Everton 4 – 0 Manchester United – A dominant Everton inflicted a sixth defeat in eight games on Manchester United to dent their hopes of a top-four Premier League finish.
Gylfi Sigurdsson and Lucas Digne scored stunning long-range goals after Richarlison’s acrobatic opener at Goodison Park.
Substitute Theo Walcott completed the rout with a guided finish.
A lacklustre United, who were knocked out of the Champions League by Barcelona on Tuesday, were bereft of ideas and their only shot on target came in the 86th minute.
Marcus Rashford spurned their best chance when he got behind the Everton defence and his lob sailed over Jordan Pickford’s crossbar.
Victory lifted Everton to seventh in the table, which could deliver European football next season, while United remain sixth.
They are two points behind fourth-placed Arsenal, who host Crystal Palace at on Sunday.
Everton 4 – 0 Manchester United | English Premier League – Match Highlights
- 13′ 1 – 0 Richarlison hooks in scissor kick! The Brazilian doesn’t miss this time! Another long-throw does the job for Everton, just like it did against Arsenal a couple of weeks ago… Lucas Digne launches one into the box, Dominic Calvert-Lewin flicks it on and Richarlison hooks it in with an acrobatic overhead kick. Cracking finish. Then he does a chicken dance to finish, timely.
- 28′ 2 – 0 Gylfi Sigurdsson finds bottom corner from 25 yards! What a strike! Everton break from that Manchester United corner and the United defence just keeps backing off and backing off as Gylfi Sigurdsson drives forward. The Iceland midfielder looks up and decides to have a crack, and beats David De Gea with a superb right-footed effort from 25 yards or so. Wonderful finish.
- 56′ 3 – 0 Lucas Digne volleys in Everton’s third! Another cracker! David de Gea can only punch the corner out as far as Lucas Digne and the full-back lashes in left-footed from the edge of the area on the half volley. Sweet as you like, and no chance for the unsighted De Gea as Digne drills it through a crowd into the bottom corner. Everton soaring.
- 64′ 4 – 0 Theo Walcott scores solo effort to add to United’s woes! Unbelievable. This is an absolute rout. It comes from a throw-in in Everton’s half and is so easy for the Toffees as the ball is flicked into Gylfi Sigurdsson’s path and he drives forward before rolling Theo Walcott through on goal. The substitute has time to steady himself and slot beyond a despairing David de Gea. Game over.
