Manchester United had a solid victory against Everton at Goodison Park, and though the game was unspectacular for long periods, it was a deserved, hard-fought victory for the Red Devils. After their humiliating defeat at the hands of their rivals Manchester City at home, they needed a positive result against Everton, which they managed thanks to a solitary goal from Javier Hernandez, whose eye for goal can see him develop into a superb player for United in the future.
Though Sir Alex Ferguson would have been pleased with the victory, the scars of the game against City will remain and will only be removed if they can win the Premiership title ahead of Manchester City, who are in rampant form. The Red Devils are five points behind title leaders Manchester City but with a lot of games to go, the Premiership title is still very attainable for United.
The January transfer window will be important for Manchester United as they will look to strengthen their team in order to challenge for the title. City did expose United's weaknesses, but the Red Devils can still have the last laugh if they do improve, and new signings could play a huge role in deciding the title race.
