Mourinho: Martial has learned Manchester United role

Pogba returning to Juve would be wonderful – Nedved

As United clung on to secure a much-needed victory at Old Trafford, we take a look at the talking points from the game as goals from Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba gave Jose Mourinho and his team some breathing space. Since the arrival of Jose Mourinho, the youngster has had limited first-team action and quite clearly he doesn't like the situation.

It was his fourth goal in his last three Premier League games and Mourinho said afterwards the 22-year-old is finally starting to get the most out of his undoubted talent.

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.

"But when we have the ball, we have to be ourselves, we have to play to score goals".

Martial is yet to commit his future to United.

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.

"Of course we are unhappy with the result but one penalty and one fantastic finish made the difference". And he was well aware of the weapons United possess and in particular former Blues striker Romelu Lukaku, despite him being goalless in his last six PL outings.

Everton were finally rewarded for their endeavour after 76 minutes when Pogba lost the ball to Sigurdsson and the Icelandic global sent away Richarlison who was clumsily felled by Chris Smalling for the second penalty of the game. "I am doing my best to help the team". He was lucky with the penalty, as Jordan Pickford's save came back at him to score. 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. Sigurdsson and Richarlison combine to send Bernard free. 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. The Toffees eventually found the net after a silly chip from Paul Pogba handed Everton a run on goal, Chris Smalling couldn't stay on his feet and brought down Richarlison in the area.

Sigurdsson neatly slammed the ball into the top right corner, with De Gea going low the other way to make it 2-1.

A fine run by Gomes saw him feed Coleman and then get on the end of the cross, but as with earlier headers, his effort had neither enough power or direction to overly trouble De Gea.

Paul Pogba wasn't all handsome 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.
