EPL: Manchester United, Everton share the spoils in 6 goal showpiece

On the 63rd anniversary of the Munich air disaster, Manchester United had hoped to mark the memorial with a much-needed victory. Still, Everton came from behind thrice to earn a point against Manchester United in a six-goal thriller at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Edison Cavani and Bruno Fernandes’s first-half efforts had given the Red Devil’s the lead at the break.

However, after the break, two quick tire goals from Abdoulaye Doucoure and James Rodriguez leveled things up for the visitors. 

Scott McTominay’s 70th-minute header seemed to have sealed a victory that would have taken United level on points with Manchester City at the Premier League’s top. Still, a late goal from Calvert-Lewin ended that dream, leaving the wasteful Manchester United two points behind league leaders and city rivals, Manchester City, who have two games at hand. 

Manchester United will be in action on Tuesday when they host West Ham in the fifth round of the FA Cup before visiting West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League on Sunday, February 14. 

While Everton will entertain Tottenham in the FA on Wednesday (20:15), then proceed to host Fulham in the league on February 14. 

Aston Villa 1 – 0 Arsenal 

Meanwhile, earlier on Saturday, a lone goal victory saw Aston Villa complete a first top-flight double over Arsenal for 28 years.

Ollie Watkins’ goal was the difference as Villa followed up a 3-0 win at Emirates Stadium in November with a narrow victory at Villa Park.

Villa moved up to eighth in the Premier League while Arsenal’s second successive defeat left them 10th.

Both teams will be in action this weekend when Aston Villa visits Brighton on Saturday, and Arsenal hosts Leeds United on Sunday, February 14.


Aston Villa 1 – 0 Arsenal

Burnley 1 – 1 Brighton

Newcastle 3 – 2 Southampton

Fulham 0 – 0 West Ham
