“Erik Ten Hag has to Start him in every match after his masterclass performance against Everton. He was what they have been looking for. They could have won lot of matches if not for Erik Utd started him on time”-Fans concluded that Man United star must now start every game after 8/10 “masterclass” v Everton.

Manchester United secured a crucial victory in their pursuit of Champions League qualification by defeating Everton 2-0 at Old Trafford.

This marked the Red Devils’ eighth clean sheet of the season, placing them joint-third in the Premier League for the most clean sheets. However, fortune favored them, as Everton squandered several opportunities with poor finishing. Despite Everton’s 23 attempts on goal, only Sheffield United have faced more shots than Erik ten Hag’s side this season.

Nevertheless, one player stood out with an impressive 8/10 performance, according to The Manchester Evening News. Jonny Evans, who returned to Manchester United on a free transfer from Leicester City in the summer, exceeded expectations given his limited pre-season involvement, starting only once.

Amid defensive injuries to Lisandro Martinez and absences of Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia, the 36-year-old Evans has emerged as a reliable presence at the back. Football analyst Liam Canning acknowledged Evans’ impact, highlighting his proactive defending and experience.

In his 18th Premier League appearance of the season, Evans demonstrated his defensive prowess once again, contributing to United’s clean sheet against Everton. His performance was pivotal in thwarting Everton’s attacking threats, showcasing his ability to deal with crosses, set pieces, and shots on goal.

Described as a “masterclass” by United Stand presenter Beth Tucker, Evans’ contribution extended beyond defense. He displayed composure in possession, evidenced by his key pass, 88% pass accuracy, 65 touches, and successful dribble, as per Sofascore.

Overall, Evans’ signing has proven to be invaluable for Ten Hag’s side, and his consistent performances warrant a more permanent place in the starting lineup. Without the Northern Irish defender, United’s Champions League aspirations would be significantly jeopardized.
