Anthony Martial scores in the 1-0 victory over Everton at Old Trafford

The first time Sir Bobby Charlton lined up against Everton, the visitors ran out 5-2 winners at Old Trafford. Unsurprisingly, Charlton was on the scoresheet that day – his third goal in what would only be his second appearance for the club, having struck twice on his debut against Charlton Athletic two weeks earlier. Fast forward nearly sixty years, 756 appearances more and an additional 246 goals – United fans witnessed the modern day clash of Manchester United versus Everton, with Charlton overlooking – as the “Sir Bobby Charlton” stand was unveiled.

Back in 1956, Charlton lined up alongside United captain Roger Byrne, Duncan Edwards and Bill Foulkes and would go on to win the league title by eight points ahead of Tottenham Hotspur. Today, Charlton saw a mediocre performance from the home side in what was a lacklustre game to close to the gap on Manchester City in fourth place. Anthony Martial scored the only goal following good work by Tim Fosu-Mensah on the right hand side. The visitors were unlucky not to equalise, with captain Phil Jagielka hitting the woodwork before a snapshot made David De Gea spring into action.

In what wasn’t the most eventful game between the two clubs of all time – Louis van Gaal remarked that his side “stole victory” from Everton – who before today had only lost once on the road in the league. Martial’s goal was the club’s 1,000 goal at Old Trafford in the Premier League era.

Wayne Rooney scores for United versus Everton in the 3-0 victory earlier in the season

Manchester United are looking to overtake West Ham, who drew 2-2 with Crystal Palace yesterday, and close the gap on Manchester City in fourth. Louis van Gaal will be in confident mood having beaten City in the derby 1-0 two weeks ago and will be looking for a repeat victory against Everton from earlier in the season.

United will be without Bastian Schweinsteiger, who picked up a knee injury with Germany over the international break – and will miss the rest of the season. Captain Wayne Rooney, is making good progress and although will not feature against his former club today – is likely to play for the U21s soon. The visitors will be missing midfielder Gareth Barry, who is serving the final match of his two game ban.

On a day that the South Stand is to be named after Sir Bobby Charlton, van Gaal will want to ensure Old Trafford witnesses a performance worthy of the legend himself.

Everton brushed aside by impressive Manchester United display

Wayne Rooney scores his goal at Goodison since 2007 as United ran out 3-0 winners over Everton

Whenever one of Sir Alex Ferguson’s teams lost heavily the fixture before, you knew only too well that there would be a positive reaction in the next game. His successor Louis van Gaal was absolutely delighted with the way in which his Manchester United went about their business at Goodison Park against Everton.

Morgan Schneiderlin, who was dropped two weeks ago for the clash against Arsenal, opened the scoring before Ander Herrera headed home United’s second following a quite brilliant cross from Marcos Rojo on the lefthand side. Wayne Rooney, who first played against his hometown club ten years ago in the 2004/05 season – which United lost 1-0, finished off the scoring having latched onto a through ball by Herrera after Phil Jagielka gave the ball away; his first at Everton since 2007. United were different class and set down a marker ahead of the derby next Sunday at Old Trafford.

Everton vs. Manchester United preview: Can United bounce back?

John Stones beats David De Gea as Everton thrash United 3-0
Manchester United were thumped 3-0 away at Everton last season

The International break is over! The Premier League is back! Also, Manchester United are looking to bounce back from the 3-0 defeat to Arsenal two weeks ago. The club travel to Goodison Park today to take on Everton – who come into game following a 1-1 draw with Liverpool. The home side are in decent form following a 3-2 comeback against WBA at the end of September and will be boosted by the performance of Ross Barkley against Estonia and Lithuania.

United went down 3-0 last season in a deserved victory for the home side following a impressive performance from James McCarthy. The season before saw David Moyes take charge of his last game for the club, however – United went into the fixture last April in decent form having beaten Tottenham, Aston Villa and Liverpool before narrowly losing out to Chelsea. Time has flown in this fixture – with twenty years having past since United went down 1-0 in the 1995 FA Cup Final and thirty years since Norman Whiteside bent one past Neville Southall.

Marouane Fellaini joined Manchester United from Everton for £27.5m in September 2013
Marouane Fellaini returns to Goodison park to face his old side Everton

What a difference a year makes. It was the 20th April 2014 and Everton quashed any slight glimmer of hope Manchester United fans had of a Champions League place, which ultimately sealed the fate of David Moyes. The home side easily brushed aside the visitors with an emphatically confident display, the polar opposition of the limp threat posed by United. Two days later Moyes was gone and United were looking for a successor a mere ten months following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson.

Fast forward twelve months and United look in a much better state with Dutchman Louis van Gaal at the helm. The past six weeks has seen a return to the United of old, with van Gaal’s men picking up nine points against Champions League qualification chasing opponents, in Tottenham, Liverpool and Manchester City. United will hoping for a better result than the 2-0 defeat that ultimately ended Moyes’ regin at the club that he left.

The visitor are with out instrumental Michael Carrick, who has been in great form but missed the recent trip to Chelsea after starring in the 4-2 victory over Manchester City. Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo are also out for United. Louis van Gaal will be hoping David De Gea, who starred in the 2-1 victory over Everton in October, agrees to a contract extension and spurns any advances from Real Madrid. Its vital that going forward, United send out a message to retain the services of arguably the best goalkeeper in Europe.

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.

Chris Smalling is denied as Manchester United lose 1-0 to Everton last season.

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

Danny Welbeck versus Everton
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 lose at home to Everton for the first time since 1992/93

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.
