Manchester United made it 10 wins in 11 in all competitions as they saw off an out-of-form Everton side on Friday.

Marcus Rashford was involved in all three goals as Manchester United secured a place in the FA Cup fourth round with a 3-1 victory over Everton at Old Trafford on Friday.

Frank Lampard’s side were on a run of five defeats in six in all competitions and were soon behind when Rashford superbly set up Antony to put United 1-0 up.

Although Everton equalized when Conor Coady capitalized on David de Gea’s wail to poke home, more silky work from Rashford restored United’s lead when Coady turned his cross past Jordan Pickford for an own goal.

In-form United needed a reprieve in the form of a VAR review to deny Dominic Calvert-Lewin a second equaliser, but Rashford grabbed an own goal from the penalty spot in stoppage time as the Red Devils deservedly progressed to keep their bid for silverware alive. four fronts.

United led after just four minutes, Rashford driving past his man before finding a pinpoint cross for Antony to poke home and moments later it could have been 2-0 when Anthony Martial sent the ball wide of the post.

But Everton almost equalized when Demarai Gray’s long-range drive crashed off the woodwork and they soon found an equalizer when De Gea somehow cleared the ball through the legs of Neal Maupay’s cross before Coady tapped home.

Rashford again played a big part in United’s second, but he made a superb save to the byline before Coady turned his low delivery into his own net.

Everton striker Calvert-Lewin’s display almost paid off when he went level from Gray’s cross, but VAR spotted the winger offside in the play.

Ben Godfrey then had time to tangle with Alejandro Garnach to give Rashford a chance from 12 yards, which he took confidently to cap off a brilliant display to book United’s place in the tie.
