Manchester United registered consecutive victories in the league for the first time since Louis van Gaal took over as boss, with another tense and nervy 2-1 win over Everton at Old Trafford. As they did against West Ham United, the Reds had to withstand a late barrage of chances and shots on goal, but with David de Gea in inspired form throughout the game, the three points were safe at the final whistle. Here’s a quick review of the talking points from Sunday’s game, looking at the performances in defence, midfield and attack – followed by some concluding praise for United’s lion giant in goal.

Manchester United vs. Everton preview & view from the opposition

Manchester United welcome Everton to Old Trafford on Sunday, looking for the club’s first back to back wins since beating Crystal Palace and WBA back in the spring. The visitors snatched a last gasp point at Anfield last Sunday when Phil Jagielka struck a beauty to silence the Kop. United are without captain Wayne Rooney, who was stupidly sent off for a rash kick at Stewart Downing last weekend in the 2-1 victory over West Ham United.

Before last season, Everton hadn’t won at Old Trafford since 1992/93. Bryan Oviedo gave the away side the lead and the eventual victory at Old Trafford back in December last season and Roberto Martinez will be looking for a repeat result having only picked up one win in six so far this season.

I think I said all that needed to be said about the Everton defeat here. But for formality’s sake, here’s a brief summary of the game – a game which, sadly,  was a pathetic microcosm of United’s entire season. Another game against a top-six team, another loss in what has become a depressingly predictable pattern for David Moyes’s Manchester United. With rumours of Moyes’s imminent sacking seemingly everywhere this evening, we reviewed some of the troubles that were evident against his former club.

Everton vs. Manchester United: Moyes, Barkley and Europe

Manchester United are nine point off Everton, who have played a game more.

Manchester United travel to Goodison Park to face Everton on Sunday, in what will be the 188th clash between the two clubs. Everton have four games remaining to try and beat Arsenal to fourth spot, whilst Manchester United’s season duly ended earlier in the month when the club went out 4-2 on aggregate to the reigning European Champions Bayern Munich.

David Moyes was ridiculed by the Everton supporters in the 1-0 defeat back in December, which obviously riled up the United boss as he has spoken recently about demanding more respect from the Goodison crowd. In the last five games at Everton, United have only won a single match back in the 2011/12 season, although United’s form on the road has been much better than at home this term.

Manchester United 0-1 Everton: Moyes loses to old club

Manchester United hadn’t even signed Eric Cantona the last time Everton were last victorious in the league at Old Trafford. The Yugoslav Preki danced a merry dance around the helpless Peter Schmeichel to give the visitors a 3-0 win. United went onto lift the league title that season, the first time in 26 long years. It is looking highly unlikely that United will be retaining the title come May, as David Moyes’ men find themselves closer to the relegation zone than to the top of the table.

Bryan Oviedo, who was filling in for Leighton Baines – a summer transfer target for the home side, scored the only goal of the game to push Everton up to fourth place, whilst United linger in tenth position. United were unlucky not to hit the back of the net after Tim Howard saved from Patrice Evra’s header and Danny Welbeck hit the bar.

Here we discuss the talking points of the game and welcome feedback from both sets of fans.

Phil Neville is set to be announced as Manchester United’s new coach as David Moyes adds to his back room staff. Neville was bought by David Moyes in the summer of 2005 from Manchester United and made his debut against Sir Alex Ferguson’s men in the August, losing two nil. He made 386 appearances for United since his debut against Wrexham in the FA Cup back in 94/95 season. Neville is in 34th position of all time United appearances.

United’s most decorated player Ryan Giggs, has also been appointed player coach for the new season.

It felt like there was a lot to think about going into this game – City had lost at Southampton; United were off to Madrid a few days after; and United had dropped points in this fixture last year, leading to the title slipping away. This had the feelings of being a game that was that bit more crucial than some of the others lately. Everton too would want to win after Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea all did but they suffered a huge blow in the warm-up as Distin, who’s having a superb season, pulled out with an injury. As ever, we welcome comments from both sets of fans.

It’s not that Everton are a ‘bogey side’ for United but the last two games against them have been unforgettable for all the wrong reasons. Moyes’ men are having another very solid season and are unquestionably the best side on Merseyside right now. With United travelling to Madrid in a few days this game has a dangerous look about it as Fergie may be tempted to leave a couple of players out. As ever, we welcome comments and opinions from both sets of fans.

United travelled the short distance to Merseyside to take on Everton in the final game of the opening round of Premier League fixtures. Shinji Kagawa made his debut but Van Persie was only deemed fit enough for the bench. United had to start with Carrick in defence as Rio Ferdinand became the fourth centre back to miss out through injury. Everton, in front of their home fans played Fellaini up high as the supporting act for Jelavic.
