@AkeemAdeola: "@GoalUK Why aren't you rating the managers?"
@Isszzooh: "Breaking news. Moyes sacked.@GoalUK let that be your update tomorrow morning #MoyesOut"
@Skiilz4u: "@GoalUK Moyes has to go, I expect him to get sacked next week. Destroyed the champions with his pathetic tactics and coaching staff."
As a team they were bobbins, but how were they as individuals? Check out how Jon Birchall rated Manchester United's players in the link below.
Player Ratings: Everton 2-0 Manchester United
I still can’t believe David Moyes said Manchester United have an “outside chance” of finishing in the top four before today’s game. Crazy stuff. After today’s result it’s not even mathematically possible, never mind what it would have taken for the teams above them to slip up. If ever there was a SMH moment, this is it. #SMH.
Jon Birchall reports from Goodison Park: “The unhappiest of homecomings for David Moyes, who has seen his side destroyed here at Goodison Park. United were systematically outplayed in every way possible by Roberto Martinez's men, who have settled any argument as to who the worst Premier League side in the north west is. Last season's champions, who won their 20th title a year ago this coming Tuesday, are in absolute free fall. Whether Moyes is entrusted to stop it is now rightly up for debate.”
Opta: “70 - Today's result means Manchester United are going to finish with fewer than 70 points for the first time since 1990-91. Decline.”
Okay, NOW we’ve had Manchester United’s best chance of the game. I repeat: what took so long?! Chris Smalling leaps high six yards out to header a Wayne Rooney cross wide of the target. This is grim for the visitors.
We’ll have FOUR added minutes at Goodison Park.
Best chance of the game for Manchester United. What took so long?! Wayne Rooney adjusts his feet in time to get a shot away at goal before James McCarthy rushes back with a slide tackle, only for Tim Howard to stay on his feet and palm away. The save is greeted with a huge ROOOAAARR from the Everton faithful.
Darren Fletcher is fuming. The midfielder stands his ground after Kevin Mirallas knocks the ball around him and then, instead of trying to run past, charges straight into the Scot and falls to ground to win a free kick. It comes to nothing, though.
Another chance! Steven Naismith forces David de Gea to palm wide after a brilliantly executed counter led by Seamus Coleman. They were four on three for one moment!
Chance! Steven Naismith only has David de Gea to beat after a good Kevin Mirallas run and pass down the right, but he steers the ball wide of the post. Really should have scored.
Aaaaaand here is Danny Welbeck - on in the place of Shinji Kagawa. Manchester United now have Javier Hernandez as a lone striker with Juan Mata playing behind him, Wayne Rooney to the left and Welbeck to the right.
Less than 20 minutes to go and it looks as though Danny Welbeck will enter the fray for Manchester United. He could replace any one of current attackers, to be honest.
Change now for Everton. Leon Osman replaces the lively Ross Barkley.
Jon Birchall reports from Goodison Park: “Manchester United are losing their heads here as Wayne Rooney goes flying in with his studs up on James McCarthy. David Moyes has looked to change things with a double substitution but Everton are in complete control.”
Uh oh. Wayne Rooney goes in for a ROONEY CLASSIC - a both feet off the ground challenge to win the ball but probably catch the man as well - on James McCarthy. The midfielder is hobbling off the pitch rather gingerly and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he had to come off.
Opta: “Javier Hernandez is the only player in Premier League history to score 10+ goals away from home as a substitute.”
Indeed he does make some changes. Off go Nani and Jonny Evans, on come Antonio Valencia and Javier Hernandez. It’s now Chris Smalling and Phil Jones at centre-back, with Valencia slotting in at right-back.
