    Romelu Lukaku took a dangerous free kick about 35 yards out from goal, dead center, and the hard left-footed-shot deflected to loop over the goal.

    But United struck first, aided by a bit of ping-pong in the box off a Juan Mata cross. Schneiderlin was Johnny-on-the-spot at the far post, and struck a low shot across the face of goal to beat Tim Howard.

    Herrera doubled the Red Devils’ advantage in the 23rd moment, heading home a Marcos Rojo cross after a grievous Everton tackle on Memphis.

    Rooney put an emphatic finish on the victory when he ran onto a pass and bundled a ball past Howard. 3-0. No chance of a comeback.

    Earlier Saturday, the soccer world learned it lost legendary Everton manager Howard Kendall at the age of 69.
