Manchester United falls to Everton at Goodison

Manchester United sputtered out of the starting gate in its opening Premier League clash, losing 1-0 in disappointing fashion to a defiant Everton.

United were forced to play Michael Carrick at centre-back, an unenviable way for last year’s runners-up to start the campaign.

Rio Ferdinand, due to chronic injuries, sat in the press box for the match and was unable to aid in his team’s plight.

Marouane Fellaini’s imperious stature came to the vanguard when he towered over Carrick in the 57th minute to head home his team’s first goal of the season.

Playing a peripheral part, Robin Van Persie took his tracksuit off and entered the fray in the 68th minute. The former captain will look to avenge his disappointing 22-minute debut at home next week.

If United’s injury woes, especially in defence, are at all perpetuated the club could find themselves in a dogged tussle for a spot in the top three.

Look for the Old Trafford boys to rebound with ferocity in their forthcoming encounter, which is at home to a Fulham team who travels miserably.

Everton travels to Aston Villa, a fixture in which both teams will fancy their chances. Look for a 1-1 stalemate in this one.
