Manchester United 3-1 Everton: Marcus Rashford shines as Man Utd beat Everton in the FA Cup

Manchester United goals
Antony’s goal was his first for Manchester United since he scored in the 2-1 Premier League win over Everton at Goodison Park on 9 October

Marcus Rashford scored for a fifth successive game as Manchester United increased the pressure on Everton boss Frank Lampard with a deserved FA Cup victory at Old Trafford.

Everton were applauded off by their traveling support for showing admirable character, after their side suffered the shock of going behind after just three minutes when Antony turned home Rashford’s far-post cross but had the character to fight back.

Conor Coady rammed home a 13th-minute equalizer when David de Gea calamitously allowed Neal Maupay’s apparently harmless cross to roll though his legs as he appeared to think it was about to hit the outside of his post.

Even after Alex Iwobi was stretchered off in obvious pain after he suffered an ankle injury in a tackle with Tyrell Malacia, Lampard’s players continued to battle hard.

But once some brilliant approach play from Rashford had deceived Coady into turning the forward’s cross into his own net, the visitors’ character alone was not enough.

And after Dominic Calvert-Lewin had a goal ruled out for offside, man-of-the-match Rashford kept his nerve to beat international team-mate Jordan Pickford from the spot deep into injury time.

More to follow.
