United Pip Everton, Stay In Top Four Hunt

Manchester United stayed in the chase for fourth place in the Premier League with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Everton on Saturday.

Anthony Martial scored the only goal of the match as United moved to within one point of the top four in the Premier League table.

Martial struck early in the second period to make it four straight home league wins for Man United as Everton, who remain in the bottom half of the table, lost away for just the second time in the league this season.

Before kick-off, Man United legend Sir Bobby Charlton was present on the pitch as the South Stand at Old Trafford was renamed the ‘Sir Bobby Charlton Stand’ in tribute to the 78-year-old, who made 758 appearances for the club, netting a record 249 goals.

And the current United team made it a memorable day for the legend.
A long punt from Morgan Schneiderlin found Juan Mata in space, the Spaniard found youngster Marcus Rashford who set Anthony Fosu-Mensah free with a clever backheel.
Fosu-Mensah’s centre found Martial, who guide home from close range. It was United’s third straight 1-0 win Premier League and Everton’s fourth straight defeat.
