    MAKING PROGRESS

    Marcus Rashford has held a positive chat with Boris Johnson just hours after starring in the 3-1 win over Everton.

    The Manchester United superstar has been at loggerheads with the government over his fight to feed hungry children.

    MPs sparked fury last month after they voted down a plan to extend free school meals through the school holidays.

    But it didn't deter the 23-year-old from continuing his campaign as he rallied the country together with thousands of cafes and restaurants offering free dinners.

    Following weeks of political pressure, Boris Johnson promised no child would go hungry this Christmas.

    And it appears Rashford has made even further progress in his campaign.

    Taking to Twitter, he wrote: “Just had a great conversation with the Prime Minister now is the time for collaboration.”

    'RYAN CAN'T RESIST'

    Ryan Giggs’s brother Rhodri has labelled him a sex addict who cannot resist women on nights out.

    Rhodri, 43, whose ex-wife Natasha had a secret eight-year affair with the former Manchester United ace, told a sports podcast: “Everyone has a weakness.

    “Ryan’s was that when he goes out, he has to sleep with women.”

    But asked if he despised his brother, Rhodri told The Michael Anthony Show podcast: “No, I don’t. I feel sorry for him

    “He’s had the most amazing career but it’s just tarnished and that’s not down to me. It’s down to his own philandering. I was faithful.”

    Rhodri was speaking a month before Giggs, 46, was arrested over a bust-up with girlfriend Kate Greville.

    STRIKING RESEMBLANCE

    Chelsea legend Joe Cole has likened Manchester United's Bruno Fernandes to Blues boss Frank Lampard.

    Fernandes produced a wonderful display in today's win at Goodison Park.

    Speaking to BT after the game, Cole said: “This (goal) is like Lampard in his prime the way he timed it. If you look at Luke Shaw he could have delivered it first time but he didn’t.

    “He waits and waits and waits and Fernandes just reads it, gets in between the centre halves.

    “He’s got that instinct from midfield where he is always going to score goals because his timing is excellent and his finishing is top drawer as well.”

    ODE PALS ACT

    Real Madrid are “optimistic” of signing Erling Haaland – thanks to secret weapon Martin Odegaard.

    Borussia Dortmund are battling to keep Manchester United target Jadon Sancho and strike-partner Haaland for the long term.

    But the chance of joining fellow Norwegian starlet and close friend Odegaard at the Bernabeu makes Real an especially attractive option for Haaland.

    Spanish newspaper AS also suggest agent Mino Raiola has a “gentleman's agreement” with Dortmund that Haaland can leave the German giants in 2022 if he wants to.

    And all the time the 20-year-old goalscoring feats become more remarkable.

    GONE TOO SOUN

    Graeme Sounessclaims he quit management due to modern players’ bad attitudes – just like those at Manchester United.

    The pundit, 67, enjoyed a stellar playing career before entering the dugout in 1986.

    He told Sky Sports: “Don’t talk to me about the modern player, their attitude and responsibilities they seem to shy away from today.

    “That [Man Utd] dressing room needs to have a close look at itself, collectively and individually, as to why they’re in this situation.

    “There are some very good players in that dressing room: stand up and be counted now.

    “For yourself first and foremost, then your families, then for your manager and football clubs.

    “That’s why I stopped being a manager a long time ago, you can’t demand it from them anymore. Instead, you’re asking them.

    “I think at the end of every sentence you end up having to say ‘Please’ today. ‘Please can you run a bit harder, please can you be more aggressive, please can you give everything?’

    “They were givens and that should be a given. You’re at a big club at United, you never play easy games, every game is a cup final for the opposition.

    “From the outside looking in, a lot of them are in their armchairs, looking to blame other people.”

    'ABSOLUTE SHAMBLES'

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer let rip in a furious, Sir Alex Ferguson-esque rant over his side's fixture pile-up just moments after watching his side beat Everton.

