Andros Townsend equalized for Everton as they caused one of the surprising football scores of the weekend in the Premier League. The pressure increased on Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after an indifferent start to the season. Anthony Martial started the game while Cristiano Ronaldo was named on the bench. The former opened the scoring with a brilliant finish. They were then caught out with a brilliant counter-attack by the visitors with Townsend finishing expertly beyond David de Gea.

Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: “We got hit on one break that cost us and we lacked that cutting edge to get the important second goal. We made a couple of decisions that cost us. We had players behind the ball when the ball was delivered and we should have dealt with it. We need to work on it because we are facing more and more opponents who allow us to have possession.”
Everton boss Rafa Benitez: “I’m really pleased because to come here and perform the way we did, the chances we had, the way we defended against a very good team, we have to be really proud of the players and everyone.”
