FT

  •  

    That's it for tonight. Join us again for Live Commentary on Europa League qualifying this Thursday.

  •  

    For Manchester United: Kagawa and De Gea were excellent all game. Rooney and Nani, not so much.

  •  

    David Moyes will be delighted with that result. His tactics worked perfectly and Everton will take home a deserved three points.

  • 90'

    FULL-TINE: Everton 1-0 Manchester United - Marouane Fellaini's towering header gives Everton the victory in a tremendous defensive effort from the Toffees.

  • 90'

    United still come. It's relentless now...

  • 90'

    Gibson fires a shot at goal, blocked by Vidic.

  • 90'

    Valencia penalised near halfway and Everton buy some time.

  • 90'

    Heitinga replaces Fellaini

  • 90'

    United come again and Anderson fires a shot at goal which flies narrowly wide.

  • 90'

    Four minutes added-time...

  • 90'

    Naismith replaces Jelavic

  • 88'

    Ashley Young looks to dig out a cross, but merely succeeds in finding Howard, again. The final ball has been terrible, with Young and Nani most culpable.

  • 86'

    Jelavic is down and will receive treatment. This is not the start that Man Utd were looking for.

  • 85'

    Anderson in place of Cleverley

  • 84'

    It's all Man Utd now, but they are not creating any clear-cut chances. They need to find a way past this Everton wall.

  • 82'

    Once more Tony Hibbert makes a fine tackle on Evra and in return wins a goal-kick for his side once again.

  • 81'

    Evra and Young once more contrive to give the ball awau in a promising position. It's been a theme for United tonight.

  • 80'

    Evra looks to get on the end of an Ashley Young ball down the line, but Tony Hibbert slides in with a crunching tackle to win the ball.

  • 79'

    So close! Van Persie does brilliantly in the right channel to play the ball in-field for Kagawa, but Tim Howard charges off his line to smother.

  • 77'

    Nani is replaced by Young

  • 76'

    United's defence is in a mess once more and Vidic takes a big risk to take the ball off the toes of De Gea. This time he gets away with it.

  • 75'

    Nani looks to create a crossing chance on the left and does, but his ball is dire once more. He's having a terrible game.

  • 74'

    Header after header from Everton as United throw the ball into the area.

  • 73'

    Scholes' tight-rope is getting narrower. Anderson sent to warm-up.

  • 72'

    Once more, though, Everton clear emphatically from the corner. Impressive stuff.

  • 71'

    Evra wins United another corner. He is now operating as a left-wing as the Red Devils look for an equaliser.

  • 70'

    Vidic rises highest as Evra delivers from the left, but his effort flies wide of Howard's goal.

  • 69'

    Corner after corner for United now. They are really applying the pressure in the search for a goal.

  • 68'

    Van Persie replaces Welbeck

  • 67'

    OFF THE LINE! Kagawa steals the ball away from Howard and gives Cleverley an easy opportunity. The midfielder fires at goal, but Jagielka is covering and hacks clear.

  • 65'

    There are changes on the way it would appear. Van Persie could be set for his debut, with United needing a goal.

  • 64'

    Fellaini is terrifying the Manchester United defence. This time it is Vidic who he towers above to head at De Gea.

  • 63'

    Scholes is warned for a foul on Fellaini this time. He needs to be substituted for his own good.

  • 62'

    United are really throwing numbers forward now, but Everton are clearing every ball into the box.

  • 60'

    This time Nani does better, though, and wins a corner off Baines. His subsequent delivery of the set-piece is terrible.

  • 59'

    United have players flooding forward in the box and Nani is only supply a good cross. He can't. Howard claims.

  • 58'

    Man Utd can't say they weren't warned. Fellaini has been the best player in this game so far.

  • 57'

    GOAL Everton 1-0 Manchester United Fellaini with a header!!! Corner sent in by Baines and Fellaini is high above Carrick to head home.

  • 56'

    Rooney is once more given time and space 20 yards out thanks to the good work of Kagawa. His shot this time is very poor.

  • 55'

    Cleverley robs Baines and looks to slide Rooney in behind the Everton defence, but Distin once more intercepts.

  • 53'

    Jelavic and Vidic tangle once again. It's Jelavic penalised this time.

  • 52'

    Kagawa is everywhere when United attack and is putting some sublime touches together. Phenomenal so far.

  • 50'

    Jagielka does brilliantly again, this time intercepting Rooney's return ball for Kagawa.

  • 50'

    Jagielka does brilliantly again, this time intercepting Rooney's return ball for Kagawa.

  • 49'

    At the other end, Kagawa slides Welbeck through but Jagielka does brilliantly to recover and deny a scoring opportunity.

  • 48'

    Fellaini is not being dealt with. The Belgian rises highest and heads down for Osman whose half-volley rattles the crossbar.

  • 47'

    Gibson spins away from Cleverley in midfield and lines-up a shot from 30 yards which flies miles wide of the goal. Terrible.

  • 46'

    Wayne Rooney is given time and space to cross from the right, but that is awful. Rooney merely finds the fans behind the goal.

  • 46'

    SECOND-HALF underway, no changes for either side.

  •  

    Will Sir Alex Ferguson choose to make changes? They need to get hold of Fellaini, or there could be trouble.

