Everton vs Man Utd - Premier League best and worst


Bookmark and Share

By Stephen Donovan

Sunday 20 April 2014

Sunday may be the first time that David Moyes returns to Goodison Park, but when he was in charge of Everton, he gave his Manchester United predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson plenty to think about in a series of entertaining matches, which included several sensational comebacks:


Marouane Fellaini


Last Meeting


It was the opening game of last season and all eyes were Man Utd’s new signing, Robin van Persie. The Dutchman had to be content with a place on the bench as Marouane Fellaini stole the show, delivering arguably his best performance in an Everton shirt. And it was he who scored the only goal, meeting a corner from the right with an unstoppable header.


Best Game


When the two sides met in February 2004, the first half showed few signs of the drama that was to come, as Man Utd raced into a dominant 3-0 lead thanks to two goals from Louis Saha and one from Ruud van Nistelrooy, his 100th in the Premier League.


However, the hosts rocked the defending champions with an amazing comeback to draw level at 3-3. It began when David Unsworth headed home following a corner, before John O’Shea put through his own net. Kevin Kilbane stunned Man Utd with the equaliser, but Everton hearts were broken just a minute from time when van Nistelrooy grabbed the winner in typical fashion.


Most Dramatic Finish


The meeting back in September 2010 appeared to be drifting towards a comfortable Man Utd victory, but they were left shell-shocked by the end as two Everton goals in the space of three minutes of stoppage time gave them a share of the spoils in a 3-3 draw.


The hosts took the lead on 39 minutes through Steven Pienaar, but goals from Darren Fletcher, Nemanja Vidic and Dimitar Berbatov had the Red Devils in cruise control, only for Tim Cahill and Mikel Arteta to spark delirium among the Evertonians.


Biggest Turning Point


Everton were threatening to hand Chelsea the initiative in the race for the title back in April 2007 when they opened up a two goal lead thanks to a deflected shot from Alan Stubbs and a superb strike from the on-loan Manuel Fernandes.


But the game changed on 61 minutes when John O’Shea pulled a goal back, and when Phil Neville scored an own goal to make it 2-2, only one team were going to win. Wayne Rooney and youngster Chris Eagles completed yet another turnaround.
