Everton 4-0 Manchester United: Solskjaer’s men capitulate to second successive defeat [Tweets]

Manchester United slumped to a second defeat in less than a week as Everton handed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer & co. a 4-0 hammering at Goodison Park on Sunday.

The visitors were under the pump pretty much from the get-go, with Everton piling on the pressure. And, Marco Silva’s men grabbed a well deserved lead in the 13th minute, as Richarlison finished from an acrobatic effort that David de Gea had no answer for.

The Manchester United no. 1 was beaten once again just before the half hour mark, as Gylfi Sigurdsson produced a fine curling effort from outside the box. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men limped to half-time, with De Gea also keeping them in the game. But, it all unravelled post the break.

Ten minutes into the second half, Everton were three to the good as Lucas Digne scored from a stunning strike from outside of his boot. And, the win was rounded off in the 64th minute when Theo Walcott beat De Gea when put through on goal by Sigurdsson.

Invariably, the players copped a lot of flak, with the Manchester United fans questioning those who turned up (or did not) on the pitch, with the supporters also expressing their support for Solskjaer at the same time.

But, there were a few who criticised Solskjaer as well.

Meanwhile, Nemanja Matic, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones were singled out by fans, who took out their frustrations on the duo.
