Manchester United’s clash with Everton on Saturday night was not without drama.
Having thrashed nine-man Southampton by a Premier League record-equalling 9-0 scoreline on Tuesday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side left Old Trafford on Saturday evening reeling from a late gut punch.

After Abdoulaye Doucoure and James Rodriguez scored to cancel out Edinson Cavani’s header and Bruno Fernandes’ exquisite effort, Scott McTominay looked to have steered United to victory.
But Lucas Digne’s free-kick deep in stoppage time was flicked on and Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored with the last kick of the game to secure Everton a 3-3 draw at the death.
The goal sparked mad celebrations from the visitors, while United players unsuccessfully appealed for offside.
Among the celebrations, it appears Everton ace Ben Godfrey could not contain himself as it looks like he SWORE at the United players!
After embracing Calvert-Lewin, Godfrey turned and appeared to shout ‘f*** off’ in the direction of the annoyed Red Devils stars.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted he was frustrated with the way United blew victory against Everton after conceding with the last kick of the ball.
“Well, of course when you’re in the 94th minute and you’re winning the game I think it feels worse, when you concede in the last minute,” Solskjaer said.
“The first five minutes of the second half, of course, they were hard to take but the rest of the second half we played some good football and we should have been out of sight, really.
“Football is about getting the ball into one net and keeping it out of the other and we didn’t manage to do that. We didn’t manage to keep it out.
“That’s what cost us because we played some very, very good stuff.
“You know, you can sit and you can talk about the good performance or the domination of possession and chances we had, but still we come away with only one point.”
