Casemiro, starter for the first time in the Premier, failed in Everton’s 1-0, but made up for it with the 1-2 assist to Cristiano Ronaldo (CR7), who had just entered when Martial was injured
The ‘red devils’ are fifth, one point from the Champions zone, a week after the bump in the derby against City
Manchester United regained victory in the Premier League after the blow in the derby against City (6-3) and placed fifth, one point behind the Champions zone. A goal from substitute Cristiano Ronaldo, his first this season in the English championship, from a pass from Casemiro, who made his debut as a starter, gave the ‘red devils’ victory against Frank Lampard’s Everton at Goodison Park (1-2) .
Erik ten Hag fielded Casemiro as a starter for the first time in the Premier League, placing him alongside Cristian Eriksen in the double pivot, but the Brazilian did not start the game well as a clever error allowed Everton to take the lead in the 5th minute .
Everton score soon
Amadou Onana stole a ball from Casemiro and started a fast forward to Demiral Gray, who found Alex Iwobi at the edge of the box, who fired a powerful, threading shot past David De Gea near the post.
The ghosts reappeared in the panorama of a United that had just been humiliated in the derby the previous day by City (6-3), but a turnover, this time by Idrissa Gueye, allowed them to tie for fourth place. hour.
Antony’s record goal
Bruno Fernandes took the ball from the Senegalese in the center circle, looked for Anthony Martial, whose great through ball left Antony alone, who outplayed Jordan Pickford in his desperate exit.
The Brazilian winger is the first player to score in his first games in a United shirt in its entire history after doing so on his debut against Arsenal and a week ago against City.

Cristiano enters and decides

In the previous play, Casemiro already made it 1-2 when a header from behind went wide by millimeters after Marcus Rashford’s great cross from the left (41′).
The Brazilian, now in his usual defensive role, corrected his mistake at 1-0 by taking the ball from Iwobi and immediately putting in a perfect pass between the lines so that Cristiano Ronaldo stood alone against Pickford and beat her at the short post. It is the first goal this season in the Portuguese Premier and the 700th at club level in his career.
A serious United but that ends up suffering
United continued to take the initiative in the game at all times, although Frank Lampard’s Everton, more through push than good play, opened the game at times with some arrivals in the visiting area.
A quarter of an hour from the end the VAR annulled Rashford 1-3 in a spectacular gallop by giving him the ball in one arm, but United knew how to tie up the points by maintaining the concentration and regularity that Ten Hag asked his players before of the party.
That yes, in the last moments United suffered before the desperate harassment of Everton that forced De Gea to show off to get a poisoned center from James Garner.
