.2
A night where the Portuguese fullback did everything right, particularly with the great cross that led to Garnacho’s opener.
Harry Maguire – 7.5
Had his questionable moments but was overall a commanding figure at the back.
Victor Lindelof – 7.2
Did not do much but soaked up the pressure well.
Luke Shaw – 7.4
Instantly improved United’s build-up in his first start since August.
Scott McTominay – 6.5
Poor display with next to no touches to his name.
Kobbie Mainoo – 7.5
A dribbling maestro already at a tender age and provided crucial defensive contributions.
Marcus Rashford – 7.0
While the Englishman will be relieved to have successfully converted the penalty, his lack of a drive during the fixture is worrying.
Bruno Fernandes – 7.7
Valuable assist and is back to business as usual- creative fountain.
Alejandro Garnacho – 8.5
What. A. Goal. The Argentinian etched his name on the history books and will now be hungry for more for sure.
Anthony Martial – 8.0
Gifted a rare start and responded to the trust in excellent fashion. The Frenchman will be relieved to get back on the scoresheet.
Sofyan Amrabat – 7.4
Steadied the ship and ensured Everton did not sneak in a late consolation goal.
Facundo Pellistri – 6.5
Had his chances but did not take them up.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 6.9
Hannibal Mejbri – N/A
