Manchester United break unwanted record vs Everton

Everton vs Manchester United

Everton hosted Manchester United on Sunday in a key clash for both sides.

After Saturday’s results, Everton would climb up to 7th place with a win over United.

7th place could well be a Europa League spot should Man City win this season’s FA Cup.

As for Man United, they desperately needed three points to keep their top four hopes alive.

Man United’s awful defence

United’s day got off to a very poor start though.

The first 45 was dominated by the Toffees with Richarlison giving them the lead inside 13 minutes.

Gylfi Sigurdsson would then double Everton’s lead in the 28th minute with an excellent long-range effort.

After Sigurdsson’s strike, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Man United have set an unwanted record.

The Red Devils have now conceded 46 league goals this season, their most ever in a single PL campaign.

The last time they let in more was in the 1989/90 season.

They then equalled that record shortly into the second half as Lucas Digne put Everton 3-0 up.
