Well that brings an end to our live coverage from the Premier League. We're back tomorrow with the remaining six games, including Chelsea vs Manchester City. But until then, it's goodbye.

Ashley Williams will be hanging his head after that. His needless handball hands United a point and just about keeps alive their top four hopes. Everton worked to hard after Phil Jagielka gave them the lead but they couldn't hold on. Heartbreak for them and manager Ronald Koeman.

Full time: Manchester United 1-1 Everton

GOAL! Manchester United 1-1 Everton (Zlatan Ibrahimovic)

Drama at Old Traffiord as Ashley Williams blocks Luke Shaw's shot with his arm, is dismissed and subsequently sent off. Zlatan Ibrahimovic converts the penalty, but there is no time for a winning goal.


Ibrahimovic will be spewing when he sees the replays of his second half goal, and he won't want to see his latest effort on goal back either as he heads over unmarked. United going long ball whenever the opportunity arises.

Full time: Watford 2-0 West Brom

Full time: Burnley 1-0 Stoke

Full time: Leicester 2-0 Sunderland

Replays of that Ibrahimovic 'goal' proving pretty inconclusive it must be said. A dent in the argument for video technology.

Ibrahimovic continues to be a threat in the air, beating Robles to ball but Fellaini fires over the loose ball.

Manchester United denied again as Ander Herrera's cross is headed in by Zlatan Ibrahimovic but the Swede is correctly given offside. The direct route almost works for the hosts.

GOAL! Leicester 2-0 Sunderland (Jamie Vardy)

Everton look very dangerous on the break and after Herrera denies Mirallas, the Belgian forces a corner. Fellaini heads clear and United survive.

Marouane Fellaini has been deployed as a central striker now and he almost levels for Manchester United, scooping the ball wide after turning in the six yard box. Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Luke Shaw being readied.

Red card: Miguel Britos (Watford)

AGAINST THE CROSSBAR! United rattle the woodwork again as Paul Pogba directs Ashley Young's deflected free-kick beyond Robles but only the bar.

GOAL! Leicester 1-0 Sunderland (Islam Slimani)

Paul Pogba replaces Daley Blind for Manchester United. Certainly a statement of intent from Jose Mourinho. Second half underway.

GOAL! Burnley 1-0 Stoke (George Boyd)

GOAL! Watford 2-0 West Brom (Troy Deeney)

Those 7:45pm kick-offs are back underway incidentally. Just one goal from those three games. We could do with some entertainment.

Half time at Old Trafford where Manchester United's long unbeaten Premier League run is under threat. Phil Jagielka has Everton ahead and you have to say they deserve it after a performance full of resilience and adventure in equal measure. Ronald Koeman heading for a third straight win at the Theatre of Dreams.

Phil Jagielka celebrates putting Everton into a first half lead.

United knocking on the door as Ashley Young gets in behind but his cross can't find player in a red shirt.

Half time at the King Power, Vicarage Road and Turf Moor. We go on at Old Trafford however, where the home team are in the ascendancy.

Everton living dangerously now. Robles pulls off a fine save to keep out Blind's free-kick and from the follow-up Ander Herrera hits the cross bar from a tight angle.

Everton looking hot now and Lukaku almost makes it too, cutting inside o the counter but he can't test a ring-rusty De Gea.

GOAL! Manchester United 0-1 Everton (Phil Jagielka)

A goal out of nothing for the Toffees. Ashley Williams flicks on a near-post corner and Phil Jagielka holds off Marco Rojo and with a deft finish finds the net with the outside of his right foot from a tight angle, which goes through the legs of David de Gea.

Picture-book night at Old Trafford.

A bout of Everton pressure followed up with a half chance for United. Ibrahimovic plays through Rashford, but as Robles turns the ball behind with a fine save he is given offside. Mourinho's face lights up. Remember, he has constantly criticised his side's failure to finish teams off this season.

Jesse Lingard shoots hopelessly wide from 20 yards. Not exactly a pulsating start to this game, despite United dominating for long periods.

All Manchester United in the early stages and they should be ahead. The returning Ibrahimovic breaks in behind, beats Mason Holgate but Ashley Williams recovers in time to keep the scores level.

Underway at Old Trafford. We have lift off in each of our Tuesday night games.

GOAL! Watford 1-0 West Bromwich Albion [M'Baye Niang]

Teams on the way out at Old Trafford. Both teams badly need to win tonight, or they can kiss goodbye to a top four spot.

A former Manchester United Champions League winner in the crowd tonight. Edwin van der Sar.

Fancy this might be a common theme at the King Power Stadium.

Will the rest of the season be a cake walk for Leicester?

Ready to get underway in our three 7:45pm kick-offs. We'll have news of all the goals as they go in before attention turns to Old Trafford where Manchester United host Everton. You won't miss a beat here tonight.

The Leicester owner celebrated his birthday this week and has rewarded fans for their recent support during four successive league wins with a cup cake. Nice touch.

No doubt who the microscope is on tonight, with David Moyes having dominated the front, back and comment pages across the country over the last 48 hours. His controversial comments directed towards a female journalist has drawn criticism from many parts of the game and profession, yet he remains the Sunderland manager despite his conduct.

Ankle injury for Wayne Rooney keeps him out of the game at Old Trafford, says Jose Mourinho. The England captain's United career looks like it is fizzling out.

Manchester United's eighth home draw of the season leaves them with much to do in pursuit of a Champions League place. Failure to win tonight would probably end their top four hopes while Everton will go fifth themselves if they can win at Old Trafford. Ronald Koeman has prevailed in each of his last two visits to the 20-time English league champions.

No Wayne Rooney for Manchester United, who is not even on the bench against his former club. Herrera and Ibrahimovic return as expected, but there is no Paul Pogba or Juan Mata.

Everton make two changes from the loss to Liverpool. Matthew Pennington, the goalscorer at Anfield, and Dominic Calvert-Lewin miss out. Kevin Mirallas and Gareth Barry come in.

Team news in from Old Trafford.

Stat time...

Finally, the team sheets have dropped at Turf Moor.

And now from Vicarage Road....

Teams in from the King Power Stadium....

Will we see the reappearance of Luke Shaw tonight?

Teams should be on the way in the next half an hour, but how will each side line up this evening - starting with our featured game Man United vs Everton?

Ander Herrera and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are back from suspension for the hosts, but Juan Mata and Paul Pogba are expected to miss out. Luke Shaw is back in contention after talks with Jose Mourinho.

Everton have no fresh injury problems but already have a lengthy absentee list. Morgan Schneiderlin misses his return to Old Trafford, while Aaron Lennon, James McCarthy, Ramiro Funes Mori and Seamus Coleman are all out.

The 2016-17 Premier League season has firmly reached the home straight and this set of mid-week matches will go a long way to shaping the remainder of the campaign. Tonight we have four games, headlined by Manchester United hosting Everton in a kill or be killed clash in the race for the top four.

At the other end, under fire Sunderland manager David Moyes takes his side to rampant Leicester City who have won four in a row in the Premier League under Craig Shakespeare. Elsewhere, Burnley can all-but extinguish any threat of relegation when they face Stoke, while Watford could do similar when they host West Brom.

All the teams news and build up ahead of the three 7:45pm kick-offs, and the game at Old Trafford from 8pm, on the way.
