What Gary Neille said about Paul Pogba's penalty was spot on

Pogba's dithering 28-step run-up did not fool Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford during United's win at Old Trafford. Maybe they know how I take penalties.

It was a role reversal for United's second as Martial gloriously curled a Pogba pass into the bottom-right corner within four minutes of the restart.

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

The hosts veered from passive to purposeful in an opening period that Everton started well.

The enigma that is Paul Pogba.

"OK he's a fantastic player and he scored a fantastic second goal as well but in that moment it should have been a yellow card to Martial".

'Luke Shaw was strong and these people were good to him and now Anthony is becoming a better player'.

The strikers who spearheaded Belgium's run to the World Cup semifinals were missing when Chelsea and Manchester United took to the field for their Premier League games on Monday (NZT). It set up a nervy and avoidable finale and was another example of why the highly-talented star continues to divide opinion. The forward is in a rich-vein of form and on this evidence, United will be keen to come to a quick agreement on his contract talks. He was a constant danger on the left and capped his overall performance with what proved to be a sublime victor. Subs: Lookman 6, Tosun 5, Calvert-Lewin 5.




Everton scored its goal, and had its best period of the game, when Lukaku was on the field as a substitute.

Pickford claimed he had telegraphed exactly what Pogba was planning and the Frenchman is ready to tinker with his style in future after also missing at Burnley earlier in the season.

Martial made the most of a tackle from Idrissa Gana Gueye just after twenty minutes which fooled referee Jonathan Moss into giving the home side a penalty. "The most important thing is when the ball goes in". Richarlison springs into life, seizing upon Gueye's forward ball and jinking at three defenders before firing in a low effort that De Gea does well to get down and block by his left-hand post.

49' - GOAL! Man United 2-0 Everton. Martial doubles the home side's lead. The rapid pace of the game seemed to inhibit the Serbian's natural game and he was often bypassed by the likes of Sigurdsson and Richarlison.

United fans were soon celebrating again - albeit this time at the visiting supporters' misfortune as Bernard beat the offside trap, rounded David De Gea, only to hit the side-netting. The goal was gaping. Rashford is sent clear.

United went on to win the game 2-1, but Pogba admitted that he had been "lucky" and suggested that he will attempt a new technique in the future.

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. The penalty was awarded after Smalling brought down Richarlison.
