Manchester United v Everton

by Football Reporters 2011 - 2012

Manchester United 4-4 Everton. Battling Everton came back strongly to deny Manchester United victory in a stunning Barclays Premier League match at Old Trafford.
The draw left United six points ahead of closest title rivals Manchester City - with their neighbours playing their game in hand at Wolves later on Sunday.
The two teams play at City's Etihad Stadium on April 30th.
After a quiet opening, Nikica Jelavic produced a clever header from a tight angle to put the visitors in front, but Wayne Rooney nodded in Luis Nani's cross to level before half time.
United seemingly took control as Danny Welbeck thumped in a superb second, then Welbeck turned provider for Nani to neatly chip in.
Everton's Marouane Fellaini rifled in a great finish to make it 3-2, but Rooney's second - his 26th Barclays Premier League goal of the season, and one which put him fourth on United's all-time goalscorer list - seemed to have swung things decisively in United's favour.
Yet there was time for a final twist in the final 10 minutes as Jelavic hammered in his second, then Steven Pienaar pounced to slot home to make it 4-4. Do you have a view on the game? Leave a wink below to get your opinion heard.
