In an otherwise underwhelming fixture, Manchester United forward Anthony Martial has broken the deadlock to give his side a 1-0 lead over visitors Everton.
The two sides found themselves cautiously sparring for the first 50 minutes, with neither able to outmanoeuvre the opposing defence and consequentially failing to produce a single shot on target between them.
But some shrewd play from Juan Mata and youngster Timothy Fosu-Mensah on the right-hand side eventually amalgamated in a driven cross from the later, which Martial latched onto at the far post as Toffees defender Seamus Coleman failed to clear his lines.
The point-blank finish certainly wasn’t a Goal of the Season contender – or for that matter, even a Goal of the Weekend contender – but it has nonetheless given Manchester United a vital lead in their pursuit of a win that will move them just one point behind fourth-placed rivals Manchester City.
It was also the 1000th Premier League goal at Old Trafford, a rather incredible landmark that no other club in the division has reached before. Consequentially, Red Devils fans on Twitter are pretty chuffed. Here are some of their best reactions.

Fosu-Mensah looks so promising. He was quality in our build up to Martial's goal, could be a superb player for us in a few years time.

Landmark goal scored by a footballer that was marked as waste of money before he even kicked a ball in England.
