Bryan Oviedo's 85th-minute strike gave Everton a famous 1-0 win against Manchester United at Old Trafford this evening.

The Costa Rican struck late on to give the Blues their first win away to United for 21 years.

Shinji Kagawa had a good chance for United after 20 minutes, but Tim Howard did well to come off his line to close the angle down quickly inside the area.

The Blues struggled to gain hold of possession, but Romelu Lukaku wasted a promising counter-attack when his low cross was easily cut out by Nemanja Vidic with men over at the far post.
