Manchester United 4-0 Everton: Red Devils end pre-season in style with comfortable victory

Manchester United warmed up for the new season in style by easily seeing off Everton 4-0 at Old Trafford in their last friendly of the summer.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer selected a strong-looking line-up as he made his final preparations ahead of the start of the new Premier League campaign next weekend, with the majority of his Euro 2020 stars back.

The hosts' strength showed as they raced into a commanding 3-0 lead at the break thanks to Mason Greenwood's early opportunistic strike after a mistake by Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, Harry Maguire's towering header and a trademark Bruno Fernandes free-kick.

Despite a better showing in the second half from Rafa Benitez's Everton team, it was United who scored again in stoppage time via Diogo Dalot's looping header to ensure they go into next Saturday lunchtime's home clash with Leeds United in good heart, which cannot be said for the Toffees, who host Southampton later that day.
