Manchester United failed to beat Everton in one of the derbies of the round in the English Premier League. The Red Devils and the Caramels did not win after a goal thriller with 6 goals and a 3: 3 draw, which United can seriously regret.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's players managed to get ahead again in the result through Scott McTominey, who intercepted a header from a direct free kick. In the last seconds of the match, however, Calvert-Lewin took advantage of a misunderstanding in the opponent's defense and with the last touch in the match brought the point for his team.

BEFORE THE DUEL
In the last round, Manchester United showed serious muscles and scored 9 goals at Southampton, which seemed to put an end to the short fall of the club and two consecutive games without a victory in the Premier League, which lost the first place.
Now, however, a more serious test in the face of Everton. The "Caramels" stayed for a long time in the top 4 during the campaign, but they also declined and are currently in 7th place with 4 points less than the 4th - city rival Liverpool (Everton, however, is with 2 matches less).
Carlo Ancelotti's players are on the rise in recent matches, but they will look for victory today no less than the players of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The problem for the "caramels" is that for 4 consecutive games they are without a victory against United, recording 2 defeats and 2 draws.
