A very mediocre first-half from both sides. Hopefully a better second-half in the next couple of minutes.
No sign of improvement from Rojo. Deulofeu beating him for pace every time. Can't deal with his tricks either.— Paul Hirst (@hirstclass) April 3, 2016
No sign of improvement from Rojo. Deulofeu beating him for pace every time. Can't deal with his tricks either.
25' Great awareness by De Gea as Smalling slips and Lukaku gains the possession before pushing forward towards goal with determination, however, the Spaniard 'keeper once again comes to the rescue for the Red Devils and boots the ball into safety.
FULL TIME! Martial's goal separates the two side on the day as it finishes 1-0. United claim all three points on a special day for the club and Sir Bobby Charlton. The hunt for fourth is very much on! Roberto Martinez will be disappointed with the service (or lack thereof) that Lukaku received today, although they did have two great opportunities through Jagielka.
Lingard receives a booking, only the second of the afternoon, after a pull on an Everton player.
There will be a minimum of four additional minutes at Old Trafford. A win takes the Red Devils into fifth, just one point behind City in fourth.
Rashford gets a scoop-come-poke in on goal with very little power after some nice link up play with Mata. An easy take for Robles, who is hurried in his release.
Oumar Niasse is on for Ross Barkley.
Fosu-Mensah clears inside the six-yard box! Coleman, who was fed in brilliantly by Stones, fires a low delivery which Lukaku misses, and that really was a great opportunity for Everton.
Baines rolls it into space for Cleverley who smashes it into a United player, sparking a quick counter attack which United fail to capitalise on.
What a save to deny Jagielka! An amazing instinctive block from De Gea. The Everton captain could've had two today! Following that, Martial concedes a free kick on the right flank.
Blind, arguably man of the match, is off. Valencia is on. Presumably, Fosu-Mensah will go central with Smalling.
Blind, who has been superb today, has gone down holding his right hamstring. Unclear whether this is an injury or just cramp. Either way, Valencia is stripping off to replace him.
Rashford's body language, and an offside decision against him, suggests the youngster may be tiring here. There's some urgency from Everton but they can't find a way past Blind and co.
Everton manage to a clear a dangerous situation which started with a mazy dribble into the box from Martial and ended with an opportunity for Rashford.
Barkley flashes a cross into no-man's land out for a throw, as they search for an equiliser. Meanwhile, Oumar Niasse and Arouna Kone are both warming up, should Martinez look to the bench for an attacking option.
Lukaku has been way too quiet so far today.
STAT: Martial's goal was Manchester United's 1,000th goal at home in the Premier League, the only side to achieve that feat.
Everton make their first change. Martinez brings on Kevin Mirallas in place of Deulofeu, who has had little joy this half. Mirallas returns after a two-game suspension.
Lingard misses it! Mata plays in a ball across the near post and Lingard is inches away from getting a toe on it! Immediately after, Smalling is booked for a sliding challenge.
Herrera wins a corner in his first involvement of the game, with his cross being blocked by Stones.
Manchester United make their second change. Carrick makes way for Ander Herrera.
CROSS BAR! Great outswinging corner from Deulofeu, finds the head of Jagielka who thunders a header onto the woodwork after getting away from Michael Carrick.
MARTIAL! MANCHESTER UNITED LEAD! The Frenchman taps home at the far post after a great low cross across the face from Fosu-Mensah. Brilliant link up play involving a Rashford backheel in the build up as well.
Blind is given a stern warning by the referee after tumbling over Deulofeu. Baines lines up a cross on Everton's right. His delivery is headed behind by Martial.
Chance! Lukaku's blocked effort from close range goes wide! The big man showed brilliant strength to hold off Blind and turn but Blind gets a block on the shot. Corner for Everton.
Deulofeu, faced by Blind, pulls off a couple of step overs in the box before crossing low for Lukaku but he's denied by a tight marker.
Fosu-Mensah's first involvement is upfield, on the right. The youngster delivers a cross but it's too close to Robles who collects easily.
Second half! Everton kick off the second 45.
Half time change! 18-year-old Tim Fosu-Mensah is stripped off and ready to come on as Manchester United take off Rojo, who had a tough time against Deulofeu.
