Man Utd 2-1 Everton Highlights

Manchester United returned to the Premier League’s top four for the first time in more than a year as Radamel Falcao’s first United goal proved decisive against Everton.

Angel Di Maria’s calm finish gave the hosts a lead that survived to half-time as Leighton Baines saw a penalty saved.

Baines picked out Steven Naismith to nod in an equaliser and Falcao cleared a Phil Jagielka header off the line.

But Falcao stabbed in from Di Maria’s shot to grab the decisive goal.

Van Gaal Post match interview


Everton have won three of their last four games against Manchester United, all in the Premier League.

That includes a 1-0 victory at Old Trafford last season – only their second in 22 Premier League games there.

They are chasing a third successive league win against the Red Devils – a feat they last accomplished in 1921.

Manchester United

The Red Devils are hoping to win back-to-back league games for the first time under Louis van Gaal, and are chasing a third successive victory at Old Trafford.

However, van Gaal will hope not to follow in the footsteps of Alex Ferguson and David Moyes, who both lost their first Premier League home games against Everton as United boss.

Radamel Falcao has more assists in his two league games for United (two) than he managed in the previous three seasons (one).

The Red Devils have already used 29 players in the Premier League this season – six more than any other team (prior to this weekend). They used 30 different players in the whole of 2013-14.


The Toffees’ tally of six points from their opening six league games is their worst start to a season since 2010-11, when they had just three points at this stage.

They have conceded 10 league goals in the second half of matches this season – the highest figure in the top flight prior to this weekend.

They have lost 299 Premier League games – more than any other side.

Phil Jagielka is set for his 250th Premier League appearance.
