(The African Stand) — Bruno Fernandes scored twice with Edinson Cavani scoring his first goal for the Red Devils as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side return to winning after beating Everton at Goodison Park in the Premier League.

Fernandes brace and a late Cavani goal secured Manchester United a 3-1 comeback win over Everton to ease the pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Solskjaer headed to Goodison Park under heavy pressure, with United having lost their last two games and reports growing that the club had approached Mauricio Pochettino.

Things got off to a bad start for United as Everton – needing a result of their own after a poor run – took their lead through a fine Bernard goal after 19 minutes.

However, United rallied as Fernandes headed home a Luke Shaw cross six minutes later. The Portuguese then added his second 32 minutes in as his cross floated in after Marcus Rashford failed to get a touch on it.

United had chances to seal the victory after the break, but Everton offered little in the way of genuine chances – and Fernandes turned provider deep into injury time as Cavani secured three points with his first goal for the club.

The result means Solskjaer will almost certainly hold onto his job heading into the international break