HALF TIME! In truth, the highlight of the match so far came pre-match during Bobby Charlton's presentation. Martial's had a couple of chances but neither 'keeper has been properly troubled. United have slightly edged proceedings, though.
The fourth official indicates a single minute of added time to be played.
Martial uses his hand to control a ball played back to him inside the Everton penalty area, to the annoyance of the crowd, who thought United had a chance.
Martial plays a brilliant one-two with Rashford, who received the pass back right in front of the penalty area before being tackled hard by Stones. United appeal for a penalty but the referee isn't interesting.
A crunching tackle on Martial by Coleman in the area is jeered by the home fans, although it was a clean one. Blind's corner is headed goalward at the far post by Schneiderlin but goes tamely out for a goal kick. United are definitely growing into the match.
Once more, Blind has read a ball forward to Lukaku really well. The big forward has already outmuscled the defender on a number of occasions, but not yet out maneuvered him.
Everton have dealt well with a number of half chances - corners and crosses - created by United in recent moments. Rashford and Martial have linked up well but Robles hasn't had anything major to do.
Rashford wins a corner which Blind takes, but Martial's header is disturbed by Coleman before being cleared.
De Gea wins a chance against Lukaku after Smalling's slip had the Belgian in on goal but that was great 'keeping by the Spaniard to come out of his area and clear.
Mata picks out Rojo with a switch of play to the left of Everton's penalty area. The Argentine attempts and audacious volley which goes harmlessly wide.
Baines sends it in deep, Lukaku climbs above Smalling and loops a header towards the back post but the ball is ushered wide by Lingard.
Baines fails to get the elevation he needs but still manages to win a corner as the wall does its job.
McCarthy wins another free kick, as he gets to the ball just before Schneiderlin, who stuck out a leg just to the left of centre. Baines will fancy this...
STAT: Everton have won four of the last seven meetings between these two sides. They did, however, lose the last contest at Goodison Park earlier this season
Chance for Martial! The Frenchman gets his laces through the ball from the edge of the area but it takes an important (and unseen by the referee) knick off Baines to send it just wide of Robles' goal.
End to end stuff! First Lukaku's backheel to get Lennon in is denied by Daley Blind. Then, Morgan Schneiderlin's cross field pass is superbly controlled by Rashford, but his cross into the area is also blocked.
This time Mata dispossess Deulofeu after the latter easily dribbled his way passed Rojo and into the penalty area. The television commentator describes his run as 'not quite Messi'. Rojo could be in for a tough afternoon.
Baines' delivery is swung in toward Lukaku but Rashford manages to clear.
Cleverley wins a free kick in a promising crossing position as he's felled by Chris Smalling on the right side. Baines lines this one up...
Half a chance there as Rojo whips in a good early ball from the left which Rashford attempts to backheel in the air for Martial but Jagielka blocks. Corner for United.
Cleverley, on his first appearance back at Old Trafford for Everton, does some defensive work as United look to get into the game.
STAT: Only one of Everton's 9 defeats this season have been away from home.
James McCarthy is down after a clash with Marcus Rojo while clearing the ball. He's receiving treatment now.
KICK OFF! The Red Devils get things under way. Today's referee is Andre Marriner.
A truly moving moment that is sure to inspire the current United team. We're moments away from kick off now.
The South Stand has officially been unveiled as the Sir Bobby Charlton Stand, to thunderous applause at the Theatre of Dreams. Sir Bobby is moved to tears in the middle of the pitch.
Sir Bobby Charlton has been welcomed on to the pitch to a glorious reception and fan mosaic as the two sides walk out onto the field.
The Toffees make two changes from their home defeat to Arsenal. Ramiro Funes Mori and Mo Besic drop to the bench, making way for John Stones and Gerard Deulofeu.
Manchester United are unchanged from their derby victory over Manchester City last time out. Ander Herrera and Ashley Young are named amongst the substitutes. 18-year-old Marcus Rashford makes his ninth consecutive start.
Everton XI: Joel; Coleman, Jagielka, Stones, Baines; Barkley, Cleverley, McCarthy, Lennon; Deulofeo; Lukaku.
Manchester United XI: De Gea; Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Rojo; Schneiderlin, Carrick; Lingard, Mata, Martial; Rashford.
