Lescott reveals Everton squad full of Man Utd 'fans'

Jolean Lescott has revealed Everton's dressing room are dominated by mad Manchester United 'fans'!

"We had just beaten Wigan 4-0 and we all piled into the players' bar to watch what was left of United's game with Aston Villa," said Everton's England centre back.

"For a variety of reasons, we were all cheering for United, and we really were giving it everything.

"You'd got the homegrown lads, for a start, the likes of Tony Hibbert, who is such a Blue that he would get behind anyone who might stop Liverpool winning the title. Then there were others, like myself, who were more concerned about Villa finishing empty handed, to give us a better chance of pipping them for fifth place.

"We were all crowding round the telly, screaming and shouting for United to see them off, but it wasn't exactly going according to plan. I had to leave about five minutes from the end, and I was a bit downcast. United were 2-1 down, and it wasn't looking good.

"Next thing you know, I get a call in the car to say United had not only equalised but also scored a winner in injury time. I was made up. That really rounded off the perfect afternoon."
