For more than 30 years we have not seen such a result.
Everton hit Manchester United on Sunday (4-0) in the 35th round of the Premier League. Marco Silva’s team has signed a historic result, achieving the best home record against the red devils since … for 35 years. By that time, more precisely in October 1984, Everton had defeated United by five goals difference (5-0).
Richarlison’s late goals were scored 13 minutes later by a perfect run on a bicycle. With 28 minutes played, Sigurdsson’s David De Gea had a free kick in a decent position.
In the second half, Everton’s triumph won the game thanks to Digne’s ‘missile’ (56 ‘) and Theo Walcoot’s late goal (64’).
With this result, Everton has 49 points and is seventh in a point-in-time equalizer with rival Watford, who beat Huddersfield 2-1 on Saturday.
It should be noted that André Gomes was not used since the Portuguese midfielder was the target of a valid punishment for three games.