    A clearly seething Solskjaer told BT Sport: “We were set up to fail. The kick-off time set us up to fail.

    “We have been to Turkey, played loads of games this season already, we got back Thursday morning and we are playing Saturday lunchtime.

    “It's an absolute shambles. These boys deserve better.

    “Luke Shaw has got injured because of it. It's a hamstring which might be a long one.

    “And Marcus Rashford might be struggling.”

    CAV SOME OF THAT

    Edinson Cavani scored his first Manchester United goal today's win over the Toffees – and had selfless team-mate Bruno Fernandes to thank for it.

    The Toffees were caught on the break as they pushed for a late equaliser.

    The pitch opened up and United were able to unleash a four-on-two attack.

    Fernandes could have fired at goal to complete his hat-trick, but unselfishly squared for Cavani.

    The Uruguayan, 33, made no mistake as he coolly fired past Jordan Pickford in the home goal.

    It was Cavani's first goal for his new club having gone goalless in his opening four games.

    JOR DROPPING

    Jordan Pickford escaped punishment AGAIN after a wild kick on Harry Maguire in the box during Everton's game against Manchester United.

    The Toffees stopper recently dodged trouble after ending Virgil van Dijk's season in the Merseyside derby and fans are furious that he got away with one again.

    Former referee turned BT Sport pundit Peter Walton said: “I thought it was foul and it should have been looked at again for a penalty kick.”

    Pickford spilled the ball, and as he attempted to clear he connected with the England centre-back with a flailing leg.

    Replays show Maguire with his hand on the Three Lions keeper as he tried to catch the high ball but contact appeared minimal.

    The England pair clashed after the incident.

    And despite calls for a United penalty, nothing was given.

    PASS THE BUCK

    Manchester United made 20 passes before Bruno Fernandes levelled the scoring against Everton this afternoon. Not bad, eh?

    OVER TO BRU

    Never fear, Bruno Fernandes is here.

    The Portuguese superstar has scored TWICE to give United the lead over Everton.

    FERD IT HERE FIRST

    Will Manchester United be able to give Rio Ferdinand the birthday present that he wants?

    Let's wait and see, but the Red Devils are already 1-0 down against Everton.

    Bernard scored in the 19th minute to pile the pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

    GO GET BELE

    Manchester United chiefs have fixed up a 'bargain' £45million fee with Barcelona for Ousmane Dembele, according to reports.

    Barca's £124m buy from Borussia Dortmund could be flogged on the cheap to get Nou Camp chiefs out of their financial mess.

    The Catalonians must cut £171m from their budget immediately to avoid hitting the wall.

    Debts are said to be racking up for Barca – and that could pay off for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's United.

    They see winger Dembele as a cheap alternative to Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

    The Germans want £110m for the England international.

    ‘MANN UNITED

    Manchester United are eyeing up Julian Nagelsmann as a potential replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, according to reports.

    That is despite the Red Devils thumping his RB Leipzig side 5-0 in the Champions League just last month.

    Solskjaer may insist he is the right man for the job but is under increasing pressure to keep his position following a run of poor results and performances.

    That included a shock 2-1 defeat to Istanbul Basaksehir as United's defence was heavily criticised again.

    SunSport understands Man Utd have not made any contact with any potential replacement at this stage.

    However, ESPN report the Old Trafford club are considering Nagelsmann as an option.

Meanwhile, their 16 wins at Goodison Park is the joint-most away wins for a club at a specific venue in the competition (Man Utd also 16 at Villa Park).
    • Everton are looking to avoid losing three consecutive Premier League games for the first time since December 2019, while manager Carlo Ancelotti hasn’t lost three league games in a row since November 2006 with AC Milan.
    • After a run of scoring in 17 consecutive games, netting 39 goals in the process, Manchester United have failed to score in their last two Premier League matches (0-0 vs Chelsea, 0-1 vs Arsenal). They last failed to score in three consecutive league games in February.
