Manchester United were held to a 1-1 at Everton as as Marouane Fellaini's second half leveler ended United's six-match winning run.

Darren Fletcher fired United ahead in the 22nd minute as he controlled a pass from Ryan Giggs, evaded Joleon Lescott and shot through goalkeeper Tim Howard's legs.

Everton back on level terms on 63 minutes when Fellaini headed home a Phil Neville cross past Edwin van der Sar.

Former Everton player Wayne Rooney, who celebrated his 23rd birthday on Friday, was subbed with 19 minutes remaining after he was riled by the home fans.

But the lead only lasted 10 minutes as Shola Ameobi headed in Geremi's free kick to score his second goal of the week.

Richardson handed Sunderland the winner in the 75th minute with a superb free-kick from the edge of the box.

The final whistle was marred by ugly scenes after Sunderland's fans came onto the pitch to celebrate the victory.
