Everton defeated Manchester United by 1-0 to extend their lead over the rival to points here at Old Trafford.
Bryan Oviedo’s late strike ensured it was not a happy reunion for David Moyes against his former club. His goal marked a first Everton win at Old Trafford for 21 years as the Roberto Martinez revolution continues.
As for Everton, they stay in fifth place but extend their lead over Manchester United to five points. Having already beaten Chelsea this season, Roberto Martinez’s side are certainly showing that they are capable of beating anyone on their day and some might say they should be considered as top four contenders.
That result means that Manchester United’s 12-game unbeaten run in all competitions is brought to an abrupt halt and David Moyes’ side now trail Premier League leaders Arsenal by 12 points. With Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool all set for three points, it has not been a good day for the Red Devils.
