"We have four home games in different competitions and we need to win, otherwise we'll have problems".

Jose Mourinho has suggested Everton should be targeting a top-four finish after spending 145 million pounds in the summer but the Merseyside club's manager, Ronald Koeman, says his Manchester United counterpart's claims are unrealistic.

The model of playing an attacking midfielder alongside Wayne Rooney has already been disproven because the former United and England captain is known to drop deep and receive the ball.

It was their fourth 4-0 victory in their opening five Premier League matches.

This was Everton's heaviest league defeat at Old Trafford since losing 5-1 in December 1999 under Walter Smith.

Romelu Lukaku scored 26 times for Everton last season and his goal threat has not been replaced despite a huge outlay in new faces during the close season. They also lost 3-0 to Italy's Atalanta in the Europa League last week. The most prolific crosser in the side is Rooney, the main striker, and Sigurdsson, who was stunning for Swansea last season, seems to have taken a step down despite moving to a much bigger club.

Mata should've had an assist when he played Lukaku through in the first half only for the Belgium to fluff his lines.

The Belgian was in again seven minutes before the break, but this time Phil Jagielka got back to make a vital block with Pickford seemingly beaten. United, on the other hand, became laboured and ponderous in possession, as it struggled to craft goal-scoring opportunities.

"What I saw from the team made me happy".

Rooney's hopes of making a telling impact against United were ended with his withdrawal for Kevin Mirallas eight minutes from time. The £30million summer signing of England worldwide Michael Keane was meant to be the long-term solution to any defensive worries but his early-season form has dipped dramatically and there have been calls for the former Burnley centre-back to be dropped.
