“The result that helped Man City win the Premier League.”

1NEWS – In Manchester United’s last match in the Premier League stage this season, the Red Devils were held to a 1-1 draw with Everton. But, long before that, The Toffees had very often made it difficult for Man United when they met on the field.

In this regard, we will recall the moment that occurred on April 22, 2012, precisely when Man United was still being coached by Sir Alex Ferguson. Man United were not just hard to beat, they were a formidable club at the time.

Meanwhile, Everton is coached by David Moyes, who has been at Goodison Park since 2002. The Scottish coach has rebuilt a solid team, which brought Everton from the brink of relegation to play regularly on the European stage.

In the last match, the two clubs were only goal difference, and against QPR, the tense match finally belonged to Man City, through Sergio Aguero’s iconic goal in the last minute.
