Gary Lineker reacts to performances of Jordan Pickford and Dominic Calvert-Lewin as Everton draw

The Toffees earned a share of the spoils from their game with Manchester United.

Pickford should have perhaps done better with United’s goal, scored by Bruno Fernandes, but he made a wonderful save late on to deny the Red Devils.

Lineker scored 30 goals in 41 outings for Everton, spending the 1985/86 campaign at Goodison Park.

He knows what it takes to adhere himself to the club’s supporters and took to Twitter after today’s game.

He was also delighted for the club’s goalkeeper, Pickford who had a bittersweet afternoon against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team.

The England man is paid £100,000-a-week and has come in for some criticism this season.

 

Nonetheless, he showed his worth during the afternoon by earning his team a point at the end of the game.

Lineker believed his performance highlighted the ups and downs of the life of a goalkeeper.

Everton missed the opportunity to edge into the top half of the Premier League.

As a result, they are still one of several clubs who can realistically challenge for a place in Europe next season.

Carlo Ancelotti will know that a run of victories is required and he will be keen to return to winning ways quickly.

Pickford and Calvert-Lewin are both vitally important to the Italian and he will be hoping they continue their form as the season edges to a close.
