Manchester United returned to the Premier League’s top four for the first time in more than a year as Radamel Falcao’s first United goal proved decisive against Everton.

Angel Di Maria’s calm finish gave the hosts a lead that survived to half-time as Leighton Baines saw a penalty saved.

Baines picked out Steven Naismith to nod in an equaliser and Falcao cleared a Phil Jagielka header off the line.

But Falcao stabbed in from Di Maria’s shot to grab the decisive goal.
