Manchester United vs Everton: What a start and end to the Premier League match between Manchester United and Everton. It started with Antonio Valencia scoring a beauty in the first four minutes of the game to give the Red Devils a 1-0 lead after which Ronald Koeman’s side looked for an equaliser till the end. The visitors looked strong with Wayne Rooney on their side, who came off in the 82nd minute, a decision that proved disastrous for Everton as the Old Trafford side ended up scoring three goals in a span of seven minutes. This included a composed finish by Henrikh Mkhitaryan, an expected Romelu Lukaku goal and a penalty kick goal by Anthony Martial in the 90th minute. Jose Mourinho’s side shone in the absence of Paul Pogba, who is going to be out with an injury for the next few week.

Ronald Koeman: But after United we have four home games – Sunderland in the cup, Apollon Limassol in the Europa, Bournemouth and Burnley. It’s really important that we come through that period with a lot of wins. It’s a big miss that we don’t have Romelu Lukaku anymore but then everybody knows that.
Jose Mourinho: The number of appearances, the number of goals, the number of trophies. I think clearly he (Wayne Rooney) is one of the most important players in the history of Manchester United. I think the stadium will show him the respect he deserves, I hope, before and after the match, not during the match.
