Pogba, Marshal on target as Manchester United edge Everton

Pogba, Marshal on target as Manchester United edge Everton

But United held on to manage just their second win in seven games to alleviate some of the pressure on Mourinho.

Big run-ups with little steps have become a trademark of Pogba's penalties.

And on the penalty decision, Mourinho went on to explain that Pogba is more of an expert on them than he is. It was a game we didn't need to suffer as much in the last few minutes.

"I am happy again".

United endured a nervous end at Old Trafford on Sunday after conceding a 77th-minute penalty from which Gylfi Sigurdsson scored - the 17th goal United have shipped this season and three more than Newcastle who are in the bottom three. For us it is nearly an impossible mission to keep a clean sheet even with the phenomenal goalkeeper [David de Gea] we have and to score goals is really hard for us.

In the 26th minute of the game, referee Jon Moss judged that Idrissa Gueye had fouled Anthony Martial in the area and awarded United the penalty, with Paul Pogba eventually scoring after his initial spot-kick was saved by Jordan Pickford. He has the courage to take it. Luka Milivojevic missed one and he took them today.

"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".

"The keeper is also a good penalty saver so lets give credit to him".

Speaking about Pogba to Sky Italia, Nedved said he it would be wonderful if they could have the World Cup victor in their squad.

The 12 young soccer players whose rescue from a Thai cave in July captured an worldwide spotlight attended a Manchester United match and met several of the players this weekend. "He's got that good of a penalty, he's got that power in it, so you've got to go a tad early".

"They created chances, we created chances and they got that penalty which was a bit soft".

In a unusual twist, Ramsey is wanted by United but the chances of a New Year swap deal involving Mata - as happened with Alexis Sanchez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan last January - are looking unlikely with so many other interested parties.
