Manchester United Blow Everton Away

Romelu LukakuWayne Rooney’s Old Trafford return finished in disappointment as Antonio Valencia’s sublime strike set Manchester United on course for a 4-0 victory against Everton.

The victory sees United move joint top of the Premier League, with the same record as Manchester City after five games.

Rooney was given a warm welcome at Old Trafford and left to a standing ovation, but it was Valencia that got fans buzzing early on as an outstanding half-volley kicked off a United win that ended 4-0 thanks to late goals by Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial.

Lukaku blew a glorious chance and Juan Mata hit the post as United attempted to blow the visitors’ threat away, with Rooney’s 82nd-minute substitution — the day before facing a drink drive charge at Stockport Magistrates’ Court — followed by three late goals.

Mkhitaryan drove home within seconds of Rooney’s departure and then Lukaku blasted the net against his former club before Martial’s stoppage-time penalty concluded a comprehensive victory.

It was quite the end to a match that started with an emphatic finish.
