A screamer of a goal, another red card, a frustrating return for Rooney, and a stodgy game of half chances at The Bridge – it was a Super Sunday of stark contrasts.
Did you miss any of the action? Fret not. Here it all is summed up in 10 tweets…

Manchester United v Everton Re-cap
It was a day to ‘Roo’ for the Everton PR team, who failed to spot the link between Everton’s sleeve sponsor and Wazza’s latest off-pitch escapades. *Slow clap*
