Reunited With Rooney
United missed out on the opportunity to cut the gap between themselves and Chelsea in 4th to just a single point, after a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park on Sunday. They had an opportunity to win the game, but Jordan Pickford’s double save denied Bruno Fernandes and Odion Igahlo, but will also feel relieved that VAR ruled out a last minute goal at the other end, which would have hit their top 4 hopes hard.
Once again, the quality of Bruno stood out, and it feels like a solid midfield is beginning to take shape alongside Scott McTominay and Fred. United still look a little toothless in attack - Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood struggling to have any impact on the match, whereas Everton’s front two of Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin looked much more threatening throughout.
United’s attention now turns to the FA Cup, and the reunion with their all-time top goalscorer and former captain Wayne Rooney on Thursday night at Pride Park, followed by the Manchester derby at Old Trafford on Sunday, and the visit of LASK in the Europa League.
