Anthony Gordon scored the opening goal in the Everton versus Manchester United game after a wicked deflection from Harry Maguire.

Richarlison got himself into an excellent position, picking out Alex Iwobi who failed to control the ball. Thankfully, it fell to the feet of Gordon who rifled the ball against Maguire, completely wrongfooting David De Gea.
