Premier League, Manchester United 3-3 Everton: Records broken
Everton snatched a dramatic 3-3 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Premier League. Dominic Calvert-Lewin secured a point for Everton in the fifth minute of stoppage time. With this result, United dropped two crucial points in a match where they dominated the proceedings. Everton moved up to sixth for the moment. Here we present the records broken.
Everton come back twice to deny United
Marcus Rashford's brilliant cross to find Edinson Cavani, gave United the lead in the 24th minute. At the stroke of half-time, Bruno Fernandes' sumptuous shot found the top corner. In the second half, Everton stunned United in a three-minute spell with Doucoure scoring one and setting up another for James Rodriguez. Scott McTominay restored United's lead but Everton refused to buckle down.
Notable individual stats scripted by the Everton players
Everton forward Calvert-Lewin netted his 13th Premier League goal of the season. This is more than any other English player in the competition. Abdoulaye Doucoure has scored three goals against United in the Premier League. This is his best return. Rodriguez has now been directly involved in eight Premier League goals for Everton this season (G5 A3).
Bruno Fernandes achieves these feats
United's talisman Fernandes has now scored 13 league goals this season, more than any other mid-fielder in Europe's top five leagues. He is involved in 22 Premier League goals this season (G13 A9). In 37 career Premier League games, Fernandes has registered 21 goals and 16 assists. He also has 18 goals in 33 games across competitions this season.
Defensive lapses cost United once again
United have conceded 18 goals in 12 home league games this season. Notably, this is one more than they did in the whole of last season at Old Trafford. United have conceded 30 goals already this season in the league. This is now the most conceded by a side placed in the top 10. The Red Devils suffered their sixth draw of the season.
Unwanted records scripted by United
This was just the fourth time United led a Premier League home game by at least two goals and failed to win. Everton have been responsible for the past two occasions (also 4-4 in April 2012). This was also the second time in Premier League history where United led a home game by 2+ goals at half-time and failed to win.
