Match ends, Everton Women 0, Manchester United Women 5.
Manchester United returned to winning ways and maintained their unbeaten start to their Women’s Super League campaign with a comfortable success away at Everton.
United were knocked out of the Champions League by Paris St-Germain in midweek but summer signing Melvine Malard set the Reds on course for victory early on as she nodded past Courtney Brosnan to collect her second league goal of the season.
The hosts’ chances were limited, although Nicoline Sorensen came close when she blasted over the bar in the first half and Hanna Bennison had an effort from range tipped over the crossbar.
United were the livelier of the two sides going forwards and Brosnan was forced into a clever save to stop a glancing Nikita Parris effort shortly before the break.
But Parris managed to get the better of the Everton goalkeeper in the second half as Brosnan was unable to palm away the United forward’s powerful close-range header.
Rachel Williams put the game to bed as she extended her side’s advantage after coming on as a substitute, bundling past Brosnan on the goal-line despite an initial save.
Williams wasn’t done, however, and headed home a Jayde Riviere cross to score her side’s fourth, securing her double after just 12 minutes on the pitch.
Parris then chipped the goalkeeper to add a late fifth in injury time.
