English premier league giant, Manchester United were in action against Everton at the Old Trafford in their 23rd game of the season.
The Red devil battled it out with the Toffees in a six goals thriller as the game ended 3 - 3 at full time.
Manchester United were two nil ahead of the Mersey side club at half time, courtesy of goals from Edinson Cavani and Bruno Fernandes scored in the 24th and 45th minutes respectively.
Carlo Ancelloti's led Everton team responded well at the start of the second half as Abdoulaye Doucoure put one back for the Visitor in the 49th minutes to make it two goals to one.
The first goal scorer for Everton, Doucoure provided an assist for James Rodriguez who scored the equalising goal in the 52nd minutes to make it 2 - 2.

This was just the second time in Premier League history Manchester United led a home game by 2+ goals at half-time and failed to win, following a 2-2 draw against West Brom in October 2010.
