Manchester United moved back into second place in the Premier League behind Manchester City as they eased to victory over Everton at a subdued Goodison Park.

United manager Jose Mourinho was keen to end a sequence of three draws and they were able to achieve it with the minimum of fuss against Sam Allardyce’s toothless hosts.

Anthony Martial compensated for the absence of Romelu Lukaku and Zlatan Ibrahimovic with a superb curling effort from 20 yards in the 57th minute after former United star Wayne Rooney lost possession.

Everton barely posed a threat apart from an Oumar Niasse header off target, and United wrapped up a win that reduces Manchester City’s lead to 12 points before they play Watford on Tuesday when Jesse Lingard struck a brilliant shot from outside the area beyond Jordan Pickford.
