Super Eagles forward, Alex Iwobi played a substitute role for Everton in their 3-3 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The Premier League clash saw the Red Devils lose a two-goal lead early in the second half, but later scored to go ahead before a another late equaliser denied them all three points.

Edinson Cavani and Bruno Fernandes put the hosts in the lead before halftime while quick second-half goals by Doucouré and Rodríguez leveled both sides, before Mctominay netted what could have been the winner on 70 minutes.

Everton continued to battle to take home at least a point as Iwobi was brought on for the Toffees in the 75th minute, but it was Dominic Calvert-Lewin who finally bagged a leveller on 95 minutes.
