Everton Coach Frank Lampard praise the 37-year-old after the match: ‘It is stunning.
‘He’s definitely one of the greatest players of the game, in an era when we have had himself and Lionel Messi.
‘The comparison is irrelevant; they are both incredible players in football history.
‘What they have achieved is absolutely abnormal. At 699, I wanted him to score in the Europa League but it didn’t happen.’
The 2-1 Everton win moved Manchester United into fifth on the Premier League table and one point behind Chelsea.
