Monday Recap 

Weather forced a late change in venue as Monday's Division One match was moved to Everton's Finch Farm complex and was played behind closed doors, per the hosts:

Both clubs provided details of their respective starting lineups ahead of kick-off:

The Toffees started much the brighter in blustery conditions and were rewarded just after the half-hour when Holgate headed Everton ahead from Kieran Dowell's excellent cross.

The Red Devils were positive in response and Joe Riley fired over the bar as he looked for the equaliser ahead of half-time.

Devonte Redmond then rippled the side-netting after an Adnan Januzaj corner, but United were still trailing when the break came.

The visitors knew they could close the gap at the top of Division One to a single point with a victory, and they started the second half on the front foot, looking to get themselves back into the game.

However, they failed to find an opening and Dyson put the game to bed 10 minutes from time as he nodded home at the far post from Sam Byrne's delivery.

The Red Devils could find no way back in and they fell to just their second defeat of the season following a feisty affair, per United:

Everton have now gone five games unbeaten in the league and face Chelsea next up, while United will look to bounce back when they visit Norwich City on Feb. 8.

At St George's Park the goalscoring action all came in the second half as Derby's Shaquille McDonald headed a late equaliser to force a point following Luka Belic's opener.
