Manchester United are the Premier League's worst team for dropping points with late goals
Leighton Baines’ 89th-minute penalty sealed a 1-1 draw for Everton against Manchester United, who now lead an unwanted Premier League list.

MANCHESTER UNITED HAVE set a new unwanted best in the Premier League this season, following their 1-1 draw with Everton on Sunday.

Leighton Baines equalised with a penalty in the 89th minute after a foul by Marouane Fellaini to snatch a point for the home side at Goodison Park and condemn United to a sixth draw in nine league matches.

The goal means Jose Mourinho’s side have now dropped seven points from goals conceded in the last 10 minutes of league games this season – more than any other team in England’s top flight.

Watford, Stoke City and Arsenal are the other teams to have punished United late on.

Juan Camilo Zuniga and Troy Deeney scored in the 83rd and 95th minutes to give Watford a 3-1 win after the match was poised at 1-1 at Vicarage Road, while Joe Allen and Olivier Giroud scored respective late equalisers at Old Trafford to force 1-1 draws for Stoke and Arsenal.

The draw means United have closed the gap to fourth-placed Manchester City to nine points, although they have won only twice in the league since August.
