Manchester United facing problems in attack and defence - Jose Mourinho

Everton tasted familiar defeat at Old Trafford but it was a result that owed much to poor officiating as well as some wayward finishing by the Blues as they chased the game in the second half.

Martial was excellent in the game as he won us a penalty and scored a brilliant goal to give us a 2-0 lead.

Pickford came up big again to save Pogba's penalty but the midfielder converted on the rebound as the keeper was only able to palm the ball back to him. Even if he doesn't score, to create what he is creating, it is a solid performance for the team. No penalty. It's not a penalty and that made them more comfortable.

On 25 minutes, Evertonian pre-game fears were realised as John Moss awarded United a penalty after Martial when down theatrically under a challenge from Gana Gueye. Sigurdsson stepped up and smashed the penalty into the top-corner, halving the deficit.

United, meanwhile, held a minute's silence before kick-off, in joint memory of Remembrance Sunday and the helicopter crash on Saturday evening involving the aircraft belonging to Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

With Romelu Lukaku relegated to the bench for United's game against Everton, all eyes were on how the Red Devils' front three would perform without the Belgian striker.

"OK he's a fantastic player and he scored a fantastic second goal as well but in that moment it should have been a yellow card to Martial".

Virat Kohli’s Journey from 1,000 to 10,000 Runs in ODI Cricket
Indian skipper Virat Kohli on Wednesday became the fastest cricketer to touch the 10,000-run mark in the one-day global format. In Guwahati, riding on centuries by Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, India wrapped up the match with nearly 8 overs to spare.

Paul Pogba wasn't all lovely football as he gave away the ball for the ball from which Everton earned their penalty, which sparked hopes of a comeback for the visitors. Let off for the Red Devils.

Pogba gave away the ball cheaply in midfield, allowing Sigurdsson to put Richarlison through on goal, who was brought down clumsily by Chris Smalling in the box. Sigurdsson and Richarlison combine to send Bernard free. On Sunday afternoon's showing, there could be some validity to this.

Silva's decision was to stick with the latter and it did not pay off.

Mourinho will perhaps take some comfort from Man Utd's fine record against Everton.

There were some decent performances at Old Trafford, and here are the player ratings from the game. The tackle was clumsy, but the Everton midfielder appeared to get a touch on the ball. The Brazilian raced onto a defence-splitting pass and skipped around De Gea but put his shot into the side-netting when trying to squeeze it between the post and Victor Lindelof on the line. This was the final straw for Marco Silva as he chose to hook the winger in favour of Ademola Lookman.

Pogba's future at struggling Premier League giants United is uncertain following claims of a falling out with embattled manager Jose Mourinho.
