Manchester United, fifth in the Premier League, recovered well from the correction received against City last weekend (3-6) by beating Everton this Sunday (2-1). Led to the score quickly on a superb strike from Iwobi (5th), the Mancunians recovered from this difficult start thanks in particular to the first goal of the season from Cristiano Ronaldo (44th), the 700th of his professional club career.
The Portuguese had just entered in place of Anthony Martial when he scored from the left, well launched from deep by his former Real Madrid team-mate Casemiro. The French striker, author of a decisive pass on the equalizer of Anthony (15th), came out touched at the half-hour mark. Bad news when he had just made his return at the beginning of October after an injury to an Achilles tendon. Hit in an ankle last week, Raphaël Varane entered during stoppage time.
