..... Manchester United comes back twice from behind to beat bottom placed Shelfield United 4-2 @ Old Trafford.

It was a night of rude shock at Goodison Park, in a Merseyside derby as Everton walloped title contender, Liverpool by two goals to nill.

The victory for the Sean Dyche's side was the first in almost fourteen years in a must win situation in their struggle to remain in English Premier League.

With the two nill spanking of Liverpool, Everton is almost securing their top flight future with eight points clear of 18th placed Luton with four matches to go.
However, for the Jurgen Klopp's men, the defeat, spelt doom for their title ambition, leaving Arsenal, three points ahead with superior goal difference and Manchester City, a point behind with two matches in hand to slug it out for top spot.

The Merseyside derby saw the home side dominating proceedings right from the blast of the whistle with Calvert Lewis being the thorn in the flesh of the Liverpool's defense.

Everton could have registered the first goal in 6th minute, when Calvert Lewis was brought down but VAR ruled that the striker was offside, thereby, denying Everton a penalty kick.

In the 27th minute, the homer opened scoring through Jarrad Braithwaite, capitalizing on a poor clearance in the danger zone.

After the break, the Red faded away, allowing Everton to pile pressure on their defense line that eventually crumbled in the 58th minute, Calvert Lewis rose unchallenged at the far post to nod home the second goal.
Meanwhile, Manchester United came back twice from behind to beat bottom placed, Shelfield United by four goals to two at Old Trafford.

Goals from Harry Maguire,  a brace by Bruno Fernandes and R. Hojilund were enough to earn Manchester United victory.
