Everton rubbed salt into Manchester United wounds which were opened earlier this week at Camp Nou by thrashing the Red Devils 4-0.

Goals from Richarlison, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Lucas Digne and Theo Walcott rounded up a memorable afternoon for the Toffees, who continued their excellent run of form.

Digne and Sigurdsson were excellent for Everton, among other players. We take a look at how the players from both teams fared.

EVERTON

Pickford 7: Hard to rate an on-field spectator. Pickford was not troubled at all as United produced just one shot on target.

Digne 9: One of  the best players on the pitch, Digne was always creating problems on the left flank. The left-back produced good deliveries into the box and scored a belter.

Zouma 8: Absolutely solid at the back, part of the reason Pickford had a boring day at the office.

Keane 7: Looked sloppy at times, but a solid shift nonetheless. Kept Romelu Lukaku in check throughout the game.

Coleman 7: Completely shut down Anthony Martial and provided some legs in attack too.

Schneiderlin 7: Ran the midfield along with Idrissa Gueya, played a progressive and confident game against his former club.

Gueye 8: Toyed with United’s midfield, especially in the second half. Disciplined and sharp performance by the 29-year-old.

Bernard 7: Lacked end-product at times, but had enough in his boots to continuously test the United defence.

Sigurdsson 9: A complete performance as a number 10, the long-ranger was the cherry on top of what was one of his best performances this season.

Calvert-Lewin 7: Whether he meant to assist Richarlison with his touch or not is immaterial. Nevertheless, he was lively throughout and kept United’s defence on their toes.

Richarlison 8: An injury cut his evening short, but Richarlison did more in one half than what United collectively managed in two. Scored the opener with a brilliant aerial effort.

Substitutes

Walcott 8: Joined the party in the second half and slotted one past David De Gea comfortably.

McCarthy 6: Replaced Gueya for the last 15 minutes, when the game was practically done and dusted, wasn’t troubled as much.

Jagielka N/A: Came in for Digne at the 85th minute, not enough touches to pass a judgement.

MANCHESTER UNITED

De Gea 5: There was probably not much he could have done about two of the four goals, but it was still a terribly sub-par performance by the Spaniard, to his and regular standards.

Dalot 5: The youngster started on the left in this game and was comfortably beaten by Richarlison in most of the duels.

Lindelof 6: Probably the best player in the back-line, but this back-line just conceded four goals and could most certainly have conceded two more if not for a couple of good saves by the keeper.

Smalling 5: Won a couple of aerials thanks to the height-advantage he enjoys over Calvert-Lewin, but did nothing to prevent the humiliation.

Jones 4: Picked off from where he left at Barcelona, yet another poor performance by the centre-back.

Matic 3: Provided absolutely nothing to the game and allowed Siggurdsson acres of space as he squared up for the shot which hit the back of the net.

Fred 4: Woeful performance by the Brazilian who was mostly running around without much purpose. Understandably removed at half-time.

Pogba 5: With four key-passes, Pogba was the only source of creativity and the best player for United. But that’s not saying much.

Martial 5: Was at the end of probably the best chance of the second half, the shot which went wide summed up his night.

Lukaku 5: The striker had zero shots on goal and looked lost throughout the game.

Rashford 4: The youngster’s woeful run continued as he failed to pose any threat of any magnitude.

Substitutes

McTominay 3: Let Everton’s attack run through the neutral third like hot knife through butter on what was a forgettable outing for the youngster.

Young 4: Replaced an awful Phil Jones at half-time and was clearly not much of an upgrade.

Pereira N/A: Replaced Rashford for the last 15 minutes, wasn’t involved in the game as much.
