Romelu Lukaku scored against his former club as Manchester United thrashed Everton 4-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Goals by Antonio Valencia, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Lukaku and Anthony Martial gave Jose Mourinho’s side all three points.

Valencia opened the scoring in the 4th minute, smashing a shot past Jordan Pickford from 25 yards to give his side an early lead.

After a keenly contested second half, the home side scored three lates goals to ensure Wayne Rooney’s return to Old tarfford ended in a dismal defeat.

Mkhitaryan scored United’s second in the 83rd minute, after an error by the Everton defence. A mistake by Ashley Williams, Lukaku does well to find Mkhitaryan who sweeps the ball into the back of the net.

Provider turned scorer as the Belgium striker bundled in the United’s third before substitute Anthony Martial added a stoppage-time penalty to cap a well deserved victory for the Red Devils.

The result moves Jose Mourinho’s side joint-top of the Premier League, alongside Manchester City, after five Premier League games.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho: “We started really well and 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.”
