Manchester United grabbed a comfortable 3-0 win against Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday evening. It was Eric ten Hag’s fourth win in five league games as the visitors climbed to sixth in the table with 24 points, just four adrift of a Champions League berth. Much of the pre game talk revolved around Everton fans protesting the ten point deduction earlier this week.
Alejandro Garnacho gave the Red Devils a perfect start with a stunning bicycle kick after just three minutes. Everton were slow off the tracks but did grow into the game and had several opportunities in the first half but couldn’t hit the target from promising positions. Throughout the game, Everton fans held out red banners to wave red cards to the Premier League in protest of the point deduction.
United absorbed the pressure they were put under and came out better of the two sides in the second half. They went 2-0 ahead in the 56th minute when Marcus Rashford dispatched a spot kick to take the game away from the hosts. Antony Martial made it 3-0 with fifteen minutes remaining to pile more misery on Everton who are 19th.

Violations of financial protocols stemming from losses over three years sank Everton. The Premier League dished out a record 10-point deduction. Consequently, Everton dropped into the relegation zone. Manager Sean Dyche said this deduction may act as an impetus for Everton to push out more results. Even if the league table says the 19th-placed team is facing a top-six team, the quality on the field will be ample.
Everton hosts Manchester United: Live updates and score
Both Everton and Manchester United share a disdain for their ownership groups. Everton is in the midst of a sale, but the points deduction could put a strain on that prospect. Manchester United recently sold a quarter of the club to Sir Jim Ratcliffe. Still, United supporters want a full sale and the Glazers to leave the club entirely.
That will not happen by Sunday, so there will be plenty of upset fans in the crowd. Everton is planning a protest that they invited United fans to participate in as well. It lambasts the Premier League for handing out such a harsh punishment while still not putting any punishment on Chelsea or Manchester City.
