Rooney ended his 13-year spell at United last season and made a return to Everton on a free transfer. "He is a real legend of this club (Man United)". Of course, Lukaku isn't the only former Everton player in the building - Marouane Fellaini has become a key player for Mourinho, and he is [4.4] to score his third goal in four games.
Paul Ince is backing Manchester United to beat Everton in what the retired midfielder considers to be "the game of the week".
But he explained: "His [Fellaini's at Everton] mistake previous year was the kind of mistake I accept", Mourinho said. Three wins and a draw in four games means that the Red Devils are leading the English Premier League on goal difference.
"I think he'll put it to the back of his mind", Lingard told MUTV.
It says a lot that the Belgian has scored more goals this season for club and country than Everton have as an entire club.
It proved particularly costly in the Premier League as they stumbled home sixth having netted just 54 goals - a goal ratio of 1.42 that has improved to an average of three per game in the opening weeks of this season.
Thumbs up, thumbs down: Clemson-Auburn
Auburn's 14-6 deficit certainly felt larger after the Tigers sacked Stidham on back-to-back dropbacks to force a three-and-out. That Clemson defense has a big challenge Saturday, facing Lamar Jackson, Louisville's Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback.
Marouane Fellaini was brought on to replace the French global and the Belgian proved why he is so important to Jose Mourinho by putting United ahead before setting up Marcus Rashord later in the second half.
The Dutchman has said that instead of signing a target man, they've added different types of strikers. But it's too easy to talk about the striker.
"So it's not just the striker. I think fans recognise that".
"He [Lukaku] is playing well, the team is playing well and there is a good understanding between them", he said.
"When a team doesn't create a lot, when a team doesn't have the ball, when a team is just reactive, it is more hard for these players (in attacking positions). We couldn't be happier (with him)".
Mourinho refused to enter into any debate as to how Lukaku and Ibrahimovic compare.
"I don't know how many [games], but we are going to play without Pogba for a few matches but we have other players". Everton have gone into a tailspin, and although Koeman remains confident the decline won't last, I'd be very surprised if Old Trafford provides the light at the end of the tunnel.
