Well, well, well! What was David De Gea thinking on Saturday? The manner with which he conceded the opening goal at Goodison Park just goes to show that we may never see the best of the spaniard again…at least, not any time soon.
Manchester United actually controlled the vast majority of the game but often lacked that cutting edge. You suspect that when Pogba returns from injury, he and Bruno Fernandes will be let loose to create and score goals for United.
Talking about goals, we will never know if Anthony Martial will ever live up to his full potential but, if he continues to huff and puff and then, disappear in games when his team really need him, United might be better served letting him leave.
And oh, Bruno Fernandez has definitely hit the ground running in the Premier League and shouldn’t surprise many. The man oozes quality on the ball and if you’d watched him in Portugal then you should know one thing is for sure – he’s just getting started.
Everton on the other hand aren’t on the ascendancy either given that, they’ve now only managed to collect twelve points in the last ten games. That is, 12 points out of a possible 30. Although, that means they’ve put some certainty in a season that was anything but certain during the first half of the campaign.
Carlo Ancelotti has definitely brought some belief to Goodison Park and they may yet qualify for the Europa League come season’s end.
VAR disallowed a goal that should have stood in the 92nd minute when Sigurdsson was adjudged to have been interfering with play from an offside position but replay clearly showed the Iceland midfielder did not.
United will probably be kicking themselves for not seizing the opportunity to close the gap on Chelsea giving he plethora of opportunities that came their way in the second half and, having seen the Blues draw earlier in the day.
