United thrash Rooney’s Everton with late flurry of goals

Monday, 18 September 2017 :  Manchester United ( 4 – 0 ) Everton

Romelu Lukaku scored against his former club as Manchester United thrashed Everton to move joint top of the Premier League.

Wayne Rooney’s return to Old Trafford ended in a dismal defeat – embossed by three late goals – which sent Everton into the bottom three.

The Toffees have endured a dire start to the season and have not scored a goal in any of four successive defeats in all competitions.

Antonio Valencia smashed a shot past Jordan Pickford from 25 yards to put Jose Mourinho’s side into an early lead which rarely came under threat.

Rooney, United’s record goalscorer, had Everton’s two best opportunities but once he left the pitch with nine minutes to go his former employers hit overdrive.

Lukaku found Henrikh Mkhitaryan to steer home before the Belgium striker bundled in the third himself at the far post, and substitute Anthony Martial added a stoppage-time penalty.

United and Manchester City have an identical record at the top after five Premier League games – wins, points, goals scored and goals conceded – with Pep Guardiola’s team on top only alphabetically. If the two teams had identical records at the end of the season, there would be a play-off.
