Everton 1-3 Man Utd: Fernandes Reduces Sack Pressure On Solskjaer

Everton 1-3 Man Utd Fernandes Sack Pressure Solskjaer

Bruno Fernandes got a brace in the clash against Everton to eased the pressure on boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Manchester United got back to winning ways.

Following their calamitous defeat against Istanbul Basaksehir in midweek and a loss to Arsenal last Sunday, it looked like the visitors were heading for more negative headlines when Everton took the lead after 19 minutes.

Jordan Pickford's punt forward was flicked on by Dominic Calvert-Lewin before Bernard found the bottom corner with a crisp strike.

But within the space of 13 minutes, Solskjaer's team completed a turnaround.

They equalised five minutes after going behind when Fernandes ghosted into the box and headed past Pickford.

United went ahead again as Fernandes's lofted cross towards Marcus Rashford dropped into the bottom corner.

Edinson Cavani then crowned it all by scoring his first goal for the club on the counter-attack in the final minute of added time.

The win see United avoid their worst start to a top-flight season after seven games since 1990-91, and gives Solskjaer breathing space as the Premier League heads into the International break.
