Full-Time: Everton 1-0 Manchester United
21.15 – Rooney tries to curl the ball past Howard as Kagawa makes a dummy run on his outside. It doesn’t work. He’s not playing well, the former Everton player.
21.27 – Rooney gets free and tries to feed it across the box, but there’s no United player there.
Welbeck goes off to be replaced by Robin van Persie. Strange, so strange, to see him in United gear.
21.58 – That’s it! A brilliant performance from Everton, who thoroughly deserved to beat Manchester United. Alex Ferguson’s side were lethargic and had no ideas.
United just could not handle Fellaini, who gave what will possibly be one of the performances of the season. Phenomenal stuff from a player who could well be tempting the more monied clubs before the window closes.
And so concludes the first round of games in the Premier League. Defeats for Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham. A poor draw for Arsenal. A stroll for Chelsea and a nervy win for the champions. It’s been a weekend to celebrate Swansea, Fulham and the brilliant perm of Merseyside’s favourite Belgium.
Thanks for keeping up…
