Everton fans react on Twitter to Fellaini display for Manchester United
By Emma Sanders
Everton fans reacted with amusement on Twitter as former midfielder Marouane Fellaini conceded a penalty against his old side at Goodison Park.
Everton went head-to-head with Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon and recorded a 1-1 draw against their rivals following a second-half comeback.
The Blues have not won since their 2-0 victory against West Ham in October but they avoided defeat when Fellaini came on as an 85th minute substitute to concede a penalty.
Leighton Baines beat David De Gea from the spot to ensure his side came away with an important point from the dramatic encounter in Merseyside.
Everton have been in poor form since suffering a 5-0 thrashing against Chelsea last month which kick-started a period of frustration for the Blues.
They were missing a spark in the first half and despite mounting pressure on the United defence in the second-half, Everton didn’t look like they were going to score until Fellaini gave away the penalty.
The Blues had to use all their substitutions shortly after the hour mark when Seamus Coleman and Yannick Bolasie went off injured in the second-half.
It meant Ross Barkley could not get an appearance and there was very little Koeman could do to change the game in the dying stages as fans became increasingly frustrated but Fellaini came on to spoil the evening for Manchester United.
Here is a selection of the messages on Twitter:
