Everton v Manchester United: Live coverage of the Premier League clash at Goodison Park

FINAL SCORE: Everton 3 Manchester United 1 The game is up for United and it's their sixth Premier League defeat of the season. Chelsea and Arsenal will be loving this. Everton's first defeat of United since 2005. Dare they dream of fourth spot themselves? They're eighth now... There will be four added minutes... 90min: GOAL EVERTON - Rodwell storms through and ends 20-yard run with a stunning shot into the corner. The gets booked for taking his shirt off. What a substitution...what a pair of substiutions.Everton 3 Manchester United 1. 86min: Osman booked for foul on Rooney - free kick 25 yards out and up steps Rooney and it gets deflected inches wide by Distin - on comes Jack Rodwell for Pienaar for Everton. Corner United - saved by Howard. 84min: Successive United corners as they reach 10 but no attempts on goal. Phil Neville has never played on a winning Everton side against United when his brother's been playing... 82min: As it stands United are not going top of the Premier League. But they have a free-kick that Carrick will take from the left...wasted. I've done it: Everton's Dan Gosling celebrates his goal 81min: Michael Owen on for Valencia - the boyhood Everton fan and ex-Liverpool star is roundly booed. 80min: Saha booked for time wasting. 76min: GOAL EVERTON - Gosling ends the torpor by stabbing home Pienaar's driven cross from six yards. United are losing and London is plunged into gloom - except the immediate areas surrounding Stamford Bridge and The Emirates.Everton 2 Manchester United 1 73min: Pienaar booked for scythe on Evra. 68min: This game is a bit like Michael Owen - a shadow of its former self - Everton are going to bring on Dan Gosling for Bilyaletdinov so now both scorers are off. 65min: United are going to bring on Paul Scholes and Gabriel Obertan in a bid to get the extra points. Arteta, sensing danger, gets booked for a foul on Park. Off go Berbatov and Park. Scholes is on 99 Premier League goals... 54min: Brilliant cross from Rooney glanced a yard wide by Berbatov. 51min: Fletcher fizzes a 20-yarder just wide. 46min: Donovan battles through and is fouled by Brown 25 yards despite not appearing not to touch him. Fletcher gets booked for his protest. This is central and a real chance that Baines balloons over the bar. What a waste as Ian Dury once said. They're out for the second half - will it be as good as the first? HALF-TIME: Everton 1 Manchester United 1. Take a break lads - you've all earned it. 44min: The pace is finally starting to drop as half-time beckons - there will only be one added minute because there have been no breaks here. 40min: Everton's fans sense this may be their day and are making an incredible noise despite the fact that Berbatov is looking fairly sharp for a player who only moves in three-foot circles. Golden goal: Bilyaletdinov celebrates with Pienaar 37min: Baines cross causes chaos in the area and falls to Donovan six yards out but he swings and misses after it bounces off Wes Brown's arm. Bob Latchford would have scored but Evans and Brown look there for the taking in that Red defence. 30min: United corner - cleared but only at the expense of another. Valencia is causing so many problems down the right, it is only a matter of time before he sets up another goal. 25min: Rooney clean through past Howard but Phil Neville just muscles him wide and the ball goes out for corner. Rooney will be gutted by that and the huge cheers that greeted the incident from the home fans. You can't take your eyes off this game for a second. 24min: Great cross from Baines reaches Bilyaletdinov six yards out but he skies it. 22min: Corner Everton - not really cleared and Valencia gives away a 25-yard free kick. Up steps Pienaar - it comes to nothing.   19min: GOAL EVERTON  - Bilyaletdinov hammers home from 25 yards after a layoff from Saha. Stunner and van der Sar did not even move. What a response from Everton and you can hear Arsene Wenger and Carlo Ancelotti sniggering from here.  Everton  1 Manchester United 1. First blood: Dimitar Berbatov strolls away after putting United ahead 16min: GOAL UNITED - Valencia great cross from the right, Distin is beaten and the statuesque Berbatov hammers the ball home from six yards, his ninth of the season, oen behind second top scorers, own goals. Everton 0 Manchester United 1. 13min: Everton's first corner and it looks like Heitinga gets shoved by Rooney but there's no penalty, and second later Saha's 25-yarder in well saved by van der Sar - eventually. Suddenly the sun is out and life is good in Liverpool. 10min: Valencia corner not cleared properly but Fletcher's shot from 18 yards ends up in Anfield. 9min: Just a couple of United corners and little Everton threat. The Toffees alredy seem happy with a draw. 1min: All very tentative with a bit of ping-pong and some tasty tackles. It's all rather incestuous with the Neville brothers in opposition, Everton's Louis Saha and Tim Howard against old club United, Wayne Rooney against an Everton side he started his career with and MIchael Owen, the ex-Liverpool star and Everton-supporting child on the bench for the Reds. Champions Manchester United made four changes as they looked to apply pressureon Chelsea in today's early Barclays Premier League kick-off at Everton.
