A stunning bicycle kick from Alejandro Garnacho helped Manchester United beat Everton in the Premier League at Goodison Park on Sunday at tea time match.

Goodison Park was a cauldron as the infuriated Toffees returned to action for the first time since Sean Dyche’s side were docked 10 points for breaching financial rules.

Everton responded well after Garnacho’s stunner and came close to leveling before the break, with Kobbie Mainoo, 18, capping a mightily impressive first Premier League start with a crucial goal-line clearance.

It was a fantastic start to a run of three vital away games on the trot for the Red Devils and a frustrating afternoon for wounded Everton.

Boos greeted everything Premier League related on Sunday, with a protest march followed by banners inside the ground as well as thousands of cards featuring the league’s logo above the word ‘corrupt’.

They were held aloft before kick-off as chants against the league filled the air. That protest was repeated in the 10th minute, but by that point, the hosts were behind to a United goal that will live long in the memory.

Rashford collected a diagonal pass and played the ball through to Diogo Dalot, whose right-footed cross would have swung away from danger were it not for Garnacho’s ingenuity and flawless technique.

There were cheers when referee John Brooks showed Martial a yellow card for diving shortly after the second half got underway, but the mood soon swung.

VAR Chris Kavanagh reviewed former United captain Ashley Young’s challenge on the forward and advised Brooks to check the incident on the pitchside monitor.

The referee eventually pointed to the spot and Rashford stepped up to beat England team-mate Jordan Pickford in the 56th minute.

The match ended 3-0 in favor of the visitors, with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial also on the scoresheet, placing United in sixth position and six points off the top of the table above of star studied Newcastle United in the English Premier League table while Everton remains 19th while Erik ten Hag’s fifth win in six Premier League consecutive games.

Elsewhere, Aston Villa came from behind to overcome the challenge of Tottenham 2-1 in north London.

That result lifts Unai Emery’s team above Spurs and into fourth place.
