The post-match press conference focused on the Wayne Rooney transfer issue. 

“I heard your question ... good” was how Moyes responded to a question about Rooney's future at United. However Moyes did not elaborate.

Robin van Persie opened the scoring with a header at six minutes.

Marouane Fellaini may transfer to Unitedl. He was left out of the Everton side against Real Betis.

Van Persie scored the second goal, a left foot shot that deflected off James Perch on the way past Carson.

After the match, Van Persie was asked whether he could break his record of 30 goals last season.

“It’s not about breaking records, it is about winning trophies,” he replied.

Wilfried Zaha came off limping after an hour and Moyes said that he was not certain of the injury or Zaha would be fit to play for England against Scotland on Wednesday night.

Rooney is in training with the England squad and Moyes says that he expects him to play a “chunk” of Wednesday’s friendly, as befits a player who has missed so much of pre-season with injury.
