United hosted a fascinating game in the battle to finish in the Premier League's top four, although the home side would still have been holding hopes of a title challenge.
The Toffees started the game brighter but United got control of the game through two first half goals, including an Eric Cantona-esque strike from Bruno Fernandes on the stroke of half-time.
Carlo Ancelotti's team got level in the first half, thanks in part to some poor keeping from David de Gea, before Scott McTominay's goal looked to have earned all three points for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team.
That was until Calvert-Lewin scored after getting on the end of a free kick late in injury time. Lots of blame was placed at Axel Tuanzebe, for giving away the set piece, and De Gea, for not coming to claim the ball, but Maguire kept Calvert-Lewin, and several others, onside.

This is why Maguire isn't good enough for United. Our captain should be leading the team. No leadership lacks positonal awareness. We've conceded 30 goals in 23 games this season.- BaillyDaBeast :flag_ci: (@beast_bailly) February 7, 2021

Following his part in the goal, late substitute Tuanzebe took to Instagram in defiant response to receiving yet more racist abuse on social media, after he was attacked following the recent loss to Sheffield United.
It is the latest of a growing list of occasions United players have come in for the abhorrent abuse, with Anthony Martial's wife also sharing the messages that she has been sent.
On Saturday night the United boss Solskjaer seemed to give up any hope of catching local rivals and table toppers Manchester City. "We're not talking about winning titles. We've come a long way this team. We shouldn't even be considered as title-chasers," the Norwegian told Sky Sports. "That's one for you [the media] - we've got to be better as a team and let's see where we end up. Going forward, we need to stop conceding easy goals.
"They had three shots that hit between the goals and they scored three goals. It's disappointing. And when it's in the last minute of added time it's very disappointing. I wouldn't blame anyone on the goals but we know we can defend better."
