Manchester United could have suffered a defeat at home on Tuesday evening. But it didn't. With Zlatan Ibrahimovic converting a penalty in the 94th minute, the English giants managed to earn a draw against Everton at the Old Trafford in Manchester on Tuesday.

At its home at the Old Trafford, United was in for an early surprise as a 22-minute goal by Phil Jagielka saw it almost crushing to a defeat. With an assist from Ashley Williams, Jagielka pumped in the winning-goal to ensure that United suffered a major blow early in the English Premier League game. But then, minutes before the final whistle, the vastly experienced Zlatan ensured that the United fans returned home with a bit of satisfaction.

In another match, Watford defeated West Bromwich Albion 2-0, with M’Baye Niang scoring in the 13th minute. The lead was extended by Troy Deeney in the 49th minute. Meanwhile, George Boyd lifted Burnley away from the Premier League relegation zone as the Scotland winger sealed a 1-0 home win over Stoke.

In the other game, Leicester defeated Sunderland 2-0.
