With a solitary goal by Anthony Gordon, the Toffees won at home and made the Old Trafford side's matchday bitter, while they continue to avoid relegation. 

The arrival of Frank Lampard has given a small boost to the Goodison Park hosts, who are just trying to recover from the disastrous management of Rafa Benitez, who left the club in January due to poor results. 

But his management of the club was so bad that it practically left them very, very close to the relegation places in the Premier League. But today, Lampard managed to neutralize and beat one of the league's powerhouses. 

Everton vs Manchester United: this is how the Red Devils lost

On the one hand, the Red Devils took the field with the best of their arsenal: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Telles, Matic, Fred, Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Sancho, and of course the Portuguese star, Cristiano Ronaldo

For his part, Lampard also put on the pitch the best he has: Pickford, Coleman, Godfrey, Keane, Mykolenko, Gordon, Allan, Delph, Iwobi, Richarlison, and Calvert-Lewin

And the game was intense from the 8th minute, when Keane brought down Telles, resulting in a foul for United, which set up a rehearsed move in which Maguire assisted for Rashford, who shot, but Pickford was alert and cleared for a corner. 

United was on Everton's goal from the start of the game and in the 12th minute, Rashford shot close to the six-yard box and Pickford reacted perfectly to keep out the goal.

And just when everything seemed to indicate that the Red Devils were going to score, in the 27th minute, they got a bucket of cold water: a shot from the edge of the area by Gordon, which hit Maguire, scored De Gea, and conditioned the rest of the match. 

And despite the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo tried to score on several occasions, Pickford was fine and cut off CR7's aspirations, but not only that, he also jeopardized the club's aspirations in general. 

Manchester United's progress to the UEFA Champions League has been complicated

It was incredible to see how neither Sancho, Rashford nor Bruno Fernandez, let alone Cristiano Ronaldo managed to score against a club that is in 17th place in the Premier League

And with this defeat, United is left with 51 points, three places away from the UEFA Champions League qualification places, just in week 32 of the 38-week EPL. 

Thus, the team that was once one of the most dominant in the Champions League sees its chance to be part of the most prestigious club tournament on the European continent slipping away.

Can United recapture the glory they have lost since Sir Alex Ferguson left the dugout?
