Manchester United vs Everton: What has been said?

Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: “You’ve got to take the good with the good and the bad with the bad sometimes.

“What the boys took from [the win over Southampton] is that we did the right things, we kept good habits.

“I don’t think anyone will get carried away with the scoreline because we know we played against 10 men for the full game and of course that’s demoralising when they lose players like they did.

“When we got the 2-0, the game was more or less over so it was just about doing the right things.

“We’ve not mentioned the game at all, really. Now all the focus has been on Everton.”

Manchester United vs Everton: Match stats and facts

  • Manchester United have lost one of their last 27 home Premier League games against Everton (W20 D6), a 1-0 defeat in 2013/14 under David Moyes.
  • Everton’s only win in their last 11 Premier League matches against Manchester United was a 4-0 victory at Goodison Park in April 2019 under Marco Silva (D4 L6).
  • Since a run of six Premier League matches without a win at Old Trafford, Manchester United have won five of their last seven home games in the competition (D1 L1), scoring 20 goals and conceding just five.
  • Everton are looking to win five consecutive away league games for the first time since April 1970 under Harry Catterick, a season which saw them win their seventh top-flight title.
  • Only Manchester United and Leicester (8 each) have won more Premier League away games than Everton this season (7), with this the Toffees’ most wins on the road in a single league campaign since 2013-14 (8).
  • This will be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s 100th Premier League match as a manager (18 with Cardiff, 82 with Man Utd). He is the 70th different manager to take charge of 100 games, though none of the three who managed their 100th game against Everton have won: Dave Bassett in 1998 (lost 0-2), Roberto Martínez in 2012 (drew 1-1) & Paul Lambert in 2014 (lost 1-2).
  • Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti has led two teams to victories at Old Trafford, winning with Milan in February 2005 and Chelsea in April 2010. Ancelotti could be only the second manager to win away to Manchester United with three different teams in the Premier League era, after José Mourinho (Chelsea, Real Madrid, Spurs).
  • Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes ended a run of five Premier League matches without a goal or assist against Southampton, scoring once and assisting two more. Fernandes netted his 10th penalty goal in what was his 36th appearance, the fastest player to reach that tally in appearances since Andy Johnson in April 2005 (32nd appearance).
  • Man Utd forward Anthony Martial has been directly involved in nine goals in his last 11 appearances against Everton in all competitions (6 goals, 3 assists), scoring and assisting as a substitute in their 2-0 win in the League Cup earlier this season.
  • Anthony Martial’s next appearance for Manchester United will be his 250th in all competitions for the Red Devils, becoming the third Frenchman to reach this milestone for the club after Mikael Silvestre and Patrice Evra.
