United took the lead thanks to a spectacular rising half-volley strike by Antonio Valencia.

The Ecuadorean defender half-volleyed Nemaja Matic’s crossfield pass into the roof of the net from just outside the area on four minutes.

Wayne Rooney, facing his former club for the first time after the transfer, dragged a shot wide for Everton in the first half and was denied by David De Gea at the start of the second half.

But Everton’s resistance faded when Henrikh Mkhitaryan doubled the hosts’ lead while converting Romelu Lukaku’s lay-off on 83 minutes.

Lukaku made up for a missed chance on 26 minutes with an 87th-minute effort from close range.

Anthony Martial then converted a stoppage-time penalty awarded for a handball by Morgan Schneiderlin.

Their fourth win of the campaign takes United level on 13 points with leaders Manchester City. Everton are 17th.
