At Goodison Park, Manchester United came from behind to snap Everton’s two-game winning streak thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo‘s 700th club goal.
Ronaldo has had a frustrating season thus far after being relegated to the role of a substitute after failing to secure his desired summer transfer away from Old Trafford.
But after Anthony Martial picked up another injury just three games into his comeback from the previous one, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner was substituted in during the first half.
Taking advantage of Casemiro’s early error, Alex Iwobi gave the hosts the lead. He chose a spot and brought it in from outside the area.
After being set up by Martial, Antony levelled and became the first United player to score in his first three Premier League games.
Ronaldo pounced on Casemiro’s through ball a few minutes to half time, beating Jordan Pickford with a low drive to the England player’s near-post.

What Next For Manchester United After Everton Win?
The English club giants will be looking forward to a clean sheet after dashing out 9 goals in three matches. It could be agreed that a few Manchester United defenders had a knock in the past few weeks, leaving them out of the starting lineup. However, Raphael Varane looked to be back, but could not start for The Red Devils in their trip to Goodison Park.
Meanwhile, when they face Omonoia in the reverse fixture, Erik Ten Hag’s team will be looking forward to a smooth victory to go on level points with Spanish Real Sociedad if they lose, or drop points.
