Romelu Lukaku made one and scored one against his former club

Much was made of the return of Wayne Rooney, United's record goalscorer, to Old Trafford for the first time since his summer move back to Everton.

The England global threatened in the early goings and forced United goalkeeper David de Gea into making a few good saves.

United finally put some distance between themselves and Everton in the final 10 minutes, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Lukaku and Anthony Martial adding late goals to hand Jose Mourinho's side a flattering victory. You don't touch the ball for minutes and minutes and minutes and then have an important moment in the game. Darmian has yet to prove worthy of a regular starting spot and Mourinho does not seem to rate Shaw, as he often questioned his fitness and ability last season. A little bit of pressure because of the bad results but they came with pride and with quality and they started giving us some little difficulties.

United have stormed to the top of the Premier League table alongside bitter rivals Manchester City after five games.

"I think it is more hard now", he said.

And Macari stressed the importance of Manchester United's win over Everton as he feels with the other contenders to the title dropping points, it was imperative the Red Devils took advantage.

Mata concedes that there is plenty of cause for optimism at present, but the World Cup victor is also wary of getting swept up in the hype surrounding Jose Mourinho's side so early in the season.

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.

Antonio Valencia's fourth-minute stunner got United off to a brilliant start, but it took them a while to really finish Everton off.

"They gave us difficulty but I looked behind me on the bench and saw alternatives".

"I read the United programme and what my colleague [Mourinho] said about Everton spending £140m and so they need to go for the top four", Koeman explained.

"If there's anybody in this room and outside and sees this as something realistic for us, please comment".
