Cristiano Ronaldo came off the bench to score his 700th club goal as Manchester United came from behind to win 2-1 against Everton at Goodison Park.
After Antony cancelled out Alex Iwobi’s early strike, an injury to Anthony Martial presented Ronaldo with his opportunity inside the first half and he did not waste it, scoring his first Premier League goal of the season before the break.
Marcus Rashford thought he had made it three late in the game but his goal was ruled out for an inadvertent handball. But though Everton pushed hard late on in pursuit of an equaliser, it came to nothing as Manchester United secured a deserved win.
The result, a fifth Premier League win in six games for Erik ten Hag’s side, sees United bounce back from their derby defeat and lifts them up to fifth in the table. Frank Lampard’s side are down in 12th, their unbeaten six-game run at an end.
How Man Utd turned it around at Everton
Everton had enjoyed the ideal start. The in-form Iwobi curled the ball beyond David de Gea from well outside the penalty box to spark wild celebrations among the home support. It was another sluggish start by United, Casemiro culpable as he was dispossessed.
