Manchester United 4-0 Everton: Wayne Rooney greeted with a huge defeat

It was a sad homecoming for Wayne Rooney as Everton was thrashed 4-0 at Old Trafford on Super Sunday.

Manchester United’s all-time leading scorer watched his former team-mates take an early lead thanks to a fantastic strike from Antonio Valencia with just four minutes on the clock before late goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Romelu Lukaku, who was scoring against his former club, and Anthony Martial put further gloss on the victory.

Despite chances at either end, including a good one for Rooney, Everton couldn’t live up to United’s ruthlessness, as the hosts moved level on points at the top of the table with rivals Manchester City.

Manchester United 4-0 Everton: Wayne Rooney greeted with a huge defeat

The result leaves Everton with just four points after their first five Premier League games, although their tricky fixture list, which has seen them take on United, City, Chelsea and Tottenham, is behind them now.

Nemanja Matic whipped the ball across to the United full-back, who decided to hit an outrageous first-time effort from 22 yards which pinged like a rocket into the top corner.

Rooney spent most of the first half hour being crowded out of the game but he did wriggle free to turn a Cuco Martina cross a few yards wide before Lukaku missed a glorious chance when one-on-one with Jordan Pickford.

Rooney’s golden chance came just after the break when his tenacity inside the box left him with a very presentable opportunity from 12 yards out – but his former team-mate David de Gea was there to rescue the hosts.

In a much even second period, United slipped deeper as Everton grew in confidence although Juan Mata did fire a 20-yard free-kick against the post just before the hour mark and Matic fired a daisy-cutter just wide on 75 minutes.

Chelsea intensifies Andy Carroll Chase

Chelsea intensifies Andy Carroll Chase

Reports making the rounds today reveals that Chelsea are hugely interested in signing Andy Carroll from West Ham this month.

The Premier League champions has suffered a third successive goalless draw, for the first time in their history, against Leicester City on Saturday seems to have lost faith in Álvaro Morata.

The Spaniard has scored only twice in the top flight since mid-November and has gone five games without a goal.

Antonio Conte has now turned to Carroll for rescue as the Italian man continues to be reluctant to play Michy Batshuayi who will possibly be going on loan to Sevilla if a replacement can be secured.

Andy Carroll signed for West Ham from Liverpool in 2013 for £15m, and has seen his impact limited by injury in the years since.

Verge24 understands that the move for Chelsea signing Carroll may be a short-term solution before a summer recruitment drive, and West Ham would take some persuasion to part with Carroll on a six‑month loan deal.

David Moyes suggested last week that he would not want to see any of his forwards depart. Yet that may not dissuade Chelsea from exploring the option, reflecting the need to pep up the forward line amid a cluttered schedule.

Kelechi Iheanacho Going Nowhere – Claude Puel

Leicester City coach Claude Puel has dismissed speculation of his £25 million striker Kelechi Iheanacho leaving due to lack of playing time this January.

Puel refused to write off the former Manchester City forward, who has found the back of the net just once for the club this season.

Kelechi Iheanacho signed for Leicester in the summer from Manchester City but has made just two Premier League starts for the foxes.

The Nigerian Super Eagles attacking forward is expected to be on his way out of the club for a possible playing time in a quest to guarantee his place in the team to represent Nigeria in Russia later this year.

Last week, Nigeria national team handler Gernot Rohr said that he expects Iheanacho and his teammate Ahmed Musa to leave the King Power Stadium because of their lack of playing time, Puel has however dismissed any exit talk. According to him;

“We don’t know about what the national trainer said. We will see. We have discussions with different players. For example Iheanacho is a young player, arrived this season, and he will stay with us.

“I cannot talk about details about players. It is important to have a good balance in the team and have a good game time for the players.

“Iheanacho is a young player, he signed this season with us and we have to develop him. I hope he can have more game time in the second half of the season.”

He is a young player who arrives in a good team where there is competition and he needs to keep working and improve.”

Leicester will visit Chelsea on Saturday in the Premier League with Jamie Vardy fit after a groin injury.
