Following Wednesday's announcement of the 2013/14 Barclays Premier League fixtures, evertonfc.com looks back at another memorable opening day encounter...

Everton 1-1 Manchester United - 8 August 1999

Treble winners Manchester United were given a thorough examination by Walter Smith’s Everton as they began their title defence with a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park.

It looked as if it would be business as usual for Sir Alex Ferguson’s team as Dwight Yorke opened the scoring in the seventh minute. The striker teamed up with Andy Cole to sprint through on goal and beat Paul Gerrard.

Both sides wasted chances but it was the Blues who grabbed a crucial goal in the closing stages. With four minutes remaining, defender Jaap Stam inadvertently headed past Mark Bosnich, earning the hosts a well-deserved share of the spoils.
