Iwobi Effective as Everton draw 1-1 against Manchester United


Alex Iwobi stung the gloves of David De Gea as Everton made one last effort to regain the lead against Manchester United on Sunday, but the Spaniard beat it away to help United hold on for a 1-1 result against Everton at Old Trafford.

Iwobi played all 90 minutes and for the second time under new Boss Duncan Ferguson as the Toffees climb further out of the relegation zone.


A Victor Lindelof own-goal in the 36th minute gave the visitors the lead and United will wait until the 77th minute to have a say in the game.


Substitute Mason Greenwood struck a low drive between several legs and past Jordan Pickford to bring Ole Gunner Solskjaer men level.


But the sides would eventually settle for a draw and Everton remain unbeaten since sacking Marco Silva.


It has been a new lease for Iwobi as well, who at Old Trafford had 39 touches, completed 26 passes, attempted 5 tackles and earned a decent 6.7 rating per whoscored.com.
