Ronald Koeman slams Jose Mourinho after comments following Old Trafford defeat

Manchester United thrashed Everton 4-0 after scoring three goals in the final 10 minutes on a miserable return to Old Trafford for Wayne Rooney in the English Premier League on Sunday.

Simon from Norway believes it is important to be at the top of the table and had some special praise for centurion David De Gea: "We played a good first half, but not so good second half, yet the last 15 minute was brilliant".

Rooney, who went back to his boyhood club in July after 13 years with United in which time he scored a club-record 253 goals, wasted two good chances to cancel out Antonio Valencia's stunning early strike for the hosts. Last season's player of the year Ander Herrera made a comeback into the setup after Pogba's injury and performed well for Mourinho. We will be facing Burton Albion, a Championship club that will visit Old Trafford trying to play a historic game.

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has said it has never been more hard to win the Premier League title.

Everton were still in the game at 1-0, but United finally put the result beyond doubt with six minutes of normal time remaining when Henrikh Mkhitaryan doubled their advantage following a mistake from Ashley Williams.

"I think we needed that, after Liverpool", Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey said. "It was an intense game between two teams going for it. defensively we were much more stable", he said.

Mata concedes that there is plenty of cause for optimism at present, but the World Cup victor is also wary of getting swept up in the hype surrounding Jose Mourinho's side so early in the season.

"That is maybe unusual after a 4-0 defeat but they were really clinical and we didn't deserve this high defeat".

Lukaku has scored seven goals in his first seven appearances for United since joining from Everton in the summer for an initial £75m.

"Everton are going to be fine but they are living a hard moment", the Portuguese said after the game. I'm not happy how we've started the season but please be a bit realistic.
