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

Pogba returning to Juve would be wonderful – Nedved

Mourinho and Martial have fallen out on more than one occasion during their time together, but the United manager has suggested that it is the Frenchman's camp who are at fault for the player's inconsistent performances.

But a relieved Mourinho praised Pogba after the game for having the mental strength to take the 27th minute penalty.

At the other end, Juan Mata had a similar chance from Martial's delivery and Jordan Pickford had to parry away a stinging drive from the French forward as the home side began to exert some pressure.

Organised the back four with authority for most of the game but gave away an bad penalty, unnecessarily lunging in the box to give Everton a route back into the game. Sigurdsson and Richarlison combine to send Bernard free.

Anthony Martial has rejected several offers to renew his contract by Man Utd.

There were some decent performances at Old Trafford, and here are the player ratings from the game.

The Spaniard did a good job at the start of the game, but his passing and movement were off in the last 20 minutes or so. The Red Devils' 35 wins in this fixture is a Premier League record by a club against a single opponent, while the Toffees have won just twice at Old Trafford since the Premier League was formed in 1992.

Everton can be definitely be aggrieved with the referee for having wrongly awarded United the penalty which made it 1-0.

Pogba had a moment of madness as well, giving up the ball for Everton's late penalty given away by Chris Smalling, but will be forgiven for the time being as United clung on to secure a victory at full time.

The shuffle didn't help the World Cup victor as Jordan Pickford was equal to his shot; luckily for Pogba his parry landed back at his feet and he was able to pass the ball home.

Lukaku had a number of chances to make the right run or pass but failed nearly every time. He failed to make decent runs into the channels even when his colleagues behind him were carving out attacks in the midfield. He then proceeded to set up Martial for United's second of the night with a neat lay-off.

Everton were quicker out of the traps in the second half as well and Richarlison forced a save from De Gea with smart footwork and a low shot that the keeper gathered at the second attempt but less than five minutes after the restart it was 2-0.

Richarilson had edged past Smalling, but the English defender was far from beaten and could have stayed on his feet to challenge the advancing Brazilian, but he opted to slide into the striker hitting everything but the ball and injuring himself in the process.

However, Everton head to Manchester with growing momentum after winning three successive Premier League games for the first time in 21 months.
