FULL-TIME: MANCHESTER UNITED 1-1 EVERTON
Baines throws his body in the way of a Herrera cross and deflects it out for a corner. The set-piece is sent short and worked back over to the Spaniard, but Gueye is there to cut out the danger with a clever tackle from behind.
Rojo goes close! Once again, Lingard is presented with an opportunity to send in a cross from the right wing, and this time it finds Rojo in front of goal. The centre-back does well to get his head to the ball but can’t guide it towards Robles, as it instead loops over the top of the crossbar.
Lingard cuts into the right-hand side of the Everton box on a great run before skipping past Baines. He then fizzes a really dangerous pass across the face of goal, but there’s nobody there to meet it and the visitors hold on once again
Yet another cross is thumped into the Everton box, where Williams can only clear the ball as far as Rashford. The youngster takes a quick touch before teeing up Mkhitaryan, who tries to set up Ibrahimovic instead of shooting and brings an end to a promising attacking move.
Another opportunity for Fellaini! Pogba
swings a great cross over to the far post, where Robles fumbles the ball under pressure from Ibrahimovic. It bounces out to the edge of the penalty area and finds Fellaini, but the Belgian is closed down by Barry and ends up firing his first-time volley over the top of the crossbar.
Ibrahimovic scores, but it’s ruled out! Herrera picks up the ball just outside of the Everton box and immediately curls a beautiful cross over to Ibrahimovic. The striker pushes his way past his marker before sending a diving header under the body of Robles, but the linesman’s flag is quickly raised for offside.
Fellaini charges into the Everton box as he tries to latch on to a lofted pass fired forward by Mkhitaryan, but Robles reaches it well and is there to cut out the danger at the vital moment.
Pogba hits the crossbar! Young’s cross from the set-piece is much better than last time and finds Pogba in front of goal, but the Frenchman’s glancing header ends up crashing off the woodwork after leaving Robles rooted to the spot.
Yellow Card Gareth Barry
Rashford muscles his way past one tackle over on the left flank before flying down the wing on an impressive run, but he’s clattered into by a cynical shoulder-barge from Barry, resulting in another free-kick for the home side.
Another attempted Labour attack breaks down and allows Everton to counter quickly. Once again, Lukaku plays an important role in the move before cutting inside and picking out Gueye, who is sloppy in possession and brings a promising attack to a disappointing end.
The game gets underway once again and Everton quickly come out on top. They push forward down the left wing through Baines and Lukaku before Garry tries to square a pass over to Tom Davies, but it’s slightly underhit and fails to find the youngster.
Lingard is bundled over from behind whilst battling with Barry and wins United a free-kick in a promising position. Blind steps up and fires a curling cross into the Everton penalty area, but it’s poorly hit and easily headed away by Lukaku.

Daley Blind’s low cross is from the left flank is a poor one and fails to result in a chance on goal, with Romelu Lukaku easily able to blast the ball away from danger and up to the halfway line.
After a patient start to the game from both sides skips past Phil Jagielka and shows excellent pace as he flies into the left-hand side of the Everton box. He heads along the byline before trying to set up Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but the visitors’ captain is just about able to get a foot on the ball to send it out for a corner.
We’re off! Everton get us underway, attacking from right to left.
The two sides are making their way out onto the pitch, with just a few minutes to go until kick-off.
