Match Commentary

- That is all from here but make sure you follow our live commentary of tonight's African Nations Cup final between Nigeria and Burkina Faso. Kick-off is 1830GMT.
- A great weekend then for United, who go 12 points clear at the top of the Premier League after Manchester City slipped up against Southampton yesterday.
- A very comfortable half for United, who looked in complete control, while Everton struggled to threaten. Van Persie's goal was decisive as up until then the Toffees looked like threatening a comeback, only for it to knock the wind out of them.
