After winning the Manchester United vs. Everton match, the Red Devils became the first team to go to the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Antony scored a quick goal after successfully converting Rashford’s low cross. However, Conor Coady leveled the match with a simple tap-in after David de Gea’s unclear clearance.

Manchester United played more dominantly, but they got the second goal in the second half from Coady’s own goal.

Rashford sent a crossing from the left side, but Coady’s clearance went toward Everton’s goal. Everton’s striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored an equalizer, but the goal was disallowed for offside.

Alejandro Garnacho was tripped, and Rashford’s cool penalty kick in the last minute of the game just finished Everton’s hope. His penalty, a kind of Neymar-esque style, showed his confidence.

Rashford becomes the first Manchester United player since Wayne Rooney a decade ago, to score in seven games in a row at Old Trafford.

It was United’s fifth win in a row since the Qatar World Cup break. Meanwhile, this Manchester United vs. Everton match result will increase the pressure on Everton coach Frank Lampard.

The Chelsea legend must prove his credibility in the next key league games against Southampton and West Ham.

After the Manchester United vs. Everton match, Lampard said his team deserved a draw, but Rashford’s quality made a difference.

He could be out of a job if Everton doesn’t win against Southampton and West Ham.
