Club legend: Man United have a major weakness

Everton defender Michael Keane has revealed that he is remaining positive despite the Toffees hard start to the Premier League campaign.

To rub salt into the wounds, Romelu Lukaku, who joined United from Everton for 75 million pounds ($101.85 million) in July, made it 3-0, appearing to enjoy kicking his old side when they were down. "We didn't score the goal and after a personal mistake it was 2-0".

The final scoreline flattered United but it was still another disappointing result for Everton, who slipped into the bottom three. Seeking a goal to get back into the match, they instead conceded a further three to be handed their fourth consecutive loss.

Koeman said his side were "afraid" and lacking confidence in the early stages at Old Trafford but that he was encouraged by the way they responded, especially after a awful Europa League display away in Italy to Atalanta on Thursday. Lukaku struck in the 89th minute and a handball by Morgan Schneiderlin allowed Anthony Martial to slot in a penalty in the second minute of stoppage time.

"Every manager in life has doubts", Koeman told reporters. "This is normal. Of course I ask myself the question 'Why?' Why?" Shaw is returning to fitness after recovering from an injury and Rojo is a few months away from playing again, after suffering an injury at the end of last season.

"This coming Wednesday we start the Carabao Cup, a new name for a competition in which we are the defending champions".

The 23-year-old hopes Jose Mourinho's men continue with their impressive run of three home wins with 12 goals scored and no goals conceded as the season goes by.

Then, in trying to throw these players onto the pitch at the same time, the result has been a congested attack in which creative players have nobody to create opportunities for. But David Luiz's dismissal in the 87th minute for a high, sliding challenge on Sead Kolasinac came too late for Arsenal to produce a victor.

"The game was not as easy as the score indicates, but I honestly think that we deserved the victory".

"If we had pulled back to 1-1 it would have been a different game", he said. "We were ultra-dominant against a team that played with five and four, I think we played phenomenal in the first half hour".

"Overall, first it was important at least not to lose today and you could feel that in the team".
