- Antonio Valencia scored with a stunning first-time strike from 18 yards to give Manchester United the lead
- Everton came close to levelling through Wayne Rooney after 47 minutes but he fired straight at David de Gea
- Ashley Williams gave the ball away cheaply to allow Romelu Lukaku to find Henrikh Mkhitaryan for clincher
- Everton fell apart thereafter as Romelu Lukaku pounced to make it 3-0 before an Anthony Martial penalty
It is very rare that Wayne Rooney came away with nothing from Old Trafford. Financially, professionally, it is fair to say he did well there.
Yesterday, he had to be content with the warmth of the reception on his return. If Rooney got what he deserved from this game as a Manchester United legend, as an Evertonian, he arguably did not.
His team were sunk by a wonderful goal from Antonio Valencia, and then a catastrophic three late on from Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial from the penalty spot which plunged them into the bottom three.
