EPL: Everton hold Man Utd at Old Trafford

Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw by Everton at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

Anthony Martial gave United the lead in the first half with his seventh goal against Everton.

United failed to capitalise on the lead in the second half and got caught in their own web after a poorly delivered corner kick led to a lightning counter five minutes after the hour mark.

Andros Townsend handed United the sucker punch with the equaliser from the quick break, beating David De Gea with a right-footed low drive in the 65th minute.

Everton thought they'd stolen the win late in the game with a tap in by Yeri Mina but a quick VAR check showed he was offside,

Both sides failed to top the table and the points were shared leaving the home side second and the visitors third on the log pending other weekend results.

Manchester United have won just two of their last seven home league games (D2 L3), having won eight of their 10 at Old Trafford prior to this run (D1 L1).
