After last years debacle at Everton l suppose we can be happy with a draw this time. The match started in a farcical fashion when De Gea delayed his clearance only to have it blocked back into our net to put us 1-0 down. I believe the modern insistence on playing out from the back is wide open to this sort of thing if the forwards have the energy to close down throughout the match. We played our way back into the match and dominated possession though Everton looked dangerous on the break. We definitely look far more capable of getting through defences since Fernandes joined the club. Our goal came from Everton playing out from the back losing the ball close to their goal and Fernandes shooting into the net from outside the area. For the rest of the first half and well into the second it became an end to end game and both teams could have scored. As the match got past the halfway mark in the second half Everton began to dominate and had a succession of corners and free kicks one of which hit the post. We came under a lot of pressure but the defence stood up to it well and we still looked capable of scoring in a break. We very nearly did get a goal from a Fernandes shot and an Ighalo poke but they brought a great double save from the goalkeeper. Just before the end of the match our friend VAR came to our rescue again when a miss hit shot took a deflection and rolled into our net. Thankfully the correct decision was reached when the Everton player sat in front of De Gea blocking his view who also moved his foot to allow the ball to creep into the net was given offside. Not a win and the 3 points we wanted but a battling draw the like of which we dont get often enough anymore. No doubt for me MOTM was Maguire who commanded the area against all corners and free kicks doing exactly the job we bought him to do. Next match is Derby County away in the FA Cup on Thursday. Come on United! 🇾🇪

The result we wanted and qualification for the CL. Not a great game in any way neither team played very well. It was a very nervous affair altogether with no real pattern to it. Each team had periods

Torturous is the only way l can describe the feeling watching tonights match. We seem to have hit a wall in the last couple of weeks. Fernandes in particular seems to have dropped off terribly. No fau

We got the win we wanted but it was very nervous at times. Theres no doubt Crystal Palace were the better team in the first half. It took us around 20 minutes to make any sort of impression in the gam