  •  

    Shinji Kagawa has been the leading light for Man Utd

  • 45'

    HALF-TIME: Everton 0-0 Man Utd - Chances at both ends. Great saves from De Gea have kept United level, but Rooney should have done better on two occasions.

  • 45'

    Lovely cross from Kagawa and he picks out Rooney perfectly. The England striker fluffs his header though.

  • 45'

    Two minutes added-time...

  • 45'

    Baines takes and it's heading for the corner. Excellent save once again from De Gea though.

  • 45'

    Vidic fouls Jelavic as they compete for a high-ball. Baines stands over the free-kick.

  • 44'

    STAT: Shinji Kagawa has completed 29/29 passes so far. 100%

  • 43'

    Almost for United. Scholes to Kagawa who backheels for Rooney, but Distin covers across well once again.

  • 42'

    United attack and look ominous as Nani runs at Pienaar in the area, but the South African comes out on top. Well defended.

  • 40'

    De Gea saves again! Fellaini wins another header and Osman fires at goal. De Gea bats the ball away powerfully.

  • 39'

    Sublime through-ball from Kagawa to release Welbeck. His shot is just wide, but was he tugged as he shot? A sheepish looking Jagielka jogs off. Replays show some contact, but not enough.

  • 38'

    Big chance for Rooney. The ball reaches Evra on the left and he crosses for Rooney. The England mans shot is straight at Howard.

  • 37'

    United camped in the Everton half now, working the ball around the box.

  • 36'

    Penalty appeals now. Baines looks to get into the area and Scholes bursts across to take the boucing ball. Baines tumbles, but nothing given.

  • 35'

    Baines and Pienaar combine well on the left of the area, but Carrick knicks the ball away at the last minute.

  • 34'

    Nani is walking a tight-rope now as he fouls Fellaini. The referee has a word.

  • 32'

    Brilliant keeping at the other end now. Pienaar looks to curl a shot home from the edge of the area, but De Gea only sees it late. The Spaniard gets down low to save.

  • 31'

    Pienaar lashes a half-volley well wide from 30 yards after Fellaini's knockdown.

  • 30'

    Half an hour gone at Goodison Park and it's honours even thus far.

  • 29'

    An almighty scramble in the Everton area as Welbeck bundles his way through. Gibson fails to clear, but the offside flag is raised.

  • 28'

    Great save! Rooney looks to reverse the ball low to the near-post and Howard does well to save low to his right.

  • 27'

    United now look to counter with Kagawa starting the attack. They reach the edge of the area but Scholes is clipped by Pienaar. Free-kick.

  • 26'

    Everton are applying some pressure now. United coping well, but this is good stuff from the Toffees.

  • 25'

    From the resulting corner De Gea rises to punch away. Pienaar heads back towards goal and De Gea tips over the bar well.

  • 24'

    Lovely move from Osman and Pienaar, with the former picking out Jelavic. De Gea gets out to smother.

  • 24'

    Tim Howard is not happy. Nani lines up a shot from 25 yards which is not too far wide. The keeper feels he was given to much time to shoot.

  • 23'

    Kagawa looks to lay off the ball to Rooney. His first touch is good, but Gibson slides in well to take the ball.

  • 22'

    A brief Everton attack comes to an end and United have possession once more.

  • 20'

    Two strikes at goal from Welbeck as Evra's cross falls at his feet. Hibbert blocks both.

  • 19'

    Nice passing football from Man Utd now, keeping the ball well in midfield.

  • 17'

    De Gea stays down to receive treatment. Fellaini's forearm caught him across the face there.

  • 16'

    Vidic gives away a free-kick for a poor challenge on Fellaini to the right of the box. De Gea rises well to punch above Fellaini.

  • 15'

    Danger signs there for Manchester United, then, as the makeshift duo in defemce were badly exposed.

  • 14'

    Fellaini does brilliantly to spin Valencia and burst past Carrick and from a narrow angle he rattles the post. Would be a tough ask to score from there though.

  • 13'

    Scholes with a late and reckless tackle on Darron Gibson.

  • 12'

    Cleverley and Rooney look to play a one-two at the edge of the box, but the former's run is blocked. The mighty Distin cleans-up once more.

  • 11'

    Valencia looks to overlap past Nani on the right flank and feels he should have a corner after a challenge from Baines. Goal-kick.

  • 10'

    A good pace to the game so far. Both teams looking to movethe ball around and attack quickly.

  • 9'

    At the other end, Kagawa plays a beautiful first-time ball to Rooney, but Distin's pace allows him to recover. Rooney cannot pick-out the Japanese midfielder with his return pass.

  • 8'

    Baines once more looks for that same ball over the top to Jelavic, Carrick clears once again.

  • 7'

    United playing the ball in and around the Everton area. Kagawa central to the move, but no chance created as of yet.

  • 5'

    Corner to Everton on their right. Baines delivers towards the six-yard box, but the ball is bundled behind for a goal-kick.

  • 4'

    Baines looks for a long ball over the top towards Jelavic, who is marked by Carrick. The Englishman shepherds the ball back to de Gea.

  • 3'

    Nani booked for a late tackle on Baines, but that is very harsh.

  • 2'

    Nani looks to get down the right, having left Baines for dead. Distin rescues his colleague though.

  • 1'

    Baines looks to launch a free-kick into the box from deep on the left. Leon Osman makes contact, but the header is never threatening the goal.

  • 1'

    KICK-OFF at Goodison Park...
