Minute’s silence for MunichVideo
Ahead of kick-off, there was a minute’s silence to remember those who tragically lost their lives in Munich on 6 February 1958. United also marked the occasion by wearing black armbands against Everton. We’ll never die.
A RARE OCCASION
This was only the fourth time in 29 Premier League seasons that United have played a game on the exact anniversary of the air disaster. In 1993, Brian McClair and Eric Cantona scored a goal apiece as United beat Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 at Old Trafford.
Six years later, during the incredible Treble season, the Reds produced a brilliant performance as Nottingham Forest were beaten 8-1 at the City Ground. Our manager and former striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer scored four off the bench, a Premier League record.
In 2010, United went rampant as we overpowered Portsmouth 5-0 at the Theatre of Dreams. Wayne Rooney, Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Carrick were on the scoresheet, in addition to two Pompey own goals.
EL MATADOR LOVES A TOFFEE
Edinson Cavani is in immaculate shape but there’s no doubt he enjoys a toffee once in a while – or playing against them at least! For the third consecutive game against Everton, the long-haired frontman was on target. Our no. 7. opened the scoring with a clinical header as he steered in a superb Marcus Rashford cross.
The Uruguayan scored his first United goal as we won 3-1 at Goodison Park back in November and also found the net when we beat Carlo Ancelotti’s side in the Carabao Cup just before Christmas.
10 ASSISTS FOR NO. 10
Rashford showed he is much more than a goalscorer as he set up Cavani for the first goal of the evening. The Wythenshawe man pulled off an impressive curling cross to the back stick for his striking partner to head home. The assist was his 10th in all competitions so far this campaign and his eighth in the Premier League.
