Everton fans critical of Ronald Koeman and his substitutions in United draw

Everton came so close to taking all three points against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Tuesday night, but in the end they had to settle for a point.

Phil Jagielka’s early goal looked to have given the Toffees a crucial win – and one that would have taken them above their opponents in the Premier League table – but when Ashley Williams was red-carded in injury-time for handling a goal-bound effort, Zlatan Ibrahimovic was on hand to put away the penalty.

Ronald Koeman tweeted after the match that he felt his team were unfortunate not to get the victory, but supporters were less than impressed with his substitutions.

Toffees fans believe that it was too negative to bring on Matthew Pennington in place of Kevin Mirallas, while they also think that the Dutchman needed to utilise the pace of unused substitute Ademola Lookman in order to try and keep the ball in the opposition half.

Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
