Manchester United battled back from a goal down to defeat Everton 2-1 as Cristiano Ronaldo achieved another moment of history.
The Red Devils were humbled 6-3 by Manchester City last Sunday and started this match at Goodison Park in inauspicious fashion, Alex Iwobi scoring after just five minutes after Casemiro lost the ball.
United levelled through Antony, who struck his third goal in three Premier League appearances after being played in by Anthony Martial. The France striker went off shortly afterwards with an injury, meaning Ronaldo was summoned from the bench.
The Portugal great made a telling impact, sweeping a low finish beneath Jordan Pickford following Casemiro's pass for his 700th career club goal.
Marcus Rashford had a third goal disallowed in the second half but United withstood an aerial onslaught from Everton to claim the three points.

Everton vs. Manchester United result
5 mins — Iwobi (assist: Gray)
15 mins — Antony (assist: Martial)
44 mins — Ronaldo (assist: Casemiro)
This match was pushed back to 7 p.m. local time as United had been in UEFA Europa League action in Cyprus on Thursday. That day, they found themselves a goal behind after dominating the first half before going on to win, and they left themselves with work to do once more on Merseyside.
Casemiro, starting his first league match, was robbed of the ball by Amadou Onana in his own half, Demarai Gray laid it off to Iwobi, and the former Arsenal man curled a lovely finish out of David de Gea's reach from the edge of the box after only five minutes.
United responded well to their early set-back and were level 10 minutes later. Onana was this time guilty of dawdling in possession and the visitors countered, with Martial feeding Antony to sweep home in style.
Martial's outing ended soon afterwards as he trudged off the field and down the tunnel, apparently injured again. Ronaldo replaced him, and promptly made his mark, racing through and firing beneath Pickford after Casemiro tackled Iwobi and fed his former Real Madrid team-mate.
Everton had conceded the fewest goals of any Premier League side before this match, but they had also only scored seven times in their first eight games. There was no lack of endeavour from Frank Lampard's men, but creating clear-cut chances against a resolute United defence proved difficult, as crosses from deep seemed their only viable tactic.
Rashford stole in front of Iwobi, hurdled a James Tarkowski challenge and found a way around Pickford to score what he thought was the killer goal, but a VAR review deemed the ball had struck his arm after deflecting off Tarkowski in the build-up.
If the decision was harsh, it didn't shake United's focus. Onana had a half-chance with a header and Pickford went up for some late corners, but the Red Devils held firm to go fifth in the table.
Ronaldo shows enduring class after more Martial woe
Martial had been in brilliant form in preseason before injury restricted him to just 45 minutes of football in United's opening six league games of 2022/23. He got two goals off the bench against City and another at Omonia, earning a starting spot here and duly assisting Antony for the equaliser. A new injury, this time with his back, ended his involvement.
Martial's misfortune was Ronaldo's gain. The Portugal veteran took his chance with aplomb and generally led the United line well, winning a good header for psg jersey price what should have been a third from Rashford. Was it enough to convince Ten Hag to put him back in the first XI? It probably should be.
Casemiro takes charge after early jitters
Ten Hag had suggested last week that Casemiro needed time to adjust to life in the Premier League. Losing the ball to go a goal down after just five minutes of your full debut in the competition wasn't a great way to prove the United manager wrong.
It marked a peculiar first half for Casemiro, in which it sometimes felt like he was intentionally giving the ball away only to show how good he is at winning it back. That was never more apparent in the lead-up to Ronaldo's goal, when Casemiro made a mess of a pass, quickly tackled Iwobi and played a perfectly weighted throughball.
His positioning in the second half was consistently strong, though, and it was part of the reason Everton were forced wide to attempt hopeful crosses that yielded hardly any clear chances. It's hard to see him being left out of the starting line-up much longer.
United show mettle to finish gruelling week
The humiliation of the 6-3 at Man City, the long trip and surprisingly tricky game in Cyprus, and a physical battle at a wet and cold Goodison Park made this a trying week for United.
Ten Hag was pleased enough with how it ended, particularly after they fell behind for the third time in seven days. "The reaction of the team [to going behind] was good. That was one of our aims: to deal better with set-backs," Ten Hag told BT Sport. "Especially first half, they were pressing well.
"It's difficult here. Seven games unbeaten, difficult to score against them… and we scored two. So, that's good."
For Unit psg jersey 2020 ed to see off Ev psg jersey neymar jr black erton's aerial assault in the second half with little more than a scare from an Onana header was testament to their strong defending, especially with Raphael Varane only fit enough for a late cameo. They should have made more of their chances to score a third and kill the game off — Rashford was unfortunate to see his disallowed — but this, cliched as it may sound, was a test of character for Ten Hag's men. They passed.

