Late is better than never. After all of the shoddy finishing, it is very fitting for United that a “defensive-minded” man made the breakthrough. Sancho displayed good vision to recognise McTominay’s run, and he skillfully took advantage of Keane’s somnolence and Pickford’s porousness.
Everton’s defence has been incredibly lax all afternoon, but United has applied near-constant pressure, and this has been one of their best halves of the season. It has undoubtedly been the most original.
De Gea masterfully used the Everton corner while Dyche was yelling at his team not to overcommit. Not Antony. Because he was on his right foot and lacks the burst of speed to leave a defender for dead, you never imagined he would score.
Either United will score soon, or it will be one of those days. Inside the first twelve minutes, they had five excellent opportunities: the three-on-one, the one-on-one, the ball from Antony to Rashford, the shot off the post by Antony, and the wide shot from Wan-Bissaka.
All of this has only served to confirm that United needs a goal striker this summer. By the way, they are playing excellently, and Fernandes’ decision to play from deep once more is producing the desired results.
Everton has received two passes from Manchester United. The three-on-one opportunity was nearly as fantastic as Rashford’s one-on-one opportunity. Because the strike was too close to him, Pickford was unable to stop it.
