Cavani turned over the line to Man Utd, while the withdrawn Martial scored the opening goal as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side failed to win the second Premier League game in a row at home.

According to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Martial came in and done well, scored a good goal. It took Edinson Cavani minutes and he got an hour, he could score.
Fresh from a 1-0 loss at home to Aston Villa over the weekend, Man Utd were once again disappointed at home after Townsend’s finish from a swift counterattack earned Everton points. Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer added that they did have enough players behind the ball and made a couple of bad decisions that cost them those 10 seconds on that counterattack. This is where they were quite well organized behind the ball, but they had to handle the danger better.
Each game is a big game at Man Utd. they just have to be focused, make sure they make good use of the international break, they are like coaches who stay at home, come back with energy again, clear focus, good thinking. According to Ole they dominated today, they just couldn’t get the second goal they wanted. Everton, they knew from last season, could have scored out of nowhere.
