United still keeping Premier League tight after notching the win against the Toffees as Ronaldo scoring two Goals for United.
United However without Van De Sar,Rio and Hargreaves had a good show in Everton game. The game wasnt easy and the win wasn’t lucky at all.The match had lot of tense and action in last 20 minutes which barely Everton could hold on to.Second half performance was a better highlight for both United and Everton. Everton was the best team right now who deserved to beat United but it wasnt to happen.
With 22 minute of dead play United struck the goal from brilliance of Ronaldo.The Portugese collected the ball from Tevez and striked an expection left footed which barely made Tim Howard move.Ronaldo’s 10 goal of premier league which made him level with Arsenal’s Adebayor.
Everton were didnt waste a minute and sprung back in game with Cahill scoring the lone Goal of Toffees after he guided the ball with a brilliant header on Pineaar’s cross.
United came close on many occassions with Ronaldo and Giggsy while Rooney striking the ball just few whiskers above the post.United lost its pace and the tired players had to be finally substituted.Saha was taken of for Carrick while Anderson who also had a brilliant game was taken of for Fletcher.
The match was approaching for another Everton draw and a win looking was way too far from hands of United.Until Giggs made a master act.Giggs was awarded a penalty after he fell inside the box after Pienaar stumbled the welsh by his back leg.
Ronaldo took the spot kick and made no errors to score his second of match fairly making a united win.United take another 3 points from this fixtures as they still hang just one point behind the leaders Arsenal.
A few notes on the game:
All this was in absense of Hargreaves, Rio and VDS. United have now started to cope up the game without big players and this makes Fergie to take more options than ever.But i still wonder if we can do with Ronaldo and Rooney.
Saha Carrick substitution was a stroke of genius by Sir Alex. Sending Fletcher in place of Anderson was another mark for United’s victory.Final 10 minutes were the most vital minutes of the game and yes it did pay well
to sort it out in the final 10 minutes and took off the tiring Anderson. It was a stupid foul by Pienaar, but the boy was impressive in his play. Remember this is his first season too. A very very good player, but this wasn’t his day.
Giggs, Carrick,Rooney and Tevez all of them had brilliant match, though a few misses from all it was quite understood.Defense is becoming rock solid. Vidic ,Brown and Evra had an expection presense in the game.No flaws from each of them
Simpson was the new kid in the block.A couple of mistakes in first half which went on improving as game progressed.He ended with an average performance.A still lot to see from him.John O Shea taken off for second half wasn’t
Everton also had a pretty decent game.They have evolved from last 10 to first 10 teams of premier league.Cahill,Pineaar and Lee Carsley also had great contribution to make this one a trilling encounter.Everton still stays the best opponent at OT till now.
