Everton Saturday held Manchester United to a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford in the English Premier League.

Anthony Martial gave United the lead, netting his first Premier League goal since February a few minutes to the end of the first half. But that was not enough to help United grab all three points.

In the 65th minute, Andros Townsend fired in an equaliser for Everton, forcing United to share points on their home ground.

Mimicking Ronaldo, Townsend did the No. 7’s iconic ‘Siuuu’ celebration at Old Trafford.

Ronaldo, who made his 200th appearance for United, came in from the bench but could not rescue United as he did against Villareal.

Yerry Mina fired in a winner for Everton five minutes to the end of the game, but VAR disallowed the goal for offside.

Though the decision saved United from a home defeat, fans expressed displeasure with the result.

In 7 games so far, United have won 4, drawn 2, and lost one, garnering 14 points to stay third on the EPL table.
