Despite the result, there were positives to be taken from the game against Everton.
Yorke and Cole were lethal together and Sir Alex sees similarities in the ‘special’ partnership between Rooney and Welbeck:
“I think last week we saw something really special.
There were a lot of reference to the Yorke and Cole thing and there were similarities. Wayne is 26, Danny is 21 and you would think that for the next few years they can only get better.”
“With Danny being fit again and playing consistently with Wayne it has developed.
“I thought Welbeck’s movement was fantastic, he played really well. Attacking wise we were terrific in the second half, really brilliant.”
