Rooney returns, but Lukaku shines as Manchester United defeats Everton 4-0

Rashord & Lukaku

David Degea denied Wayne Rooney a goal on his return to Old Trafford, but Romelu Lukaku made it 7 goals in 7 United appearances as he puts one passed his former employers.

United got an early lead when Matic found Valencia on the edge of the box, and the defender fired a first-time shot past Everton’s goalkeeper Jordan Pickford. Lukaku almost doubled the lead for the hosts but missed the target when one-on-one with Pickford.

Before the break Everton got the ball in the net after a great save from De Gea, but was ruled out for offside.

Everton started the second-half brilliantly and almost got back in the game, but De Gea was outstanding on goal, denying Wayne Rooney and Sigurdsson’s close range effort.

Ronald Koeman’s men continued to press United, but United broke on a counter via a lose ball from Everton, as Lukaku found Henrik Mkhitaryan in acres of space, as the Armenian doubled the lead for Joe Mourinho’s men.

Romelu Lukaku made it three for United after his initial free-kick was deflected, but made no mistake to fire home a headed flick from Jesse Lingard, before substitute Anthony Martial converted a spot kick to make it 4 as United becomes joint league leaders with Manchester City with same goal different.
