Anthony Martial scored the first goal but Andros Townsend allowed Everton to draw against Manchester United on Saturday in the opening day of the seventh day of the Premier League (1-1). The Englishman even allowed himself to taint Old Trafford fans by celebrating his goal in the style of Cristiano Ronaldo.
He barely saved a goal from Cristiano Ronaldo in Champions League Against Villarreal (2-1), Manchester United did a long time without the Portuguese on Saturday in their Premier League match against Everton.
From the sidelines saw the five-time Golden Ball Anthony Martial score for the Red Devils a few minutes after the end of the first half (1-0, 43). So far everything seems to be going well for the CR7 partners. But the Toffees equalized just after an hour and neither Paul Pogba nor Manchester United, the 7th seed, were able to change the match (1-1).
Ronaldo imitates and gets upset
Shortly before the hour was up, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer finally decided to fire his star man onto the grass at Old Trafford in place of the frustrated Edinson Cavani. Just eight minutes later, Everton equalized when pushing the Mancononians to score a first-half goal.
In a quick counterattack, Demarai Gray won a physical duel against Fred before Scott McTominay fell to release Abdullah Doukuri. Cleverly, the French midfielder sent the ball towards Andros Townsend who calmly adjusted David de Gea (1-1, 65).
The England winger then rushed into the corner to celebrate his goal by imitating Cristiano Ronaldo’s famous celebration. Leap and “SIIII!” Entered a contemporary football legend.
Huge joy for the Toffees which contrasts nicely with the Portuguese’s reaction. CR7 criticized his teammates’ repositioning on these negatives.
Worse, in a corner kick taken out poorly by Manchester’s defense, Yerry Mina thought he was offering the victory to Rafa Benitez’s nationals. But a slight offside denied the Colombian defender and Everton a second goal and a stunning victory at Old Trafford (1-1, 85th place).
Upon arrival, Manchester United still gave way to their rivals at the top of the Premier League with a second game in a row without a win. On the contrary, Everton remains in touch with the best and is temporarily third in the standings behind Liverpool and the Red Devils. The winner of the confrontation between Liverpool and Manchester City (this Sunday at 5.30 pm on RMC Sport 1) will be able to strike.
