Dominic Calvert-Lewin secured a dramatic level for Everton within the fifth minute of stoppage time as they twice got here from behind to carry Manchester United in a six-goal thriller at Previous Trafford.
On the 63rd anniversary of the Munich air catastrophe, Scott McTominay’s header appeared to have sealed a victory that may have taken United degree on factors with Manchester Metropolis on the prime of the Premier League.
Nonetheless, after that they had already responded fantastically to falling two behind earlier than half-time on Saturday, Everton refused to buckle.
And, as United grew more and more determined, Calvert-Lewin took benefit of weak defending from a Lucas Digne free-kick to stab in from shut vary.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s facet solely had themselves accountable for failing to safe most factors. Wonderful first-half efforts from Edinson Cavani and Bruno Fernandes ought to have been the prelude to a snug second interval.
However goalkeeper David de Gea’s mistake gifted Abdoulaye Doucoure a purpose 4 minutes after the restart and, on the guests’ subsequent assault, James Rodriguez rifled dwelling the equaliser.
Fernandes’ sensible effort in useless
Given the poignancy of the day, it was becoming one of many 4 academy graduates within the United line-up ought to play a big position within the opener.
Marcus Rashford has represented the Previous Trafford membership in one of the best ways attainable off the sphere throughout lockdown but it surely ought to by no means be forgotten what a superb participant the 23-year-old ahead is.
His cross, from the suitable facet of the field to the far submit, dropped completely over Michael Keane for Cavani, who had used all his sport intelligence to provide himself the house required to complete.
Fernandes’ very good second introduced again reminiscences of Eric Cantona’s audacious chip towards Sunderland in 1996 – the Portugal midfielder taking his time, after Tom Davies had misinterpret his intentions, earlier than lifting the ball over Robin Olsen from the sting of the world, although the Everton keeper was solely a few yards off his line.
From his seat within the administrators’ field, Sir Alex Ferguson will need to have been impressed. And the character United confirmed to answer Everton’s fightback after the break would little doubt have happy their former supervisor too, though questions might be requested of Olsen, who didn’t maintain out McTominay’s header from Luke Shaw’s deep free-kick.
Sadly for Ferguson, the ending was paying homage to a 4-4 draw between these two groups at this floor in 2012.
Extra to observe.
