A lonely goal from the Mexican Hernandez gave Manchester United the victory against Everton and get right behind Manchester City in the Premier League standings with 23 points.
Despite last week’s horrible performance of Jonny Evans against the table toppers Manchester City which saw the young defender get a red card and leave his team with only 10 men on the pitch, he was still included in Alex Ferguson’s starting XI and surprisingly enough he made a solid display today.
A collective play involving Cleverley, Welbeck and Evra ended finally ended with Chicharito only needing to finish it off with an easy tap into the net giving United the only goal of the match.
Everton had a few chances on leveling the game when Leighton Baines took a free kick but only managed to go above the wall and hitting the crossbar and David De Gea securing the ball.
The assistant referee Andy Halliday got injured in the later minutes of the game and had to be substituted by Phil Dowd while 6 minutes were added but it didn’t change the final outcome of the game and United won 1-0.
