Calvert-Lewin snatches dramatic draw

Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored a dramatic injury-time equaliser to salvage a point for Everton in a remarkable 3-3 draw against Manchester United.

In a pulsating match at Old Trafford, on the 63rd anniversary of the Munich air disaster, United took a two goal lead in the first half but were stunned as the visitors levelled with two goals in the first seven minutes of the second half.


First half

Edinson Cavani showed his class and know-how to dart away from Michael Keane and head United ahead midway through the first half after a pinpoint Marcus Rashford cross.

Bruno Fernandes scored an exquisite goal on the stroke of half time, spectacularly catching Robin Olsen off his line with an audacious dipping strike after he sold Tom Davies with a dummy.

Second half

However, Everton came back after half time a different side and replied with two quick-fire goals.

David de Gea made a critical mistake four minutes after half time to allow the Toffees back into the game, parrying Calvert-Lewin’s effort into the path of Abdoulaye Doucoure who tapped in.

Three minutes later, Everton were level. Doucoure’s pull-back found James Rodriguez in space, and he took one touch and fired a shot into the bottom corner.

Rashford was denied by Olsen as United searched for a winner, before Scott McTominay’s glancing header beat the despairing goalkeeper to put the Red Devils ahead with 20 minutes remaining.

The three points looked destined to head to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, until substitute Axel Tuanzebe gave away a free kick with a minute remaining.

Digne sent a deep free kick into the United box and Michael Keane won the flick-on. Harry Maguire was not in-line with his fellow defenders and helped play Calvert-Lewin onside. The England strike chested the ball down and beat de Gea to the ball with a poked finish.

What it means

United’s title hopes were dealt a serious blow as they dropped two points at Old Trafford. They are now five points behind Man City, having played a game more. Everton are seventh, three points off the top four with two games in hand.


Stats

Man United have now won just one of their last four league games, and taken nine points from their past six games.

Calvert-Lewin scored in consecutive games for the first time since October, taking his tally to 13 in the Premier League.

United have conceded 18 goals in 12 home league games, one more than they did in the whole of last season.

Everton scored with all three of their shots on target.

Luke Shaw has assisted three goals in his past two Premier League games, as many as in his previous 48.
