Everton dealt a fatal blow to Manchester United’s faint hopes of Champions League qualification with a comfortable 2-0 win at Goodison Park.

Leighton Baines set the Toffees on their way with a penalty and Kevin Mirallas added a second before half-time to ensure it was a miserable return to Merseyside for David Moyes.

Easter Sunday’s third game prompted plenty of activity on Twitter – and here are our updates, in chronological order.

Ex-Charlton man Matt Holland (@mattholland8) analyses the game: “Poor from United today. Plenty of the ball but never looked like scoring. Everton have been faster, stronger and deserved the win.”

Golfer and United fan Rory McIlroy (@McIlroyRory) is not a happy bunny: “Easter Sunday WAS going well…. What’s going on at Goodison Park!? All the possession but nowhere near clinical enough. Changes are needed”

Ex-Stoke defender Danny Higginbotham (@Higginbotham05) looks at some of the tactical options available to Moyes: “Good option could be Januzaj and Welbeck on for nani and kagawa with Welbeck playing up top with Rooney januzaj and mata behind him”

Ex-Everton man Don Hutchison (@donhutch4) has been impressed by one of the Toffees’ midfielders: “Gareth Barry has been outstanding. His positional play(not gave mata a kick) is top drawer. #2zip”

England legend Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) singles out another of the home side’s talents: “I like John Stones….a lot. England are desperately short in his position. Might be worth a wild card. He’s got everything bar experience.”

USA boss Jürgen Klinsmann (@J_Klinsmann) is impressed: “wow Everton!! Congrats !! Fantastic game by @Tim_Howard24, #USMNT”

Ex-United man Alan Tonge (@Alan_Tonge) is thoroughly unimpressed with United’s situation: “We finished 28 points in front of the scousers last season and now are currently 23 points behind. Digest the figures for a mo. What a joke.”

Former Everton defender Lee Carsley (@lecarso) adds some more praise for Roberto Martinez’s side: “Great performance so many positives all over the pitch..”

And finally, Michael Duberry (@Original_Dubes) adds to Lineker’s praise of Stones: “What a player @Everton have in young defender John Stones. very good and I think will only get better.”
