Manchester United have salvaged a 1-all home draw against Everton, as the Red Devils stretch their unbeaten run in the Premier League to 20 matches. 

Everton led 1-nil at the interval when Phil Jagielka found the back of the net with a clever finish, to silence the home crowd at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

The visitors kept their lead into the second half stoppage time but Zlatan Ibrahimovich provided the equalizer from the penalty spot in the dying seconds of the game after Ashley Williams received the marching orders for a handball inside the box.

With the tie, Ronald Koeman’s men remain seventh in the standings as they miss the chance to go above United on goal difference in the table.
