Mason Greenwood was on fire as he came as a substitute and scored an equalizer to deny Duncan Ferguson’s side a second successive win in Premier League match on Sunday at Old Trafford.
Victor Lindelof’s own goal from Leighton Baines’ first-half corner gave Everton a lead after VAR determined David de Gea had not been impeded by Dominic Calvert-Lewin as they jumped at the near post.
Everton thought they would get away with another win but Greenwood came in as a substitute and equalized for Manchester United in the 77th minute.
Everton’s fan were delighted in the result so far, chanting praises for Ferguson for his impact after Marco Silva left.
United manager, Ole Gunnar Solsjaer reacted to the result:
We’re disappointed we didn’t get three points. We didn’t have the ideas to win it towards the end. We kept them on the back foot and if any team was going to win it it was us,” he told Sky Sports
“We came back after the disappointment at half time. You shouldn’t concede goals like this at set plays. But it’s a foul. There’s no point me complaining but his arms are over David’s shoulders as he was going to punch it.
“Mason Greenwood is different class in and around the box. You’re not surprised when he scores goals. It’s fitting that it should be an academy player that scores in the 4,000th match [in a row in which Utd have fielded an academy product] and it makes it hard for me to leave him out.
“We’ve always had the DNA, with added players from other top clubs, and that will always be the philosophy here.
“We’re disappointed today but we have a quarter-final in the Carabao Cup to come on Wednesday and I have a big strong squad to choose from.”
The result means United is 6th in Premier League with 25 points while Everton is 16th with 18 points.
Next, United will play against Colchester in Carabao Cup on Wednesday before visiting Watford on 22 December. Everton will welcome Leicester in Carabao Cup on Wednesday before hosting Arsenal on 21 December.