FULLTIME: United battle to a 2-1 victory over Everton! Iwobi gave the hosts the lead but first-half goals from Antony and Cristiano Ronaldo got the Red Devils on top. Rashford had a third disallowed, and the visitors had t messi psg kit o survive a bit of an aerial onslaught, but the three points are theirs.
90+3 mins: Pickford goes up for an Everton corner and Varane just nods the ball out of the Toffees keeper's reach! What a moment that could have been. The home side have two more corners, United hold firm… and it's all over!
90+1 mins: De Gea makes a crucial save! Was it a psg shirt manufacturer shot or a cross from Garner? It's hard to say, but De Gea leapt to his left to claw the ball away as Onana looked to get a head on it. The corner ends up bouncing off a blue shirt and behind for a goal kick. Ten Hag is bringing on Raphael Varane for these closing moments, with Antony making way.
90 mins: Half a chance for Onana! Gray gets the ball in from the right and Onana rises relatively unchallenged, but he can't direct the header on target. We're into four minutes of injury time here…
89 mins: Everton are battling hard but United's defence is sound and they keep the ball for a couple of minutes. Iwobi then launches another cross from deep into the box but Lindelof, again, is there to head away. McNeil then tries a delivery from almost the same square of turf, and De Gea catches.
86 mins: Scott McTominay, on as a sub, goes into the book for catching Gray. Pickford launches the free-kick forward but Onana's header drifts out for a goal kick.
84 mins: That was unfortunate for Rashford, who couldn't really do much about the ball bouncing up and touching his arm. Considering Gianluca Scamacca had a goal allowed for West Ham against Fulham today in similar circumstances, it makes the decision a bit of a harsh one. Still, it's certainly given the home crowd a lift for these closing minutes.
81 mins: GOAL FOR UNITED — no! It's disallowed! Rashford thought he had scored United's third but a VAR check has ruled the ball struck his arm in the build-up as he hurdled a challenge from Tarkowski. The score remains 2-1 to the visitors.
78 mins: United have really struggled with their passing in this half and it's giving the Everton crowd some belief, although the home side are still finding it tough to create chances. Garner's first impact for Everton is a sore one for Fernandes as he stands on the toe of his old team-mate.
74 mins: Half a chance for Eriksen, who is teed up by Ronaldo but blasts over the bar with his left foot. Rashford then tries his luck with a half-volley but doesn't catch it right. We're about to see Calvert-Lewin for the hosts, along with James Garner, the former United midfielder.
72 mins: Onana gets his head on a corner but it's too high. At the other end, Fernandes and Rashford combine but the latter's cross is cut out by Pickford.
70 mins: It's been pretty scrappy this half as the rain has got heavier. United keep giving the ball away but they're restricting Everton to largely hopeful crosses. Ten Hag will certainly want his side to find a third goal to make things a little more comfortable.
66 mins: Eriksen's free-kick was a dangerous one, but Martinez just couldn't reach it. United then break after some more Everton pressure but Coleman makes a timely intervention to cut out Rashford's cross towards Ronaldo. The corner comes to nothing. Lampard makes his first change, taking off Gordon for Dwight McNeil.
62 mins: Another Everton cross from the left is volleyed back towards the middle by Iwobi, but there's no blue shirt to meet it. Gordon is now going into the book for a heavy challenge on Fernandes, who was attacking down the left. That means a one-game ban for the Everton youngster — it's his fifth yellow card of the season.
57 mins: Great battling from Gray down the left but Maupay can't get a head on his cross. Everton are just starting to put some pressure on here — will we see Dominic Calvert-Lewin before long?
54 mins: Shaw joins in a United attack down the left and, after Rashford is tackled, he sprints back to muscle Iwobi off the ball. Good work from the left-back there.
52 mins: Casemiro lines up a shot from the edge of the box… and it's nowhere near the goal.
45 mins: We're back underway at Goodison Park.
HALFTIME: United take a 2-1 lead into the break, having come from behind to lead for the second time this week. Iwobi's wonderful opener was cancelled out by Antony's third goal in three league games, before substitute Ronaldo struck goal number 700 of his club career.
45 +2 mins: Gray fires in a cross from the right but it's straight into De Gea's grasp (that all came from another Casemiro errant pass, by the way). That signals the end of the half.
44 mins: UNITED TAKE THE LEAD THROUGH CRISTIANO RONALDO! My word, Casemiro has had an eventful half! He loses the ball to Iwobi then wins it straight back and arrows a pass into the path of Ronaldo. The forward sprints into the box and drills left-footed below Pickford. That was a ruthless combination between the former Real Madrid team-mates.
Watch Cristiano Ronaldo score his 700th club goal (UK):
42 mins: What a chance for Casemiro! Rashford's cross from the left splits the Everton defence and Casemiro only has to nod it into the net, and he puts it wide! That's a dreadful miss from the Brazilian.
41 mins: A loose pass from Dalot gives Everton a chance, but it comes to nothing. United then break forward, Fernandes finds Ronaldo, who cuts in from the right and lets fly… but it's a tame effort that Pickford saves easily.
36 mins: Fernandes has the ball in the net… but the offside flag is up. Ronaldo had strayed beyond the last man in the build-up. Everton are still living dangerously: if Ronaldo had left that pass from Rashford for its intended target, Fernandes, the United psg jersey 22/23 No.8 would have been clean through.
27 mins: An early change for United as Cristiano Ronaldo comes on for Martial, who walks slowly from the pitch and has headed straight down the tunnel. That's a real shame for a player who was red hot in preseason only to get injured in August.
21 mins: Chance for Martial! Fernandes beats the offside trap and squares the ball towards the penalty spot. Martial and Antony seem to get in each other's way before the former spins into space only for Pickford to close down the angle and block his attempt. Everton are under pressure here.
19 mins: Good save, Pickford! Gueye loses the ball again and Eriksen tries his luck left-footed from the edge of the box, but the Everton keeper parries well.
15 mins: GOAL FOR MANCHESTER UNITED! It's Antony again! This time, it's Gueye who loses the ball in the centre circle and the Red Devils pounce. Fernandes finds Martial, who plays a throughball into the path of Antony, and the Brazilian places a left-foot finish out of Pickford's reach.

