Manchester United 2 Everton 1: Martial maintains top form

  • Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho reveals why Paul Pogba must ‘change’ penalty approach | Daily Star

"I am happy again".

The young Frenchman looked extremely lively in the first period and created the opening goal as he was brought down inside the box, allowing Paul Pogba to score from the rebound after his penalty was saved from Jordan Pickford.

Muted for much of the hour he was on the pitch, Bernard's failure to make the most of a golden opportunity soon after Martial's strike denied Everton greater hope of snatching a point.

When Pogba strode up to take the penalty, he performed his by-now familiar routine of making a series of stuttering steps - no fewer than 26 in total - before seeing his shot stopped by the Everton keeper.

"Well, against Juventus to give him [Lukaku] a break, I don't think [Michael] Carrick can play as a striker", Mourinho said.

"But in these matches where you don't score, where you don't assist, where your creation is not at the high level, but you have a certain balance in your performance, that's where I think he is going well".




Jose Mourinho highlighted Manchester United's lack of "killer instinct" in front of goal and the low number of clean sheets this season as areas of concern. I don't like Mickey Mouses, fragile players who are afraid and go: 'I don't take penalties.' I don't like that.

"He's the full package if he's right, but I don't know if he doesn't want to be in Manchester or he's fallen out with the manager in pre-season because his partner has given birth, but there is a real player in there". "He's got that good of a penalty, he's got that power in it, so you've got to go a tad early". Yesterday was the first day for more than two years where two Premier League matches each had two penalties (Palace v Arsenal and United v Everton). "We had it under control even when it was 2-1", said Mourinho.

"Let's be honest, or [get to the heart] of it, which I think is fair, and say when a player plays bad it's half me and half the player, and when the player plays well it's half me and half the player".

Marco Silva's side received a penalty towards the closing stages, which Gylfi Sigurdsson duly slotted home, however, they were unable to find the second goal to give them a share of the points.

Name of the game The fixture pitting Brighton & Hove Albion against Wolverhampton Wanderers, who met on Saturday, contains the most letters of any top-flight match...

"Of course we are unhappy with the result but one penalty and one fantastic finish made the difference".
