Ronald Koeman has stated on Twitter that Everton earned a “well deserved point” against Manchester United at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon.

The Dutchman was also boastful that the Toffees maintained their unbeaten home record this season, thanks to a late Leighton Baines penalty against United.

Jose Mourinho’s side had taken the lead on Merseyside in the first half when Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s strike crossed the line in bizarre fashion after hitting the crossbar and the post.

But former Toffees midfielder Marouane Fellaini conceded a penalty moments after his 85th-minute arrival, which was duly dispatched by Baines.

Former Southampton boss Koeman was clearly delighted with the point as he posted this message on his personal Twitter account on Sunday evening.

The point against United means Everton sit in eighth place in the Premier League table on 20 points from 14 games.

The Merseyside club have played seven league games on home soil this term, drawing three and winning four.

However, Koeman’s side have been beaten on Merseyside this season, when Championship outfit Norwich inflicted a 2-0 defeat on them in the EFL Cup in September.

Everton will now travel to Vicarage Road on Saturday to take on Watford, before they host title chasers Arsenal at Goodison Park three days later.
