Manchester United vs Everton LIVE: Premier League result and final score after Fernandes and Rashford goals

Manchester United returned to winning ways in the Premier League as a pair of first-half penalties, both won by Alejandro Garnacho, helped Erik ten Hag’s side to a 2-0 victory over beleaguered Everton at Old Trafford.

Injury-hit United were sloppy throughout the contest but were gifted two spot-kicks through Everton mistakes. Garnacho was first kicked by Everton captain James Tarkowski in the box before the winger was tripped by Ben Godfrey. Bruno Fernandes put the first penalty past Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford before United changed their taker for the second, with Marcus Rashford successfully converting against his England teammate.

Everton never looked like scoring as their winless run extended to 11 games in the Premier League, deepening the club’s relegation fears. United remain sixth but victory was needed to get their top-four push back on track,following defeats to Fulham and Manchester City.

And there we are, Simon Hooper blows his whistle to bring a largely forgettable match to an end. Everton did OK but lacked composure in both boxes. United had bright moments but ultimately needed Everton’s mistakes to earn two first-half penalties, which won them the game.

Manchester United 2-0 Everton

14:22 , Lawrence Ostlere

90+1 min: Alejandro Garnacho is awarded player of the match. To be honest, no one has played especially well, but he was certainly a gamechanger with his first-half performance and those two penalties won.

14:20 , Lawrence Ostlere

88 min: Youssef Chermiti replaces Mykolenko for Everton.

For United, Evans is replaced by young defender Willy Kambwala, and the veteran is applauded off the field after another hard shift.

14:18 , Lawrence Ostlere

86 min: Everton are probing but just can’t create that killer chance. At the other end United look to counterattack, and McTominay earns a free-kick when Tarkowski bundles into him.

Manchester United 2-0 Everton

14:13 , Lawrence Ostlere

82 min: Another change by Erik ten Hag, as Antony replaces Garnacho. Two penalties won is a good day’s work, although Garnacho should have scored at least once himself to kill off the game.

Manchester United 2-0 Everton

14:12 , Lawrence Ostlere

80 min: This game has an odd feel about it, where Everton seem resigned to defeat and United don’t have the need – or necessarily the capability – to score either. It’s all a bit flat.

14:10 , Lawrence Ostlere

77 min: Sofyan Amrabat is on for United now, replacing Mainoo.

73 min: Two former United players swap places in the Everton team, as Garner is replaced by Ashley Young. He receives a big applause from the Old Trafford crowd.

67 min: ...but Andre Gomes’s effort is headed clear by Casemiro in the United wall.

13:57 , Lawrence Ostlere

66 min: Lindelof jumps into the back of Onana just outside the United box and concedes a clumsy foul. This free-kick is in a threatning position...

Manchester United 2-0 Everton

13:56 , Lawrence Ostlere

63 min: Chaos in the Everton box! Evans, Lindelof and McTominay all try to poke a loose ball home from a few yards out while a cluster of defenders in blue fail to clear. It’s Lindelof who finally makes solid contact but it’s not solid enough, and Pickford falls on the rolling ball to end the scrap.

Manchester United 2-0 Everton

13:53 , Lawrence Ostlere

61 min: Sean Dyche has seen enough and makes a triple change: Calvert-Lewin, Gomes and Dobbin come on; Beto, Doucoure and Harrison come off.

Manchester United 2-0 Everton

13:51 , Lawrence Ostlere

59 min: Another chance for Garnacho, as Bruno Fernandes whips the ball across the six-yard box for the Argentine arriving at the far post, but he has to slide and quite can’t get the required purchase on the shot.

Manchester United 2-0 Everton

13:50 , Lawrence Ostlere

57 min: Doucoure tries to get a shot away in the box but it’s blocked. Everton have started the second half pretty well in what is generally quite a scrappy game.

Manchester United 2-0 Everton

13:47 , Lawrence Ostlere

55 min: Dominic Calvert-Lewin is preparing to come on. Beto has been very quiet.

Manchester United 2-0 Everton

13:45 , Lawrence Ostlere

53 min: Garnacho is again at the heart of United’s good attacking play. He receives Bruno’s pass on the right of the box and tries to find the roof of the net from a tightening angle, but his shot whistles over the bar.

Manchester United 2-0 Everton

13:42 , Lawrence Ostlere

49 min: Once again, as in the first half, Everton take advantage of United’s weak area in the centre of the pitch, as Harrison drifts inside and collects a pass before driving at goal. He passes to Godfrey arriving on the overlap down the right, but Godfrey sprays the ball wastefully behind goal. Sean Dyche throws his arms in the air.

