Mourinho praises Pogba’s penalty courage in much-needed Man Utd win

Eight days after spearheading United's turnaround at Chelsea, 22-year-old Martial starred again with an influential performance in the 2-1 win over Everton.

Jose Mourinho has been reluctant to drop Romelu Lukaku in the past due to the lack of options the club has on the flanks.

The French midfielder then turned provider for compatriot, Martial to net his fourth goal in his last three league appearances with a sensational first-time effort just after the interval.

However, The 25-year-old Belgium worldwide has failed to find the back of the net in his last eight (now nine) matches and has not scored at Old Trafford since late March. In football it's hard to feed that relation with managers, because our life is not an easy one and it's not like we can have conversations or be together every day or every week, but he's a good boy.

A United free kick following a foul by Zouma on Rashford led to a cross from the left by Martial that saw a Mata header comfortably dealt with by Pickford. It is quite clear by now that the club wants to keep him but with his contract expiring next summer, many other clubs are interested too.

Sell Lukaku. We don't need him.

Lineker wrote on Twitter during the game: "Terrific finish from Martial. I am doing my best to help the team".

Paul Pogba broke the deadlock for Jose Mourinho's charges in the 27th minute from the penalty spot, tucking home from close range after his initial strike was saved by Pickford.

Graeme Souness, Jamie Redknapp and Alex Scott reflect on the big talking points from Manchester United's win over Everton.

Pogba and Martial netted either side of half-time as United emerged 2-1 victors against Marco Silva's Everton side, although Gylfi Sigurdsson's penalty brought a nervy conclusion to Sunday's game.

Between the ball being placed on the spot and Pickford's save, 24-seconds elapsed. 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. Rashford is sent clear.

Everton were then gifted a way back into proceedings with 13 minutes remaining after Pogba gave away possession as stupidly as the sliding challenge that followed from Smalling on Richarlison inside the box.

A great Everton move down the right ended with a Seamus Coleman cross that picked out Sigurdsson but his header was straight down De Gea's throat while Theo Walcott was denied by the Spaniard at the end of the first half. He surges into the area but sees his rising effort brush the fingertips of De Gea on its way over.

STAR MAN - Realistically, this label should be shared between Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial.
