Martial had forced a handball from former Red Devils midfielder, Morgan Schneiderlin and not yet got on the score sheet, he opted to step up for United.

Romelu Lukaku says his strike for Manchester United against former club Everton was just "another goal", and says his gestures towards Toffees fans was "banter".

United scored three of their four goals after the 80-minute mark against Everton as their opponents committed more players forward late on in search of goals.

"We made a big mistake at 1-0, by Ashley Williams and after that, it was over".

Anthony Martial added salt into the would scoring the fourth goal for United from the penalty spot in added time.

Rooney was given a warm welcome at Old Trafford and left to a standing ovation, but it was Valencia that got fans on their feet as an outstanding half-volley kicked-off a United win that ended 4-0.

Ander Herrera hailed one of his team-mates after Manchester United came through a tough examination to move joint top of the Premier League with an ultimately convincing 4-0 win over Everton. Interestingly, three of Manchester United's goals came towards the end in the final ten minutes of the contest.

Just like in the curtain-raiser to the season - when Arsenal beat Chelsea in the Community Shield - the west London club finished with 10 men.

"We could have scored more I think in the first half".

"The performance was very good, especially in the first 30-35 minutes, it was probably the best performance of the season", said the Portuguese.

That drive from midfield which Paul Pogba has provided to great effect this season was notably missing from the performance but Mata and Mkhitaryan compensated well. It is hard because this is the country with more teams that fight for the title.

While Rooney was given a warm reception, Lukaku was jeered by Everton fans on another bleak day for the Merseyside club that got off to a bad start by conceding in the fourth minute. "It was an intense game between two teams going for it. defensively we were much more stable", he said.