Everton have been excellent at getting into the final third and terrible at deciding what to do when they get there.

Manchester United 2-0 Everton

13:38 , Lawrence Ostlere

47 min: Bruno Fernandes slides in Garnacho on goal, but he’s offside. That was Bruno’s fault, for me – he took too long to release the ball and the winger had already made his run.

Kick-off! Manchester United 2-0 Everton

13:36 , Lawrence Ostlere

We’re back under way at Old Trafford.

Half-time: Manchester United 2-0 Everton

13:31 , Lawrence Ostlere

That was a strange half. Everton were the better team for the first half an hour or so, and didn’t necessarily deserve to be trailing. But the second goal seemed to derail them, and United could well have scored a third before half-time.

This game is not over by any means, but Everton need to refind their composure in the second half and take one of their chances which will inevitably come along, because this United team are a generous bunch.

Half-time: Manchester United 2-0 Everton

13:23 , Lawrence Ostlere

It should be three! McTominay plays a brilliant pass through for Garnacho driving in from the right side, who is in on goal. Garnacho delays, which allows the chasing Branthwaite back but a dummy sends the defender to the floor. But instead of pulling the trigger, the winger takes another touch and it’s too heavy, allowing the supine Branthwaite to flick the ball to safety with his toe. A big chance missed.

And that’s half-time.

Manchester United 2-0 Everton

13:18 , Lawrence Ostlere

45+2 min: Four minutes will be added on and United are continuing to press for a third goal. This time Lindelof tries his luck from the edge of the box, but it’s straightforward for Pickford to stop.

Manchester United 2-0 Everton

13:17 , Lawrence Ostlere

45 min: Another big penalty appeal from United! Garnacho pulls the ball back from the byline and a sliding Mykolenko blocks it with his arm. The contact isn’t in doubt, but Simon Hooper believes the Everton defender was using his arm to assist his slide and waves play on. VAR doesn’t disagree.

Manchester United 2-0 Everton

13:13 , Lawrence Ostlere

41 min: Garnacho dribbles at Mykolenko but loses control and the defender clears the ball into touch. A moment later, United’s goalkeeper Onana tries a throughball to Rashford making a run inside from the left side, but Everton’s centre-backs crowd him out on the edge of the box.

Manchester United 2-0 Everton

13:10 , Lawrence Ostlere

39 min: Pickford launches a free-kick from the halfway line into the United box, but it’s simply dealt with.

GOAL! Manchester United 2-0 Everton (Rashford pen, 36)

13:07 , Lawrence Ostlere

Marcus Rashford takes a long, slightly curious run-up featuring sidesteps, little mini steps, a hop, and finally a firm finish into the left side of the goal. Pickford goes the other way, and it’s 2-0.

Penalty to Manchester United!

13:06 , Lawrence Ostlere

34 min: Oh, there is no debate about this one. It’s Garnacho again, who wriggles into the box where Ben Godfrey dives in and trips him after the ball had been gone. Rashford will take this penalty...

Manchester United 1-0 Everton

13:05 , Lawrence Ostlere

32 min: A moment of controversy as Mykolenko dives towards the ball inside his own box, trying to head it clear, and ends up missing completely. It bounces up against his arms and Old Trafford roars for a penalty, but instead referee Simon Hooper gives Everton a free-kick for a push on the Everton defender by Fernandes. The Portuguese is typically displeased.

Manchester United 1-0 Everton

13:01 , Lawrence Ostlere

29 min: Manchester United’s best move of the game starts near their own corner flag. Fernandes and Jonny Evans work the ball out of that area and upfield, where Garnacho finds Rashford on the left wing, who plays a big switch to Fernandes arriving in the Everton box on the right side. Fernandes tries to slip in McTominay who fizzes a dangerous cross into the six-yard box, but McTominay is ruled offside. Flowing stuff but no reward.

Manchester United 1-0 Everton

12:59 , Lawrence Ostlere

28 min: A great save by Pickford! Fernandes’ effort curled over the wall and was heading towards the top corner when Pickford stretched out a glove to push it away from goal.

Manchester United 1-0 Everton

12:58 , Lawrence Ostlere

27 min: United have a free-kick about 20 yards or so from goal, in quite a central position, after a foul by Onana which earns the Everton midfielder a yellow card. Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford stand over it...

