Manchester United defeated Everton at Old Trafford to leapfrog West Ham into fifth on the premier league log.
A day that honoured club legend Sir Bobby Charlton as the South End was renamed after the England great before the start of the match.
The first half was ended goalless like we have seen severally this season – It was the tenth goalless first half draw by Louis van Gaal’s men in the 15 games they’ve played at their famous Old Trafford ground.
Jesse Lingard played a beautiful ball into Anthony Martial but the Frenchman’s effort went wide and at the other end Romelu Lukaku had a sight of goal after Chris Smalling slipped but David de Gea was quickest to the ball as he cleared the danger.
Both sides gave the game a very good go as they went seek breakthrough but the most interesting battle in the first half was the one involving Daley Blind and Lukaku as they were on each other’s case through the half with very limited chances.
In the second half, Lukaku and Blind continued their hassle and the Dutchman produced a fantastic block to stop the Belgian from scoring.
Manchester United took the lead with Martial who finished a swift move which involved Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford, and Fosu-Mensah to hand the home side a 1-0 lead.
Daley Blind went off injured and was replaced by Ecuador winger Antonio Valencia and Everton looked to capitalize. The Toffees nearly got the equalizer but Phil Jagielka’s shot from inside the box was superbly saved by de Gea and helped the Red Devils to a vital win.
