De Gea for Bale?

BBC Radio 5 live

606 host Ian Wright: "I think when Real Madrid come in they will get David De Gea and so if Manchester United can do the deal to get Gareth Bale they should do it. De Gea can make saves but Bale can score goals and make assists."

Player reaction

Everton 3-0 Newcastle

Everton skipper Phil Jagielka: "We knew we needed to start picking up points and we did that today. Thirty-one points isn't good enough for us but that's what we've got and we need to move on. We are used to seeing ourselves on the first page [of the table], we have been in the bottom half for too long."

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal: "This was a massive game after losing to Arsenal. Besides the first five minutes we had control of the match, scored beautiful goals and didn't give much away. Arsenal was a big blow but I had a very good feeling when the players showed at training the same spirit as before. I've had 25 years as a manager and I've seen that players after a defeat are not always like that."

"Despite all the Wayne Rooney fun, it is rubbish that you can't have a bit of privacy at home. Unless there's a crime, whose business is it?"

Wayne Rooney defended himself after United's 3-0 win following claims in a national newspaper that he was knocked out at his home while boxing with friend and Sunderland defender Phil Bardsley.

Nick Rodriguez: Newcastle are not the same team without Alan Pardew at the helm. The fans wanted him out and look at their downfall. Palace's gain.

Mickey Wallis: Still fully expect neither Manchester United or Spurs to regain Champions League football next year. Neither are good enough consistently.

Newcastle boss John Carver: "Even 11 v 11 we were second best, we started brightly, and had a chance of a penalty but we don't get those so that's no surprise. We had our best chances when we went to down 10-man and the loss of Fabricio Coloccini for the next three games is even more disappointing. I've looked at it from four or five angles and I'm not totally convinced. The reaction from the Everton players told me it was something serious but when I've looked at it I wasn't convinced."

Jamie Watson: For the first time in nearly two years I've enjoyed watching a Man Utd game! Great first-half, professional second-half.

Sam Burnett: If Manchester United can play like that for the rest of the season, then top four will be a doddle.

Teez: Spurs might have to stop relying on one player to carry them all season. Massive clear-out needed.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal on BBC Radio 5 live: "We can be very pleased with the performance, the result and our reaction to the defeat against Arsenal. When you get a blow like that from Arsenal you need a fantastic team spirit and individual spirit, and I saw that.

"When you score goals, your confidence raises and you can pass more quickly, but Tottenham wanted to play also and you always need two teams who want to play and you have more space to play football.

"Michael Carrick is not not my second captain for nothing. He is one of the best passes also, not only wide but also forward. We need midfielders who have that passing. When you can also score the second goal you have a big influence in the game."

Player reaction - Rooney's celebration

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney, speaking to Sky Sports: "That's the world we live in today. It's in my own home, it's not public, it's what friends do - they mess around in the house. It was a couple of mates in a private house, and somehow it's managed to get on the front page of a national newspaper. I've just been focussed on the game, it's more interesting for other people rather than for me. You've seen today, I've done a professional job and helped my team win 3-0."

Everton goalscorer Romelu Lukaku: "Everyone was pumped up for this game and as soon as we came on the pitch I thought we would win. It was important to be 2-0 up, Newcastle are a good team going forward and as soon as we got the second we had control of the game."

Manchester United 3-0 Tottenham

BBC summariser Robbie Savage at Old Trafford on BBC Radio 5 live

"Manchester United blew Spurs away with front-foot football. You came into the game thinking Tottenham could get something but they have disappointed.

"I think Spurs are out of the race now. Six points behind United and not playing well. I didn't think they would get in top four anyway but even more so on that performance. I said I think United would finish fifth but after today it is going to go down to the wire."

FULL-TIME

Everton 3-0 Newcastle

Great win for Everton ahead of their Europa League trip to Ukraine next week. One win in six league games for Newcastle now.

GOAL

Everton 3-0 Newcastle - Ross Barkley

Barkley

Substitute Ross Barkley puts the icing on Everton's cake as he races on to Christian Atsu pass and slots past te oncoming Tim Krul. Lovely finish from the young midfielder.

FULL-TIME

Manchester United 3-0 Tottenham

Knockout display from Wayne Rooney and Manchester United. Louis van Gaal's side move two points behind second-placed neighbours Manchester City.

Manchester United 3-0 Tottenham

Harry Kane has just had his first real sight at goal. He gets his shot away but David De Gea beats his close range effort away. Two additional minutes.

Manchester United 3-0 Tottenham

BBC summariser Robbie Savage at Old Trafford on BBC Radio 5 live

"Michael Carrick has been the difference today - forward thinking, forward passing. He set up Fellaini and scored his goal. A very, very good afternoon for Carrick, who would be one of the first names on the team sheet when he is fit."

CLOSE!

Big chance for Arouna Kone to make it 3-0 at Goodison but Tim Krul comes rushing off his line to frustrate the Everton striker. Kone should have done better.

Another rare sighting at Old Trafford after Radamel Falcao and Emmanuel Adebayor. On comes Rafael for Michael Carrick.

FIVE MINUTES TO GO

Sounds as though Newcastle fans are far from happy. Total opposite at Old Trafford. Each touch by a player in a red shirt is being cheered. It's almost like the United of old.

Ross Arnett: Everton have far from deserved their lead but Newcastle's few mistakes have been punished.

David Penn: Newcastle, as usual, making poor opposition look like world beaters. And the captain sent off. No pressure though, eh Carver?

David Ljunggren: The only good point about this humiliating Newcastle performance is that it cuts Carver's chances of getting the manager's job.
