Martial stars: Manchester United player ratings from 2-1 Everton win

Pogba returning to Juve would be wonderful – Nedved

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has admitted his culpability for the goal that Everton scored in Sunday's Premier League meeting between the teams.

Jose Mourinho has offered his support to misfiring striker Romelu Lukaku as the Belgium global prepares to face his former club Everton.

Having won two and drawn one of their last three league games, United seem to have regained some form after a poor start to the campaign.

However, The 25-year-old Belgium global 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.

He then proceeded to set up Martial for United's second of the night with a neat lay-off.

Talk of crisis and the need for a managerial change may have dissipated at Old Trafford but the importance of a win remained having been outclassed by Juventus in the Champions League and frustrated late on at Chelsea.

"I believe that at the end of December we will be in a completely different position in the table", the United boss said. "That is the way I think it is going now".

Lineker wrote on Twitter during the game: "Terrific finish from Martial".

Pogba shot United into the lead after 27 minutes, although he needed a large slice of luck to convert after his penalty was superbly saved by Jordan Pickford. 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.

Pogba's penalty was then atrocious, straight down the middle and at a saveable height for Pickford in the Everton goal.

Anthony Martial did make it 2-0 for United four minutes after the break with a stunning first-time curling strike into the bottom corner from the edge of the box. Coleman and Gana Gueye dealt well with a right wing raid by Martial before Walcott pressured Lindelof into a mistake to find Sigurdsson whose cross for Bernard was just a tad too strong.

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

Everton spurned a glorious chance to reduce the arrears and get back in the game as Richarlison found Sigurdsson and he released Bernard to run in and round De Gea before inexplicably hitting the side netting with the goal gaping. He surges into the area but sees his rising effort brush the fingertips of De Gea on its way over.

Ander Herrera, Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, Ashley Young, Andreas Pereira and Fred also met the young players, whose predicament attracted worldwide attention last summer.

Sigurdsson pulls one back for the visitors as he sends De Gea the wrong way from the spot.
