Manchester United would have welcomed a domestic lift on Sunday night. It is after returning from the international break. They had a terrible performance at the Etihad. Alex Ewobi scored after just five minutes at Goodison Park. Erik ten Hag’s team put up an impressive performance.
United snapped Everton’s long six-match Premier League undefeated record. Antony leveled the game 10 minutes later. This was before Cristiano Ronaldo created even more history on Merseyside.
Everton Blows a Chance
Everton was just hanging on to their Premier League membership in May. Many believed that Frank Lampard’s team would be relegated again.
The Blues enter Sunday’s game on a six-match undefeated run in the Premier League.
Iwobi provided the ex-Chelsea manager with a perfect side. He scored the goal after just five minutes. Fans across Goodison Park felt that their team blew a wonderful opportunity.
Everton held the lead for only 10 minutes. It happened when Antony equalized. He could not get much of a footing in the second half. The hosts’ six-match undefeated streak ended. They would have been relieved to see Dominic Calvert-Lewin. He returned from another long-term injury trouble.
Erik Ten Hag Demands a Response
Erik ten Hag had made it plain. He wanted an early response from his team. This is after they returned from the international break. They had a terrible 6-3 score against their loud neighbors. Previous Premier League winners earned a hard-fought 3-2 victory away. It happened at Omonia in midweek.
The former Ajax manager’s team started the 2022/23 season with a horror run. Sunday’s visitors are one point away from climbing into the top four. United supporters would have been pleased. Summer recruit Casemiro made after making his full domestic debut here. He deserved all three points.
