Showed some questionable handling earlier on but was rarely tested as Everton dominated.
Is often criticised for his poor crosses after working some good positions but was flawless in that regard and in keeping to his defensive duties.
Showed no sign of having lost any pace despite his advancing years. A performance of real composure next to the battling Jagielka.
The consistent brilliance of his deliveries caused constant problems for the Red Devils backline and he was unfortunate to see a free-kick palmed away well by De Gea.
A performance of real quality from the Englishman. Showed brilliant anticipation against an unpredictable United forward line and was dominant in the air.
Kept things ticking over well against his former team-mates and showed the intelligence not to dive in with men running at him. His corner led to the hosts opening the scoring.
The South African is permanently back at his spritual home and celebrated that fact with a masterful performance. His link-up with Leighton Baines is always one of Everton's biggest threats.
Only slightly quieter than some of his other attacking cohorts but still as inventive as ever. Unfortunate to see a fine strike come off the bar early in the second half.
Displayed his years of experience by positioning himself intelligently to prevent United's attempts to bypass their anaemic midfield.
A colossus in attack for the Toffees, winning everything aerially and showing great feet to bamboozle the visitors' defence. Fully deserved to be the man to win the match with a towering header.
Did not get the sort of chance which he regularly takes but put doubt in the minds of United's defence with some fine movement.
David de Gea
Produced some stunning saves to keep his side in the match during the first half bt could do nothing about Fellaini's bullet header.
Like others around him the Serbian could not cope with Fellaini's presence but managed to keep Everton's threat down to a minimum with some fine defensive work.
Rarely threatened on the outside as Osman floated inwards but failed to carve out any sort of attacking threat with Nani.
Kept things moving nicely but could not help United to get a grip in midfield against the boisterous Toffees.
Had a poor game in truth. Failed to offer threat on the left-hand side and showed his petulance in committing several needless fouls.
A frustrating Premier League debut for the Japan international as he was stifled well by a tight Everton midfield.
Spread the ball well for the visitors but looked out of his comfort zone as United were dominated. Picked up his customary booking for a sloppy challenge.
His skills as a right-back were well and truly tested by the brilliant Baines and Pienaar who made the Ecuadorian's night a very uncomfortable one.
Performed admirably in central defence, despite his inexperience in that position. That he was beaten to the ball by Fellaini for the Toffees' opener was perhaps out of his control given that the Belgian would have beaten any full-time centre-half to the ball.
Ineffective in a wide role on the left-hand side. The fowarwad contributed little to the visitors' attack before being inevitably withdrawn.
A shadow of his usual self. Wasted the ball in some crucial positions and failed to provide the spark which United so desperately needed.
