Manchester United held by Rafael Benitez’s Everton

Manchester United suffered another major setback in this year’s Premier League campaign sharing spoils with Everton at Old Trafford.

In the early kickoff of the day, the host took the lead through Anthony Martial who scored his first goal since February to the delight of the many Manchester United fans who were in attendance.

In what was to be an extension of the Champions League win against Villarreal, the celebration was cut short in the second half when Andros Townsend low driving shot past the host net.

Townsend mocked Cristiano Ronaldo’s celebration style with the Portuguese making no impact after stepping in the 57th minute following his last minute winning goal in the Champions League group stages.

The draw piles more pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the tactics he will use to challenge for the league tittle this season.

Manchester United have tough fixtures ahead including one with Liverpool and Manchester City. They will also face Leicester and Tottenham after the International break.

The draw leaves both Manchester United and Everton with 14 points standing at position three and four respectively in the table.
