2 Substitutes who scored in our 3-1 victory over Manchester United in February 2010, Dan Gosling and Jack Rodwell being the players in question.  It was only the second time two Everton substitutes had scored in the same game, but curiously it then happened against in the next home match against Hull City.

2 Premier League goals scored by Swedish international Jesper Blomqvist. Both were headers at the Park End but one was for United in October 1998 and the other for Everton against Sunderland in January 2002.

40 Years since we last scored a league penalty against Manchester United when Joe Royle netted in a 2-0 win at Goodison in September 1972. Since then Kevin Sheedy has missed two – at Old Trafford in 1985 and at Goodison four years later.
