Manchester United secured a convincing 3-0 victory over Everton at Goodison Park, with a dominant second-half performance after a challenging first 45 minutes.
Four of the Red Devils’ players earned a place in the WhoScored team of the week, thanks to their impressive displays against the Merseyside club.
The result keeps United close to the top four and helps them gain ground on their rivals, as Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur all failed to win.
United’s four representatives in the WhoScored Team Of The Week are not Kobbie Mainoo and Alejandro Garnacho, who did not feature in the match.
Man United Team of the Week Award
Four Manchester United stars made it to the WhoScored team of the week after their 3-0 win over Everton, but Kobbie Mainoo and Alejandro Garnacho were not among them, despite their brilliant performances.
Andre Onana, Diogo Dalot, Bruno Fernandes and Anthony Martial were the four players who received the recognition, which was surprising considering Mainoo’s dominance in the midfield.
Onana was excellent in goal for the Red Devils, making some superb saves and distributing the ball well to the midfielders.
Dalot was the most puzzling choice in the team of the week. The Portuguese defender assisted Garnacho’s stunning goal, but his cross seemed more like a hopeful one than a precise one in the box.
Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes improved his game in the second half and set up Anthony Martial for a superb goal, as the Red Devils beat Everton 3-0.
Martial showed his class and reminded everyone why he is an important player for United, if he can stay fit and healthy.
Manchester United full team of the week, based on WhoScored ratings:
- Andre Onana (Man United) 8.64

Man United’s Key Players
Onana has been a key player for United, but the Cameroonian keeper does not get the recognition he deserves for his displays.
Fernandes, on the other hand, has been underwhelming this season, but he showed his quality in the win over Everton. The Portuguese playmaker was the best player on the pitch and assisted Martial’s goal.
United will need these players to step up in the next month, as they face some tough opponents before the January transfer window opens.
