Jose Mourinho’s team visited the Goodison Park last evening, as the Red Devils were looking to improve their current form and not fall further behind in the race for the Premier League title, or at least for the European competition.

Ronald Koeman’s side, on the other hand, was keen to take the 3 points at home, and he made a couple of adjustments on his starting squad in order to do so, sending Ross Barkley to the bench for the first time since early October.

Mourinho made some changes as well, sending Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Michael Carrick into the starting lineup, and his team was in control of both the game and the scoreline for most of the match, but some late mistakes made them fall short once again of a positive result.

After a wonder goal from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, thanks to a childish mistake from Maarten Stekelenburg, the Red Devils failed to close the game despite having several opportunities, until a late penalty from former Toffee Marouane Fellaini allowed Everton to level the score and take at least one point at home. So, let’s take a look at the 5 pictures that can sum up this game the best.

So, let’s take a look at the 5 pictures that can sum up this game the best.



Mourinho stays calmed and quiet at Goodison Park

Mourinho had to remain calmed through most of the game after yet another suspension, and he knows he can’t keep behaving like a spoiled child for now on if he doesn’t want to keep losing money and credibility from media, players and the fans.

Carrick is back

Michael Carrick was once again Mourinho’s choice for the starting spot over Fellaini, and the move definitely paid off, as the captain had an outstanding game at Goodison Park, showing once again that he’s the right guy for the job

Zlatan scores an easy one

Maarten Stekelenburg practically gifted a score to the talented Swedish striker, whose shot rebounded off the crossbar and bounced into the net despite Gareth Barry’s huge effort to take the ball out.

It was the 42nd minute and Manchester United was in control of possession of the ball, and it looked like Mourinho’s squad was quite comfortable on the pitch.

Fellaini screws up again

The Belgian midfielder entered the pitch just 5 minutes before the end of the game, but that didn’t stop him from making an impact, as he gave away a point to his former team while taking 2 from his current side by committing a silly foul on Idrissa Gueye inside the box.

De Gea frustrated

The Spaniard did everything he could to get another clean sheet, and he was very close to stopping that last minute penalty kick, but his team failed one more time and they now fall 14 points behind Antonio Conte’s Chelsea.