Manchester United 1-0 Everton

12:57 , Lawrence Ostlere

25 min: Another chance for Everton! This time Garner fires from the edge of the box, forcing a decent stop from Onana. It rebounds to Onana (Everton’s edition), who shoots off target. That was a bit rash, and Dyche throws his arms in the air in frustration.

Manchester United 1-0 Everton

12:54 , Lawrence Ostlere

22 min: Another sniff for Harrison, arriving at the far post to try and turn home a deep cross. Varane seemed to be unaware of a man behind him and was almost caught out, but Harrison couldn’t quite stretch enough to get his leg around the defender and get his toe on the ball.

Bruno Fernandes’ penalty is the difference

12:50 , Lawrence Ostlere

18 min: Good football by Everton, this, who switch the ball out to the left wing for Mykolenko in open space. He looks inside and passes to Harrison drifting into a central area without a marker, who takes a touch before firing over from just outside the box.

Manchester United 1-0 Everton

12:48 , Lawrence Ostlere

16 min: Garnacho collects the ball on the right side of the box and tees up the arriving Bruno Fernandes alongside him, but the captain’s shot is high, high over the bar and he shakes his head.

Manchester United 1-0 Everton

12:46 , Lawrence Ostlere

14 min: Lindelof trips Harrison and Everton gain a free-kick in the centre of the pitch. Branthwaite tries a pass around the back of United’s defence to Beto but the striker is just offside.

GOAL! Manchester United 1-0 Everton (Fernandes pen, 12)

12:43 , Lawrence Ostlere

Bruno Fernandes takes a deep breath, waits for the whistle, then steps forward and slams the penalty into the right corner, just past the left hand of a diving Jordan Pickford.

Penalty to Manchester United!

12:41 , Lawrence Ostlere

9 min: Alejandro Garnacho collects Rashford’s pass on the left side of the box, and jinks back away from James Tarkowski, who flashes a toe towards the winger. Garnacho goes down under minimal contact and the referee points to the spot. A bit soft, but it won’t be overturned.

Manchester United 0-0 Everton

12:39 , Lawrence Ostlere

7 min: United looking a bit sharper now, they’ve woken up. Rashford dances into the box and tries to get away a shot but he’s well stopped by Branthwaite. United gain a corner, but Casemiro’s header is easy for Pickford to catch.

Manchester United 0-0 Everton

12:36 , Lawrence Ostlere

4 min: It looks like McTominay leading the line once more for United with Bruno Fernandes in behind him. Garnacho and Rashford are wide.

Manchester United 0-0 Everton

12:34 , Lawrence Ostlere

2 min: This is a really good start by Everton, who are without doubt the more assured in the first couple of minutes. No clear sight of goal, but their hustling of United on the ball has already provoked a couple of mistakes.

Kick-off! Manchester United 0-0 Everton

12:31 , Lawrence Ostlere

Here we go! The Premier League weekend has begun.

Pressure pressure pressure?

Manchester United could today equal a club record of 12 Premier League defeats in a single season - previously set in 2013/14 and 2021/22.

There are 10 matches remaining after today.

The good news for Ten Hag is United have never lost three in a row in the Premier League since the Dutchman took charge, while he’s also won all four matches he’s played against Everton.

Everton have played at Old Trafford 31 times in the Premier League, but have only won twice. Bryan Oviedo’s winner in December 2013 was the last time they won away at Manchester United.

Today, the hosts are aiming for a 41st Premier League win over Everton - which would be a record for the most wins by one club against another.

Manchester United set up Old Trafford expert task force

12:02 , Jamie Braidwood

Exciting plans at Old Trafford? There could be very soon. The club have set up an expert task force to plan to regenerate Old Trafford and build one of the best stadiums in the world.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe described it as a “once-in-a-century opportunity” to give United the Wembley of the north or a ground comparable with Barcelona’s Nou Camp or Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu.

Lord Sebastian Coe, the chair of the London 2012 Olympics organising committee and former athlete and MP, will lead the ‘Old Trafford Regeneration Task Force’ which will include the former United captain Gary Neville, the mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham and the chief executive of Trafford Council Sara Todd.

United will not move away from Old Trafford but will study the options of redeveloping the current ground or building a new one on adjacent land that they already own.

They want a ground capable of staging internationals and finals as well as providing a far more modern stadium than the current version of Old Trafford, which has barely been changed for almost two decades.

Ten Hag makes bold Manchester United claim after reaching 100 games in charge

11:46 , Jamie Braidwood

Believe it or not - Erik ten Hag has the highest win ratio of any permanent Manchester United manager in history.

