Manchester United Fail To Go Top Of Premier League Table


Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw by Everton on Saturday, denying them the chance to move top of the Premier League for at least a few hours.

The Red Devils stopped a three-game losing streak in midweek with a 2-1 Champions League victory over Villarreal.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored the game’s 95th goal, was benched for the Toffees’ visit, with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer citing weariness as the reason.

After a Bruno Fernandes ball, Anthony Martial blasted high into Jordan Pickford’s net to put United ahead in the first half.

Before Andros Townsend capped off a sweeping counter attack in the second half, the Red Devils were unable to add to their lead.

Everton believed they had the game won when Yerry Mina tapped in a cross, but VAR overturned the goal due to offside.

United has a total of 14 points after seven games.
