That's it. Halsey blows the whistle to signal full-time and it's a deserved and comfortable 2-0 win for Manchester United, who go 12 points clear in the title race with 12 games to go. Giggs and RVP with the goals, job done. They go into their Champions League tie with Real Madrid in great heart. Thanks for joining us.
Fellaini lets his frustration boil over as he concedes another foul, this time on Cleverley, and he's cautioned.
Smalling comes on for good Evans.
Jelavic comes on for Anichebe as Everton make a change. Meanwhile, Carrick replaces Phil Jones for Man United.
Thomas says: 'Hi Ben, Everton are still in this one, Jelavic could finish off the chances we are creating, and with a bit of luck, and good performances from Fellani, Baines and Pienaar we may be able to pull off the impossible. Let's not forget what happened last season.... COYB!'
Henry in Salisbury says: 'Hi Ben, I think Everton still have a chance in the second half and that Moyes must introduce Jelavic. Fellaini and Jelavic (2) to score for Everton in the 2nd half with RVP getting another for United. A big shout out to my mate Zak at the game. COYB!'
Lauren Watson isn't giving up yet. She says: 'C'mon Everton, the second half has got to be our half, we've got to pull through! Come on you blues!'
Jones hobbles away after a tough challenge. De Gea kicks it forward and Halsey blows the whistle to signal the end of the first period. Everton came back into it with plenty of pressure following Giggs' opener, but they couldn't make it pay and RVP hit them with a sucker-punch right at the end of the half. 2-0 at the break.
VAN PERSIE! RVP is onside this time from a Rafael through ball, he rounds Tim Howard and this time he finds the net, despite the sliding, desperate lunge of Heitinga. 2-0.
Mirallas goes in the book for a foul on Cleverley. Nothing comes of the resulting United free-kick.
GIGGS! Ryan Giggs opens the scoring with a neat finish in off the post after RVP played him in. No more than United deserve, 1-0.
Betting news: Jonathan Witty from Sky Bet says: 'With United's line-up much more familiar than their suspected 'weakened' XI touted by many in the build-up to this game, United have been heavily-backed to 7/10 to extend their lead at the top to 12 points with a win over Everton. David Moyes' men are 15/4 to win, the draw is 14/5 and another 4-4 stalemate is 150/1. Wayne Rooney is price boosted to 9/2 to score the opening goal against his former club.'
Christopher Peddie says: 'Man United will hopefully make the most of City's slip up yesterday. It won't be as easy as some may think, particularly with Real Madrid next on the radar. I wouldn't be surprised to see a draw but would be happy with a win. I can see a 3-2 on the cards !! Would have liked to see Anderson and Hernandez starting. Still...promises to be a good game. Looking forward to it !'
Dylan in New York says: 'Everton need a win after Spurs and Arsenal picked up 3 points yesterday. Look for the Toffees to attack early and often, and win this game 2-1 behind goals from Pienaar and Baines. GO EVERTON!!!!!!!!'
Palmer says: 'Hi Palmer here, United fan. I think this will be a strong team which will be playing again on Wednesday. Everton is a strong side and they can repeat what they did last season.'
Josh says: 'Going to be such a hard game today, but I reckon Fergie is going to push for that 12-point gap, I reckon either 1-1 or 2-1 united RVP getting United's goals with Fellaini getting Everton's.'
Rafee says: ''Can't wait to see RVP and Wayne destroy Everton...where's Carrick, has to be his best season for Man Utd.'
Phil Bebbington says: 'Rooney hates to play Everton. He won't score today. Anichebe to settle it. Everton 1-0.'
Adam Willers says: 'Hi Adam here, Man United fan. I feel this really is a must win today to take advantage of City losing to Southampton yesterday, considering our strong line up I am going for a 3-0 win today with van Persie scoring 2 and Rooney getting 1 against his former club. But we need to be careful with our strong line up so we don't lose any crucial players for the Real Madrid match on Wednesday, and our upcoming FA cup match.'
Betting news: Manchester United are 7/10 with Sky Bet to land the three points today with the draw 14/5 and Everton 15/4. The Red Devils love to come from behind and Everton HT- Man Utd FT is 18/1 while RVP to score first and United to win either 2-1 or 3-1 has been boosted to 12/1. Personally, I'd be all over the Wayne Rooney to score first priceboost (9/2). He's scoring regularly at the moment and he's always been streaky. He is in a good streak at present.
Marc Jones says: 'Ferguson fielding a strong team for United today, 3-1 the outcome, too strong for Everton, Rooney 2, RVP 1.'
Thomas Williams says: 'Fancy United to get one hand on the title today, a vintage performance of turning on the style when it matters and battering Everton to make a real statement!'
