Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will now heave a sigh of relief as the Red Devils came from behind to defeat Everton 3-1 at the Goodison Park on Saturday, November 7.

It was a must win fixture for United having returned from the Champions League where they lost Turkish club Istanbul Basaksehir.

Recall that the Old Trafford outfit were also stunned at home in their last Premier League game when Aubameyang's lone goal handed Arsenal all three points.

It was almost going from bad to worse for United as Everton opened the scoring through a Bernard strike in the 19th minute after the Brazilian cut in and placed a shot through the defender's legs and it squirmed past De Gea's right hand at the near post.

But United responded just six minutes later courtesy a Bruno Fernandes' glorious header into the top right, giving Pickford absolutely no chance; 1-1.

Manchester United took the lead for the first time in the game in the 32nd minute when Fred found Marcus Rashford in the middle with a lovely right-to-left diagonal pass.

He slipped wide left to Fernandes, who chipped delicately back into the centre and the ball went in to make it 2-1.

The second half saw both teams approach the game with much more caution as United played better in the middle.

Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani were introduced into the game in the 80th minute and the decision was rewarded as the Uruguayan scored in stoppage time to open his Manchester United account.

It ended; Everton 1-3 Manchester United.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Julian Nagelsman led RB Leipzig to a 5-0 loss to the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer inspired Manchester United in October, but the Red Devils are reportedly interested in the German coach.
