Everton rip United apart

Manchester United’s poor run of form away from home continued as they suffered a humiliating 4-0 defeat at Everton in the Premier League.

Goals from Richarlison (13′), Gylfi Sigurdsson (28′), Lucas Digne (56′) and Theo Walcott (64′) ensured that United would go on to suffer their heaviest Premier League loss in two-and-a-half years.

The bad news for new boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t stop there as United have now gone 11 matches without a clean sheet for the first time since 1998 while also conceding 46 or more goals for the first time ever in a Premier League season.

The Red Devils are now currently sixth in the Premier League standings and a top-four finish appears to be extremely unlikely at this point.

“I just want to apologise to the fans. They’re the only people with the badge on today who can hold their head high, because we can’t.

“We just didn’t perform. That was not worthy of a Manchester United team. That performance is not good enough for a Manchester United team, from me to players, we let the fans down, we let the club down. That performance is difficult to describe because it is so bad.

“They beat us on all the basics. We were beaten on all the ingredients you need, added to the talent. There is no place you can hide on the pitch. We hold our hands up and apologise to everyone associated with the club. We have a perfect chance to make amends on Wednesday,” said Solskjaer.
