LIVERPOOL, England (AP)
Manchester United done a losing start to a Premier League
season on Monday, crashing to a 1-0 better during Everton as Robin van
Persie endured a gloomy debut.
Marouane Fellaini capped an considerable opening by streamer in
a dilemma from former United midfielder Darron Gibson in a 57th
”I don’t consider anybody tonight was deliberation Everton at
all,” Everton manager David Moyes told Sky Sports television. ”A
lot of people forgot Everton aren’t a bad team, and Goodison is a
difficult place to come and win.”
Tom Cleverley came closest to leveling for final season’s runners
up, yet his shot was privileged off a line by Everton defender Phil
Signing Van Persie from Arsenal final week was meant to provide
the additional firepower a 19-time champions need to recover the
Premier League pretension from rivals Manchester City.
But a Netherlands striker, who cost a reported 24 million
pounds ($38 million), unsuccessful to even strike a aim after coming
off a dais in a 68th.
It was a initial time Alex Ferguson’s side has mislaid a league
opener given 2004.
Injuries, though, meant there were usually dual famous defenders
in United’s behind four, with winger Antonio Valencia deployed at
right back, and midfielder Michael Carrick alongside Nemanja Vidic
in a center.
And a fibre of excellent saves by United goalkeeper David de Gea
prevented Everton from being in front by half time.
Fellaini, personification usually behind striker Nikica Jelavic, was the
dominant force in United’s chastisement area.
The Belgium midfielder had already headed over Leighton Baines’
corner before he collected a throw-in and incited into a penalty
area, holding off Carrick, to strike a post from a parsimonious angle.
He incited creator, chesting a round behind for Steven Pienaar to
slice a shot wide, and afterwards knocked down a cranky that Leon Osman
hit on a spin usually for De Gea to bat divided a shot.
De Gea also denied Jelavic, sloping over a long-range header from
Pienaar, and prevented Baines’ deflected giveaway flog unctuous into
the tip corner.
United striker Wayne Rooney had a still night as he noted 10
years given creation his comparison entrance for Everton, attack dual shots
too tighten to goalkeeper Tim Howard, and saying a late first-half
header punched clear.
After a break, Fellaini’s header opposite idea was smashed
against a crossbar by Leon Osman yet his grant was
rewarded with a idea in a 57th.
”Fortunately, a large male (Fellaini) put his conduct where it
hurts and we had something to hang on to,” Jagielka said.
Van Persie’s attainment meant Rooney shifted to a left, yet it
was another new signing, Shinji Kagawa, who done a bigger
impression. The Japan playmaker forced Howard to competition off his line
to retard his run and shot.
And Everton hold on to record usually a fourth home win against
United in 21 Premier League games.
”It’s good to send a Everton fans on a initial day of our
season home with a win and not a doom and dejection we routinely start
with,” Jagielka said.
