Grade A s**t-housing from Townsend
Everton winger Andros Townsend has trolled Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo in fantastic fashion as he copied the Portugal international’s iconic celebration.
Townsend ran towards the Everton fans after completing a stunning counter-attacking move, which started from Demarai Gary pressing high and winning the ball back before a passage of play led to Townsend slotting the ball past David De Gea.
With Old Trafford silenced, Townsend used the opportunity to mock the 36-year-old and in perfect s**t-housing fashion, mimicked the ‘Siiuuuuuu’ celebration to the delight of the Toffee’s supporters and the disgust of the Manchester United faithful.

It was the home side who had taken the lead through an Anthony Martial deflected curling effort in the first-half but in truth, it has been the away side who have looked the more dangerous side.
Utilising the counter-attack to perfect effect, they troubled a United side without key man Harry Maguire in defence and have had to resort to bringing both Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho off the bench to spark life into the side.
Rafael Benitez’s side aren’t without their own injury problems, with the likes of Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin missing amongst a host of others and look good value for a point, or should they go on to score another.
At the time of writing there is 10 minutes left as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men look to press forward to find a winner and stop them falling further behind in the title race.
