Main talking points from United's win over Everton
Antonio Valencia fired a screamer before Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial all scored to seals the 3 points for United.
The unsung are thriving under Mourinho
As his second season gets into full swing, it is clear Jose Mourinho is having a galvanising effect on some players whose Old Trafford futures had been far from secure. Marouane Fellaini, starting here in place of the injured Paul Pogba, appears to be enjoying life under Jose but few are relishing it more than Antonio Valencia. Named skipper again, he was solid throughout and, of course, hit that rare stunner.
Why either Martial OR Rashford?
Mourinho's swaying between either Anthony Martial or Marcus Rashford continued against Everton with the duo carrying on with their job-share on the left wing. But is Mourinho's naturally defensive-minded tactics stunting the attack by not playing them together? It would seem so, when he decided to swap the Englishman with Jesse Lingard on the hour mark. When will Mourinho trust the two speedsters either side of Lukaku? That will be when United will truly be a real constant danger.
More to Lukaku than his goals
The shock of the afternoon came when Lukaku missed a first half sitter but, before he knocked in his seventh of the season just before full-time, this was also proof there is more to his game than hitting the back of the net. He was a constant, muscular nuisance to Everton's defence, produced the calm assist to calm nerves and then sealed matters himself.
He had the visitor's only real chance of the first half when he dragged his right-footed shot wide of David de Gea's right-hand post before forcing a fine stop from the Spaniard with his feet in the second. He is not the answer to Everton's goalscoring problems but he still has plenty to offer and exploited the space well in deeper areas when the game became more stretched. He didn't quite do enough to justify a shock big-money move back to United in January but he certainly brushed off any suggestions his move to Goodison is the start of his career winding down.
