Bruno Fernandes celebrates with Edinson Cavani and Scott McTominay.

Who was our Man of the Match against Everton?

Saturday 06 February 2021 23:21

Manchester United endured a frustrating night at Old Trafford as we dropped two points to Everton in the Premier League.

While it was an ultimately disappointing occasion on Saturday, the 3-3 draw was sprinkled with plenty of moments of quality from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.

In particular, all three goals were of the highest quality. The first saw Marcus Rashford’s sublime cross pick out Edinson Cavani at the back post and he rose excellently to plant the ball into the visitors’ goal.

That was the striker’s third goal against Everton this season and his seventh since signing for the Reds last summer.

Later in the first half, Bruno Fernandes chipped Everton goalkeeper Robin Olsen from the edge of the area, a goal which drew comparisons with Eric Cantona’s dinked effort against Sunderland in 1996.

There seemed to be nothing on at the edge of the area when our no.18 nonchalantly flicked the ball into the smallest of gaps over the Swede’s head.

In the second period, Scott McTominay grabbed a third with a well-timed and directed header from a pinpoint Luke Shaw cross.

It was the three goalscorers who dominated the post-game Man of the Match vote in our Official App.

But ultimately, it was once again Bruno who came away with the crown - his ninth win this campaign already. The Portuguese midfielder’s goal-of-the-season contender earned him 46 per cent of the vote, followed by Cavani in second place.

McTominay took the bronze medal spot on this occasion, just ahead of the man who provided the assist for his goal on Saturday night.
