Manchester, April 22
Steven Pienaar grabbed a late equalizer as Everton salvaged a stunning 4-4 draw with Manchester United on Sunday to halt the defending championís title charge.
Wayne Rooney equalized against his former club with a header in the 41st after Nikica Jelavicís 33rd-minute opener, and Danny Welbeck and Nani scored after halftime to put United 3-1 up.
Marouane Fellaini made it 3-2 with a 67th-minute volley, but United seemed to be cruising to victory when Rooney scored his second in the 69th.
But in a dramatic finish, Jelavic pulled a goal back in the 83rd and Pienaar leveled with an 85th-minute finish.
The result left United six points clear at the top of the Premier League, with second-place City visiting Wolverhampton Wanderers later Sunday.
