Manchester United FC vs Everton FC Premier League Match Result March 2024

The 2023/24 Premier League season has kicked off, and you can stay updated with every match and goal right here with The Independent.

This season, Manchester City aims to defend their title and achieve an unprecedented fourth consecutive championship. Pep Guardiola's dominant City squad, which also clinched the Champions League and FA Cup last season, faces stiff competition from the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool, and others in their quest for a historic sixth league title in seven years.

In a remarkable feat of progress, Luton Town makes its debut in the Premier League after ascending from non-league football over the past decade. Following Championship winners Burnley and runners-up Sheffield United, Luton earned promotion to the top flight.

In a peculiar match, Everton became the fifth team in six Premier League games to register at least 20 shots against Erik ten Hag's team, yet they were punished for their wastefulness and defensive errors.

Captain James Tarkowski and defender Ben Godfrey both committed reckless challenges on Alejandro Garnacho.

Fernandes converted the first penalty with a precise low shot to Jordan Pickford's left corner.

Despite it appearing to be an unnecessary risk, United's captain handed the responsibility to Rashford for the second penalty. Rashford maintained his composure and sent Pickford the wrong way, securing his seventh goal of the season.

Following defeats to Fulham and Manchester City, the victory brought United within three points of fifth-placed Tottenham, although Ange Postecoglou's squad has two games in hand.

Considering the results of Thursday's European matches, securing fifth place no longer guarantees Champions League qualification as it once did.

Everton's loss extended their dismal run, having collected only five points from 11 games. With next week's Merseyside derby postponed due to Liverpool's FA Cup commitments, Sean Dyche's side could find themselves in the relegation zone during the international break.

Final Result

  • Manchester United FC 2 - 0 Everton FC
