Green­wood sal­vages draw for United against Ever­ton

The Punch - - SPORTS -

Manch­ester United sub­sti­tute Ma­son Green­wood scored a 77th-minute equaliser to deny Dun­can Ferguson a sec­ond suc­ces­sive win as Ever­ton’s in­terim man­ager.

Ever­ton looked set for backto-back league vic­to­ries for the first time since April when Vic­tor Lin­de­lof turned Leighton Baines’ first-half cor­ner into his own goal, with VAR rul­ing David de Gea had not been im­peded by Do­minic Calvert-lewin as they jumped at the near post.

It was fit­ting that 18-year-old Green­wood should come off the bench to res­cue a point with a fine shot from the edge of the area, given that this game marked the 4,000th con­sec­u­tive game in which United have named an acad­emy player in their match­day squad.
