    Match Report: Everton 0 - 3 Manchester United

    By Mollie Bennett (@molliebjourno)

    It was a day on which football took a back seat as an emotional Goodison Park paid tribute to Everton giant Howard Kendall, who sadly passed away earlier that morning.

    Evertonians would have hoped to mark the passing of club legend Kendall with a win, however Louis van Gaal’s men had other ideas.

    The returning John Stones and Seamus Coleman were as helpless as the rest of the Blues defence when Morgan Schneiderlin broke the deadlock in the 18th minute.

    The Toffees failed to clear Juan Mata’s corner on two attempts and the ball eventually fell to Schneiderlin, who finished passed the already-diving Tim Howard in the Everton goal.

    Five minutes later things went from bad to worse for the Toffees as Ander Herrera doubled United’s lead with a free header beyond Howard, to punish Everton’s poor defence once again.

    Everton improved after the break and David De Gea proved the difference as he made two vital saves to keep his sides lead.

    The Spaniard first denied Romelu Lukaku with his outstretched boot, before palming Ross Barkley’s free kick away from danger on the hour mark.

    Poor defending gifted United a third as Phil Jagielka gave the ball to Schneiderlin in a dangerous area, and Wayne Rooney eventually finished the counter attacking move, beating Howard with ease and putting the result beyond any doubt.

    Everton's tough run of fixtures continue as they travel to the Emirates on Saturday evening, to face the in-form Arsenal.
