However, it was the Toffees who opened the scoring five minutes into the match when Super Eagles star Alex Iwobi scored with a superb strike from outside the box to give Everton an early 1-0 lead at the match.
But Ten Hag’s men would find an answer later after a brilliant shot from Antony in the 15th minute to even things out at Goodison.
United then grew in the game and continued to dominate with the best opportunities coming their way.
However, Erik ten Hag had to make a tactical change in the 29th minute with Anthony Martial assisting Antony’s men to equalize, leaving way for Cristiano Ronaldo.
The substitute will then complete the first-half comeback after being brought on by Casemiro in the 44th minute to give the Red Devils a 2-1 lead.
Ronaldo’s goal in the first half now means he has taken his European club football career goals to an incredible 700.
The Portuguese striker’s goal would prove the final action in the first half as United went into half-time with a slim but deserved lead.
The second half resumed and United continued to dominate proceedings as they pushed for a third.
However, after a number of chances, the Red Devils thought they had finally put an end to the game in the 80th minute after a brilliant performance from Marcus Rashford.
But the 24-year-old’s shot was ruled out by VAR after a qualifier handball.
In the end, Erik Ten Hag’s men cruised to a deserved 2-1 win at Goodison Park, while Frank Lampard’s men came up short against the Red Devils on Sunday night.
