Fellaini, Neville & more: Twitter reacts as Everton, Man United win
Charlie Adam, Marouane Fellaini and Gary Neville tweet their thoughts as Stoke City, Everton and Manchester United all win
Javier Hernández inspired Manchester United to a comeback at Villa Park after the Mexican striker scored twice in a 3-2 victory over Aston Villa.
Meanwhile, Everton kept up their pursuit of fourth place with a 2-1 win against Sunderland, while Stoke City heaped further misery on Queens Park Rangers, and Arsenal were held to a 3-3 draw by Fulham.
Here is the best of the reaction from the professionals on Twitter.
Everton midfielder Steven Pienaar (@therealstevenpi) is frustrated by his own performances recently: “If things are not going your way, you have to put a shift in and that’s what I’m doing. Bit too eager to give a fancy pass. It was tough day at the office but we came through and that’s important. Three points that all that counts.”
Pienaar’s team-mate John Heitinga (@Johnheitinga) pays credit to the Toffees supporters: “Great comeback #Everton against #Sunderland. YESSS! You made it possible! Great support of our fans! #COYB”
Everton centre-half Sylvain Distin (@sylvaind15tin) is also pleased: “Well deserved three points…once again we showed some great character and determination!”

Celebrity Arsenal fan Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) wants a managerial change: “16pts from 11 games: “Arsenal’s worst start to League season in 30yrs. At what point is it NOT ‘sacrilege’ to want a new manager? #WengerOut”