With 60 wins from his first 100 games in charge, it’s higher than even Sir Alex Ferguson - who retired with 59.67%.

And Ten Hag believes his percentage could have been even better - had it not been for injuries during his time at Old Trafford.

“Imagine if we had many more players available, not so many setbacks in injuries, it could have been easily 70 or 75 wins and that tells the bright future of this team when players are available,” he said.

“Because if you compare it, you compare it with other managers or other teams who were in a build-up stage, or with previous managers in this big club, then you can see there is a bright future.

“Also, I think it’s a good balance in ages in this squad, where young players, middle-aged players, experienced players together.

“Imagine when they are available. As I said, we could have easily win from 100 games 75 and that’s a big difference I think with the stats you mentioned.”

Everton, winless in 10, also stay unchanged despite also losing 3-1 last weekend, when they were thumped by West Ham at Goodison Park.

Beto will lead the line with Abdoulaye Doucoure playing off him. James Garner and Jack Harrison retain their places in midfield.

Dyche throws support behind Calvert-Lewin: ‘It’ll come’

11:14 , Jamie Braidwood

Sean Dyche remains confident Dominic Calvert-Lewin will find his scoring form again for Everton. The 26-year-old has only scored four goals this season, with the last one coming back in October.

Dyche said: "It's finding the moment, taking the moment, and he's well aware of that. No striker has forgotten their record.

"I certainly don't mention it to him. I just want him to work hard, I want him to play for the team, I want him to get in the right areas. I know the quality he's got, I know his aerial power, I know he can finish and different types of finishes. And it'll come.

"It's believing in what we do, believing in himself and continuing to do the right things. Sometimes you need one that comes off your shin but sometimes you can make it come off your shin by just being alert and alive to things that are bouncing around the box."

Solskjaer reveals biggest ‘problem’ with managing Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United

10:58 , Jamie Braidwood

Former Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been in the headlines this week as he gave an interview to Stick to Football on his time in charge Old Trafford.

Notably, Solskjaer said the decision to bring Cristiano Ronaldo back to United proved to be a mistake for all parties as it required him to change how he asked his team to play.

Solskjaer has revealed how close United came to signing Erling Haaland and Jude Bellingham when he was in charge at the club.

Premier League’s hopes of gaining extra Champions League spot dealt blow

10:38 , Jamie Braidwood

But United’s hope of the Premier League gaining an extra Champions League spot in next season’s revamped competition have been dealt a blow following a poor night of results in Europe this week.

The Champions League is being expanded to a 36-team tournament from 2024/25 and two of the extra four places will be awarded to countries whose teams perform best in this season’s European competitions.

As confirmed by Uefa on their website, England currently sits third in the race, behind Italy and Germany, which would mean Serie A and the Bundesliga receive a fifth Champions League place next season.

The margin between Germany and England has widened following Thursday’s Europa League results.

Fernandes admits derby loss makes it ‘hard’ for United to reach top four

10:20 , Jamie Braidwood

Bruno Fernandes admitted it is “going to be hard” for Manchester United to qualify for the Champions League after defeat in the derby last weekend. A 3-1 defeat to City left sixth-placed United 11 points behind Aston Villa with 11 matches remaining.

“We need to look forward,” Fernandes told MUTV. “We don’t depend only on ourselves to get in the positions we want. We’re not hiding from that.

“We want to be in the Champions League, we want to try until the end of the season to get into that fourth place.

“That gives you the possibility to be in the Champions League, so we know it’s going to be hard, but we have to do everything that is on our hands that we can do.

“Going to the next game at home, we know that our fans will be there again, over and over again.

“They’re being behind us, they push us and next game we have to go there and win that game.”

Good morning

10:00 , Jamie Braidwood

Manchester United host Everton in the Premier League this afternoon with manager Erik ten Hag one again under the spotlight following back-to-back defeats. Last Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to Manchester City left United trailing fourth-place Aston Villa by 11 points in the Premier League table, after Ten Hag’s side were beaten by Fulham at Old Trafford the week before.

Now United will look to get their top-four push back on track against an Everton side who are winless in their last 10 Premier League games. Last month, Sean Dyche’s side had the boost of their points penalty being reduced to only six points, but the Toffees are in need of picking up some more on the pitch after they were beaten at home by West Ham last time out.

Alejandro Garnacho’s spectacular overhead kick helped United to a comfortable 3-0 win at Goodison Park earlier this season, but routine wins at Old Trafford have been few and far between for Ten Hag’s side. Can the visitors frustrate United to pick up crucial points in the relegation battle?
