Twitter Reacts to VAR Taking Centre Stage as Man Utd Slip Up Against Resurgent Everton

​Having overcome Manchester City and Tottenham in their last two matches, it would be the most typical Manchester United thing to then fail to beat Everton at home, right?

Duncan Ferguson seemingly turned his side’s fortunes around with the win over Chelsea, with Everton looking a totally different machine to the one that was constantly faulty and needing repeated maintenance when he masterminded victory over Frank Lampard’s side.

So, what was going to happen at a rainy Old Trafford on Sunday?

Well, this.


Starting off with plenty of the ball and bombing down the left hand side, United were struggling to carve open a resilient Everton side. One player in particular came under strong criticism from the ​United fans, failing to make an, well, decent impact.

​​

​​


​​It was the visitors who began growing into the game, peppering the United goal and pushing themselves further up the pitch in search of the opener.

That goal eventually came, via the shins of Victor Lindelof. 

It was desperately unlucky, but Everton fans didn’t care tuppence.


​​

​​But what’s this?

A review ongoing…

Ah, you see, Dominic Calvert-Lewin definitely fouled David de Gea there. I mean, his hand was on his face. It’ll get disallowed…

But it didn’t. Cue rage.


​​


​​


Nevertheless the goal stood, and ​Everton went into the break in front. 

Could United fight back?

Meh…ish.


​​

​​Fans were calling for change to inject some kind of spark into the performance, with little bite in attack offering next to nothing in the way of trouble to the Everton defence.

One man’s name kept cropping up…


​​


​​

​​They did and, you betcha, he bagged the equaliser.

Drilling a low effort through the legs of Yerry Mina, he brought Old Trafford to life in what was a mostly uninspiring second-half showing from United.

​​Hoping for a grandstand finish, nothing as such transpired.

Everton look a different team since Duncan Ferguson taking charge, with the fight and desire the Toffees players showing in total contrast to the abject outings they produced under Marco Silva.

A draw probably was a fair result, especially considering the controversial opener, but it still remains an excellent result for the Toffees while an equally a disappointing one for the Red Devils.

Same result, different outlooks.

​​Meanwhile…

​​Inconsistent United strike again, while resurgent Everton march on.

Another day in the ​Premier League.
