Robin van Persie's much-anticipated debut for Manchester United failed to prevent Everton delivering an early reality check in their bid to regain the Barclays Premier League title as the Toffees claimed a 1-0 win.

While defending champions and near-neighbours City achieved a come-from-behind win against Southampton on Sunday the Red Devils were second best for most of the night at Goodison Park.

The thorn in their side was midfielder Marouane Fellaini, who was a constant threat and deservedly capped an impressive performance with the only goal early in the second half.
