Tim Howard falls in first game against Man. United

A valiant effort by Tim Howard, playing his first game against Manchester United since being transferred to Everton, was spoiled Sunday by a needless foul that led to a penalty kick and a 2-1 Manchester United victory.

Howard made big stops on Brazilian Anderson, Carlos Tevez and Wayne Rooney late in the game before South African Steven Pienaar fouled Ryan Giggs in the penalty area and Cristiano Ronaldo scored the winning goal in the 88th minute.

The win was United's ninth in a row in EPL play this season.

The loss snapped the Toffees' 13-game unbeaten streak.
