When Andros Townsend stroked home Everton’s equaliser at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon, the Cristiano Ronaldo celebration in front of the ecstatic Toffees fans was pre-planned.

Thankfully for Townsend, the Portuguese was so busy berating his team-mates that he didn’t see it. Had he done so, the Everton man believes that there was no way he’d have got Ronaldo’s shirt after the game.
