The 31-year-old has only appearred in one league game for the Red Devils this season.

Everton made the perfect start as Bernard fired them ahead after 19 minutes on his first Premier League start of the season.

United levelled matters six minutes later thanks to Bruno Fernandes’ powerful header, with the Portuguese then putting his side ahead when his cross – intended for Marcus Rashford – ended up in the back of the net.

Fernandes capped off a fine individual display when setting up substitute Edinson Cavani for his first United goal in injury time.

As a result, United have moved up to 13th in the table after recording a seventh straight away win in the league – their best run for 27 years – while Everton missed out on the chance to go top after a third loss in a row.
