The Frenchman put the Red Devils 1-0 up against Everton before half-time as they went on to win 2-1 at Old Trafford.

Jose Mourinho said the reason why Romelu Lukaku has been dropped for their game against Everton is partly down to the fact that he's not just not scoring goals, but fundamentally the striker isn't showing a huge amount of confidence.

There was no dispute about Martial's second goal, after 49 minutes, as he gathered a short pass from Pogba and curled a superb 18-yard shot past Pickford.

"Pogba is a better penalty taker than myself".

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.

Everton created openings of their own, with Gylfi Sigurdsson and Theo Walcott both finding space on the edge of the area, but their efforts were tame and held by De Gea.

Mourinho spoke glowingly about his no.11 after the game and also added in an interview with MUTV: "He showed the player he can be, because [he's] a talented player - he showed that many years ago". "We are not as rock solid as I would like, we don't have that killer instinct I would like".

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.

"Some teams they have three chances and score three goals".

"I was lucky [with the penalty], the important thing is it went in and I scored the goal, good for us and me". 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. "I don't like Mickey Mouses, fragile, afraid to go, saying, 'I don't take penalties.' I like the player that says, 'I want to take it.' Maybe he has to change his approach but I don't want him to change his mental approach".

'And they scored from the penalty, but we managed to control until the end and to win'.

'Obviously in the Premier League every team has quality to hurt you, so we knew they would try to score.
