Everton 0 Manchester United 1 FT
Javier Hernandez scored the only goal of the match in the 17th minute for United. They stay second and put the pressure on rivals City. Everton battled well but could not score or take any chances well. United put last week's 6-1 defeat to rivals City behind them but are not back to their best. Their defence is unstable and athlough they won today, Everton lack strikers and lacked a goal threat throughout the match. If they had faced one of the top six in the EPL, the result would have been different.
