Comments:

League position: 2nd After five games of this Premier League season, Manchester United had an identical record with leaders Manchester City. Former Everton forward Romelu Lukaku joined Louis Saha and Robin Van Persie as the three players who had now scored five goals in their opening five Premier League games for United. The Red Devils had now won their opening three home games of a Premier League season without conceding a goal for the first time since 2000-01. Manchester United manager José Mourinho said: "In the first 30 minutes were really impressive where we were playing probably our best football since the beginning of the season. Everton had a reaction in the second-half, we lost a little bit of control. We recovered that. We brought some consistency to the game and then I felt we could go with the counter, with Martial for the last minutes for a result that was too much, too heavy for them. They don't deserve to go with this result.”

Comments:

League position: 18th Everton had now gone 11 consecutive away games in the Premier League without a win for the first time since May 2004. The Toffees had now lost four games in a row without scoring a goal for the first time since New Year's Day in 2002. On his first return to Old Trafford, the only team that Manchester United's record goalscorer Wayne Rooney had never ended on the winning side against in a Premier League game remained as Manchester United. Everton manager Ronald Koeman said: “You can support players and give them confidence, but still we started this game afraid. Maybe that's normal with the start to the season we've had. When we looked at the fixtures, we knew we wouldn’t win them all. Now we have four games at home in different competitions and we need to win. If we don’t win, it's better to stop. Every manager in life has doubts. There's no-one who has no doubts in football as a manager."
