Manchester United are through to the next round after a hard-fought-for win against Everton.
United at times had to weather the storm and did so brilliantly to emerge 3-1 winners against the Toffees.
United got their goals through Antony, an own-goal from Conor Coady and a penalty from Marcus Rashford.
Again, as in recent weeks, Rashford stole the show. Beyond his stoppage-time penalty, it was Rashford’s incredible contribution that forced United’s second goal.
His powerful cross on the outside hit Coady to go past a helpless Jordan Pickford.
Rashford predominantly played on the left before Alejandro Garnacho’s introduction which saw the Englishman moved up top to play as the number nine.
It was his good footwork that resulted in United’s lead being restored, too. He sent the ball into the box early in the second half to catch Everton goal scorer Conor Coady off guard, resulting in an own goal from the defender.
Everton thought they had pulled level once again through Dominic Calvert-Lewin but VAR put an end to their celebrations. Rashford, as the architect of all of United’s good work, then put an end to any of the Toffees’ hopes of getting a draw when he finally got the goal he deserved, converting a late penalty to put the game beyond doubt.
United are now on a seven game winning run and Rashford has been pivotal to that, having scored in each of his last five matches for the club.
