Jose Mourinho has offered his support to misfiring striker Romelu Lukaku as the Belgium global prepares to face his former club Everton. That poor run is in sharp contrast to his form at the same stage last campaign, when he had already netted 11 times.
"But when we have the ball, we have to be ourselves, we have to play to score goals".
"After we carried on and had other chances, most important thing was the win".
The theme of the build-up to the match from Everton's perspective had been Marco Silva's assertion that he would take his side to Manchester looking to beat the erratic Red Devils and that showed in a decent opening during which they forced the first save the contest. 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.
"I think one of the best scorers in football had amusing words about it".
Jordan Pickford impressively kept out Pogba's initial effort, but the midfielder's stuttering run-up was spared from more scrutiny as he rolled in a fortunate rebound.
Pickford made the games first real save in the 23rd minute beating a Martial blast away for a corner that came to nothing.
The visitors did eventually pull one back when Sigurdsson converted a penalty with 13 minutes to go, but United held on to claim a win that moves them above Everton and five points off the top four.
Pogba baby-stepped his way up to the ball in near slow-motion, taking an incredible 26 steps before making contact with the ball... The Frenchman could've grabbed his second brace in two Premier League outings, but he hesitated when he found himself one-on-one with Pickford near the end of the game.
Pogba's goal came on 27 minutes, with the midfielder then setting up fellow-countryman Martial, who produced an outstanding curling first-time finish. Sigurdsson and Richarlison combine to send Bernard free.
Gueye intercepting a loose pass played in Richarlison for a low shot that De Gea saved at the foor of his left hand post. He surges into the area but sees his rising effort brush the fingertips of De Gea on its way over.
It was when Martial made the most of Gueye's tackle three minutes later that Moss gifted Paul Pogba the chance to put Jose Mourinho's men ahead.
