Manchester United made it twenty-one home points dropped this season, out of a possible 48. That must be a real concern for Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho, who has been trying his best to change our results for the better.
Last night was just another abject display from pretty much everyone out on the field, and once again, the talented Marcus Rashford struggled throughout.
After a simply stunning debut season, I guess the pressure upon the 19-year-old’s shoulders must just be a bit too much to take right now, and that’s hugely disappointing.
Every time he touched the ball against Everton last night, it resulted in possession being needlessly coughed up, either through a poor pass or because he’s too lightweight to shirk off a tackle.
It really was disappointing. You can see how desperate he is to succeed, but this season has definitely been a real wake-up call for the striker. I’ve still got no doubts that he will come good for us in the end, but we may not see him back to his best until next season; that’s what I think anyway.
The Manchester United fans gave him plenty of pelters on social media after last night’s game – most of it was probably justified. We’ve compiled some of the best ones below.

Again. Marcus Rashford was way less than average. One thing for sure is that Martial is better than him.

I'm by no meams writing him off completely but can we please just accept that at this stage Rashford simply isn't that good?

Might be harsh on him, but under José's "system" only defensive players have thrived. Pogba, Mkhitaryan, Martial, Rashford all regressed.

Rashford was a lion last season, this season he is a donkey

Am I the only one who thinks Rashford has been ridiculously poor, and his decision making has been atrocious at best. #mufc

Rashford & Lingard were poor yesterday so was Miki when he came on. He's back to the way he started season.
