SManchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was frustrated by the way his team blew the victory against Everton after conceding with the last kick of the match.

 

Just days after beating nine-man Southampton 9-0, the Red Devils were on their way to another victory at Old Trafford after recovering from a poor start to the second half of the season.

 

United went into the break with a two-goal lead thanks to a header from Edinson Cavani and a sublime effort from Bruno Fernandes, only for Abdoulaye Doucoure and James Rodríguez to draw level for Everton seven minutes after the restart.

 

Scott McTominay put the hosts ahead again, only for Dominic Calvert-Lewin to react faster when Lucas Digne’s injury-time free throw was flicked beyond De Gea to earn the Toffees a 3-3 draw.

 

“Well of course when you’re in the 94th minute and you’re winning the match, I think it feels worse when you concede in the last minute,” Solskjaer said.

“The first five minutes of the second half, of course, were difficult to take, but the rest of the second half we played good football and we should have been out of sight, really.

“Soccer is about putting the ball in one net and keeping it out of the other, and we can’t. We couldn’t keep it out.

 

“That’s what it cost us because we played very, very well.”

 

The result means that United remains second with 45 points losing the opportunity to overtake rivals Manchester City who currently tops the Premier League table with 47 points and two games in hand.
