Champions League Quest Diminishes At Man Utd After Everton Thrashing

Three-time European champions Manchester United have a lot of work to do to finish the current Premier League season in the top-four following their big defeat at Merseyside giants Everton.

The Red Devils were on the end of a 4-0 defeat at the Goodison Park in their Premier League clash against the Toffees.

Brazilian international Richarlison gave the hosts the lead as early as the 13th minute before Gylfi Sigurdsson added a second goal with a long-range strike that Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea had no answer to.

Those two goals gave the Toffees a 2-0 lead at the halftime interval.

Everton left-back Lucas Digne has had a good season for the Toffees in what’s his first season in English football and the Frenchman added a third goal for his team before substitute Theo Walcott rounded up the 4-0 thrashing handed out to the Red Devils.

Manchester United missed out on the chance to secure fourth spot with a win as they stayed in sixth spot.

The Red Devils have now lost their last five games away from home in all competitions having won the previous eight to set a record under the guidance of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Manchester United have now conceded seven goals without scoring from their last two matches.
