Jose Mourinho warns Paul Pogba to change his penalty-taking technique

Jose Mourinho warns Paul Pogba to change his penalty-taking technique

Paul Pogba didn't do much to settle the home fans' nerves in the 27th minute however, as he assumed penalty duties in the league for the fourth time this season.

Pogba's future at struggling Premier League giants United is uncertain following claims of a falling out with embattled manager Jose Mourinho. There was certainly minor contact, but the plunge by Martial was uncalled for and even Graeme Souness and Jamie Redknapp felt it was a harsh call.

Next up for Manchester United is a trip to high-flying Bournemouth, who dispatched Fulham 3-0 on Saturday.

Whilst Rashford, who had taken Lukaku's place, did not get on the scoresheet himself, he stretched Everton's defence throughout.

The enigma that is Paul Pogba. "At the moment he is playing very well". An all-action display saw him contribute greatly to the attack, with his goal and assist reward for strong running and smart vision.

Between the ball being placed on the spot and Pickford's save, 24-seconds elapsed. It set up a nervy and avoidable finale and was another example of why the highly-talented star continues to divide opinion.

The margin should ultimately have been greater but Martial finally let his standard slip in the 94th minute, failing to beat Pickford in a one-on-one. He was a constant danger on the left and capped his overall performance with what proved to be a sublime victor.

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

The French forward won the penalty for Pogba's first-half goal and produced a moment of sheer quality when he curled the ball beyond the despairing Jordan Pickford. The tackle was clumsy, but the Everton midfielder appeared to get a touch on the ball. Martial doubles the home side's lead.

Gueye intercepting a loose pass played in Richarlison for a low shot that De Gea saved at the foor of his left hand post. The goal was gaping.

Martial excelled in his debut season for the "Red Devils" in 2015, after being signed for £58million from Monaco, making him the most expensive teenager in the world at that time.

77' - GOAL! Man United 2-1 Everton.

Everton created openings of their own, with Gylfi Sigurdsson and Theo Walcott both finding space on the edge of the area, but their efforts were tame and held by De Gea.

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.

Martial should have made it 3-1 deep in stoppage time for United after going through on goal, his effort was thwarted by Pickford.