9 mins: United are seeking a quick response but Everton are defending well, with every challenge met by a huge cheer from the home fans. For the fourth time in five games in all competitions, Ten Hag's men have conceded first.
5 mins: GOAL FOR EVERTON! What a strike from Alex Iwobi! Casemiro is dispossessed by Onana in his own half and Gray breaks towards the box. He lays is off to Iwobi, who takes a touch and curls a lovely finish out of the reach of De Gea. What a start for Everton!

3 mins: An early chance on the break for Everton, but Gordon's cross is way, way too deep. There's then a chance for Rashford to make some headway in the Toffees' box, but he's shepherded away by Conor Coady.
KO: It's go at Goodison Park!
5 mins to KO: We're almost ready for the off. Can this game match the excitement of Arsenal vs. Liverpool? Let's hope so…
20 mins to KO: Ten Hag said his players had lacked belief in their thrashing by Man City, and Goodison Park perhaps isn' lionel messi psg shirts t the best place for them to start rebuilding confidence: the Red Devils have only won three times here in their most recent 10 league visits. They have also been 4-0 down at halftime in two away league matches this season alone. They lost 3-0 here in 2015, and 4-0 in April 2019.

35 mins to KO: Ten Hag's changes are of little surprise: Malacia has been substituted at halftime in each of United's previous two games, while Martial and Rashford came off the bench to rescue a win at Omonia in the Europa League on Thursday. The bigger question is what sort of impact Casemiro will have at the heart of midfield, and whether Christian Eriksen and Bruno Fernandes can recapture some form.
United have made four changes from the starting XI against Man City: Luke Shaw, Victor Lindelof, Casemiro and Anthony Martial are in for Tyrell Malacia, Raphael Varane, Scott McTominay and Jadon Sancho. Cristiano Ronaldo is on the bench again.
Everton are largely as expected, with Anthony Gordon back in the attack and Dwight McNeil dropping out. Dominic Calvert-Lewin is on the bench and could make his first appearance of the season.
100 mins to KO: United were destroyed by Manchester City in the derby last weekend but managed to score three goals of their own at the Etihad Stadium, something no visiting team has done in the top flight since February. They will need a little attacking sparkle today against Frank Lampard's Everton, who have only conceded seven goals in 2022/23, the best record of anyone in the division.
120 mins to KO: Manchester United are back in the UK and back in Premier League action against an Everton side who have, somehow, become one of the best defensive units in the business.
Everton vs. Manchester United lineups
In a huge boost for Everton, striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin could make his first appearance of the season on Sunday having recovered from a knee injury. He starts the game on the bench.
Defenders Yerry Mina (ankle) and Mason Holgate (knee) are still out, as are Nathan Patterson (ankle), Ben Godfrey (leg fracture) and Andros Townsend (knee). Anthony Gordon was recalled in place of Dwight McNeil, while former United midfielder James Garner is a substitute.

Raphael Varane was only passed fit enough for the bench for United, where he joins Cristiano Ronaldo.

Everton vs. Manchester United betting odds
United are favourites for the victory here but not by a significant degree. After all, Lampard has made Everton tough to beat in recent weeks, and Calvert-Lewin's possible return will be a huge boost to a relatively goal-shy attack.
Given United are returning from European exploits and have looked shaky in defence in the past week, backing a score draw may not be a bad idea.
