Martial stars: Manchester United player ratings from 2-1 Everton win

Pogba, whose converted a few penalties this season, did his customary run-up where he slowly jogs up to the spot before hitting the ball.

Anthony Martial starred as Manchester United overcame a late scare to edge Everton 2-1 at Old Trafford and give Jose Mourinho a much-needed second win in eight matches.

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.

Everton manager Marco Silva lamented the flashpoint as a turning point in the game and believes his side did not deserve to walk away empty-handed.

Chris Smalling, on his 300th United appearance, made their task more hard than it should have been when his rash challenge allowed Gylfi Sigurdsson to halve the deficit from the spot, but the hosts held firm to quickly move on from their limp Champions League loss to Juventus in midweek.

On 25 minutes, Evertonian pre-game fears were realised as John Moss awarded United a penalty after Martial when down theatrically under a challenge from Gana Gueye.

'The thing I like is the desire to take it, ' Mourinho said.

"I don't like Mickey Mouses: fragile, afraid to go, I don't take penalties". He can take 62 steps if he wants.

Martial was excellent in the game as he won us a penalty and scored a brilliant goal to give us a 2-0 lead. "I always try to improve, I always try to play and find a solution because I think we have the ability to play".

"I respect the referee and our opponent but the feeling is not good because the player dived in that moment. But sometimes it's true that I have to clear the ball and just relieve the pressure on the team". Yes, we are good friends. Some teams without the ball, can resist and keep a clean sheet all the time.

"But for us in this moment it is is nearly impossible to keep a clean sheet even with the phenomenal goalkeeper we have". It was hard for us. Lukaku may be United's top scorer, but with him in the side, their play is often so tiresome and predictable.

Having won two and drawn one of their last three league games, United seem to have regained some form after a poor start to the campaign.

"He took quite a long time to understand what we want, quite a long time for his brain and body to be ready for how we want him to play", Mourinho said. When the France global was good, he was very good - but there were moments that had everyone scratching their heads.
