Everton 1-0 Manchester United: Toffees secure vital win to boost survival hopes

M

Anchester United’s hopes of qualifying for the Champions League were dealt a blow as Everton secured a vital win in the fight to avoid relegation.

Anthony Gordon scored the winner at Goodison Park in the first half to move Everton four points above Burnley and into the bottom three.

United were abysmal and remain four points behind Tottenham and Arsenal in the race to finish fourth.

Jordan Pickford was in inspired form for Everton, who took the pressure off Frank Lampard.

Lampard wanted to fight from Everton and got a huge performance from his players.

Pickford kept Everton in the game early on with two brilliant saves to deny Marcus Rashford before Everton took the lead after 27 minutes.

The ball fell nicely for Gordon on the edge of the box, his first shot deflected past United captain Harry Maguire and past a wrong-footed David de Gea.

More soon.
