English Premier League: Rooney and Lukaku play their former clubs as Manchester United beat Everton 4-0

Romelu Lukaku scored against his former club as Manchester United thrashed Everton to move joint top of the Premier League.

Wayne Rooney’s return to Old Trafford ended in a dismal defeat – embossed by three late goals – which sent Everton into the bottom three.

The Toffees have endured a dire start to the season and have not scored a goal in any of four successive defeats in all competitions.

Antonio Valencia smashed a shot past Jordan Pickford from 25 yards to put Jose Mourinho’s side into an early lead which rarely came under threat.

Rooney, United’s record goalscorer, had Everton’s two best opportunities but once he left the pitch with nine minutes to go his former employers hit overdrive.
