Despite the presence of star players in the English Premier League (EPL) such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood, Manchester United Football Club did not win in front of the home crowd. United had to play a 1-1 draw against Everton at Old Trafford ground.
With this draw, United move to second place with 14 points from seven matches with four wins, two draws and one loss. Whereas Liverpool are on top with the same 14 points from six matches. Ronaldo, who recently scored a goal against Villarreal in the Champions League to win the team 2-1, was not included in the starting line-up by manager Solskjaer.
Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial, Edinson Cavani, and Bruno Fernandez were fielded at the start. These players started creating tremendous pressure against the opposition team on the home ground but no goal could be scored. Then near the end of the first half, Anthony Martial scored a brilliant goal in the 43rd minute to give United a 1-0 lead in the match and Everton could not score a goal till the end of the first half.
In the second half of the match, Solskjaer made two changes in the 57th minute to consolidate the lead. They included Cristiano Ronaldo in place of Cavani and Jadon Sancho in place of Anthony in the first half. However, this did not benefit the team. On the other hand, in the 65th minute, Everton’s Andros Townsend smashed United’s strong defense and scored a brilliant goal to level the score at 1-1.
After this, the responsibility of scoring increased on Ronaldo and Sancho, but for United none of the players could score at home till the end of the match. The draw result disappointed both Ronaldo and manager Solskjaer. Take a look at football highlights as Manchester United played a draw with Everton.
