Marouane Fellaini was a beast. You knew it was coming as he battered a makeshift Utd defense unceasingly with his physical presence. Utd finally broke in the 57th minutes as Fellaini rose above Michael Carrick to thump a header past David De Gea from a Darron Gibson corner. De Gea also produced a fine goalkeeping spell as he kept out a number of close calls. With this win, it is safe to say Everton is Utd's bogey team.
RVP was trotted out in the 69th minute and no, he did not break an ankle, but he did not score either. Rooney looked like he was carrying a load. But Shinji Kagawa turned in a pretty impressive debut performance. Sir Alex was forced to draft Carrick alongside Nemanja Vidic with Phil Jones, Jonny Evans, Chris Smalling, and Rio Ferdinand all out with injuries and they were mauled by Fellaini.
Watch out, this season might have some surprises at the top.
