Manchester United 4-0 Everton highlights
Wayne Rooney had a forgettable return to Old Trafford

Manchester United moved back to the top of the Premier League table after thrashing Everton 4-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday. Three goals after the 80th minute saw the United put Ronald Koeman's side to the sword.

It was the return of Wayne Rooney to Old Trafford while Romelu Lukaku was also playing his former club for the first time since his record-breaking switch from the Toffees.

Antonio Valencia opened the scoring with a long-range rocket of a shot that whizzed past goalkeeper Jordan Pickford to find the back of the net. It was his first goal at Old Trafford in almost four years.

The Red Devils took their time to find a second as a frustrated Jose Mourinho looked on but in the 84th minute Henrikh Mkhitaryan made it 2-0 with a well-taken goal.

All three points were secured when Romelu Lukaku sneaked in at the far post and made it 3-0, even celebrating against his former club. More salt was rubbed in their wounds as Anthony Martial dispatched a penalty for handball in stoppage time.

Here's how Twitter reacted to the game, especially Valencia's goal.

Goal of the season? Easily one of the best we've seen so far!

"It's not easy," says the man who has scored 411 goals in his career.

Was it a shot or a cross? The important thing is that it was a goal.

Did you know? Everton now have the popular game Angry Birds as their shirt sleeve sponsor. Only fitting that somebody came up with this.

Time for Paul to learn from his teamamte, maybe?

Why don't they play him in attack then?

Kim Jong-un agrees.

By the way, Henrikh Mkhitaryan has already had a better season than last year.
