English Premier League Report: Manchester United v Everton 17 September 2017

It was Rooney's first game back at his old stomping ground following his return to Everton in the off season.

The Manchester United midfielder stressed the importance of the team player that the Belgian is and feels his unselfish desire to work hard for his own team-mates makes him such an important cog in Jose Mourinho's side.

"I try to shout at them but it's in their head after a tough period".

The win, which came courtesy of goals from Antonio Valencia, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial, moved United level on points and goal difference with Manchester City at the top of the table.

Joint leaders in the league with Manchester City with 13 points from five games, United beat Everton 4-0 on Sunday and have defeated West Ham United and Swansea with identical scorelines.

It wasn't just Wayne Rooney's return (and he put in a really good shift despite his off-the-pitch issues, the least of which is the two-year ban for driving under the influence he received on Monday).

Everton are in the bottom three after losing three Premier League games in a row, conceding nine goals without reply.

United responded and nearly went 2-0 up on 65 minutes but Juan Mata's well taken free-kick from the edge of Everton's box came off the post.

The draw ended Chelsea's streak of five consecutive home league wins over Arsenal.

"We could have won it".

Everton manager Ronald Koeman said his side's third heavy defeat in eight days was undeserved.

Koeman added: "Sorry, if there's anybody in this room and outside who sees something realistic (about) what is possible for this Everton, please come on". It does not look too good at the moment but I know we are more than good enough to turn this around.

Mourinho made the observation in his programme notes before United's 4-0 home win over the Toffees, citing their £140m of summer spending as evidence.

When asked what he considered to be a realistic target, the Dutchman said: "The same as last season".
