Final result: Everton battled late but lose 2-1. Blues certainly had their chances but couldn’t grab them, while United did.

90’+6’: Last minute corner for Everton. We haven’t scored from one of these all season... and won’t today either.

90’: The ref has added six minutes.

82’: Blues are in a 4-4-2 now, with Lookman on the right wing, Richarlison left and DCL & Tosun up top.

81’: Good point raised by the commentators about why Smalling hasn’t been sent off - he already had a yellow card from the first half. The foul for the penalty was certainly worth a booking.

76’: Chris Smalling takes Richarlison down in the box.. PENALTY!
Sigurdsson.. GOALLLLLL!! It’s 2-1! Confident finish into the top right.

Walcott and Gueye are off, and Marco Silva is going all in with Cenk Tosun and Dominic Calvert-Lewin. Give me a minute to sort out the formation!

72’: Oh Seamus. Always more likely to shoot high than not, he does again. Put through by a beautiful ball from Richarlison, and Seamus Coleman just blazes it way over with only De Gea in front of him.

65’: Romelu Lukaku is coming on for Marcus Rashford. Mou decides he wants a third.

61’: First sub for the Blues is Ademola Lookman, coming on for Bernard. This really should have been 2-1.

56’: Save Pickford! Keeps the Blues in the game after the defence gives Paul Pogba all kinds of space and time. His shot low at the near post is smartly saved.

51’: So close Everton. Bernard runs through onto a fantastic through ball from Gylfi Sigurdsson, goes around David De Gea, and then takes too long to find his footing and shoots wide.

49’: Anthony Martial has made it 2-0 with a beautiful one-time finish into the far corner. No chance for Jordan Pickford. Questions can be asked of Seamus Coleman and Theo Walcott who afforded him way too much time to shoot.

Apologies for missing the fist half folks, normal service resumed now.


Everton have bounced back well from an early season slump with three straight wins in the Premier League and Marco Silva finally has his full complement of players available to him following a number of injury issues.

Hosts Manchester United have hit a bad patch of their own with embattled manager Jose Mourinho finding himself a target of the fans’ ire, and the Portuguese boss in turn directing that towards the club’s Board after a quiet summer in the transfer market.
