United’s reserves extended their current unbeaten record in all competitions (home and away) to eight games and moved back into second place in the Premier Reserve League North with a thoroughly convincing 2-0 victory against their Everton counterparts at Moss Lane this evening. Early goals from Danny Drinkwater – officially his first of the season – and Ritchie de Laet – his first for United – stunned Everton, and by half-time it really should have been four or five, Zoran Tošić hitting the bar twice amongst a number of other chances for the Reds. The visitors came into the game late on with first-team striker James Vaughan looking dangerous, but the result of the match was never really in doubt.

    Unfortunately I couldn’t get to the game this evening, and I was wondering how Welbeck played?

    Obviously he’s been demoted to the reserves for game time whilst Macheda enjoys his spell with the first team, and I’m interested in how he will respond. I’m sure he’d much rather be the one travelling back from Portugal, so I would expect him to be trying to put in some serious performances to remind Sir Alex that Macheda’s not the only teen striking sensation at the club.

    Also, were Tosic’s efforts from free kicks?

    Welbeck played very well, was involved in the first goal, went close himself on a couple of occasions. No question marks over his attitude.

    Tosic’s efforts weren’t freekicks – the two in the first half were close range strikes with his right foot. He also hit the post in the second half with a left-footed effort from distance.

    Finally Tosic plays the full 90 and impresses!
    waiting to see both MArtin and Tosic play in the First XI!

    Still no news re James Chester. Nothing on the website about an injury. He played v Sunderland on his return from Peterborough, then nothing. What’s the score?

    Chester is seemingly out for the season with what I think’s a knee injury.
