Goals from Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial send Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side through to the Carabao Cup Semi-Final
Man United as they often do away from home, started brightly as Everton struggled to deal with the quick, incisive passing from the front players. Edinson Cavani having the best of the chances as he forced a couple of good saves from the Everton number one.
The home side began to have a foothold in the tie after the half-hour mark. Gylfi Sigurðsson saw his effort blocked from close range as he evaded a few challenges on his way into the United 18 yard-box.
Everton were the more dominant side in the first 20 minutes of the second half but were unable to make their period of possession count with United goalkeeper, Dean Henderson not forced into making a single save in the second half.
Most of the half’s action came late in the day as the visitors finally made the breakthrough with 88 minutes on the clock through Edison Cavani’s neat touch and finish which found the bottom right hand corner of the Everton net.
Then in the fifth additional minute of added time, substitute Anthony Martial made it 2-0 with a cool finish after receiving the ball from fellow sub Marcus Rashford, who looked lively when he came on.
With that victory, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side go through to the Carabao Cup semi-final where they will either face Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City or Brentford. Everton will look to pick themselves up ahead of a busy next few days in the Premier League with a place in the top four to protect.
