Jose Mourinho gives Anthony Martial some off-pitch advice

Goals from Pogba - on the rebound from his missed penalty - and Anthony Martial was enough to claim the three points for Jose Mourinho's side, with Glyfi Sigurdsson scoring for the visitors.

Martial's latest contribution came in the 2-1 win over Everton, winning a first half penalty before netting the key second goal after the break with a curling strike.

Martial has scored four in his last three Premier League matches and is the team's joint top scorer this season across all competitions.

This was Manchester United's best display this season and a second win in eight matches was much needed.

Sky Sports News has been told Martial rejected a contract renewal offer from the club but that talks will continue in pursuit of an agreement. I think it is a penalty. Yes, Bolt runs the 100m faster than Pogba does to reach the ball while taking a penalty.

Although Mourinho praised the midfielder for wanting to take the penalty, he fears goalkeepers are able to read where he is going to place them and Pogba admitted after the game that he needs to rethink his run-up. They were invited into the dressing rooms to take photos with some of the most famous players at the club and, possibly in world football, including Paul Pogba, the French star.

"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.

Though Martial's contract is due to run out in 2019 a clause exists which allows United to extend the deal by another 12 months.

They are five points off the top-four and now nine points behind Premier League leaders and arch-rivals Liverpool.

For goals and assists, he has a comparable record to Sadio Mane or Willian, two of the highest-rated players in their positions in the Premier League. "I am happy with boys who are improving".

"We are not as solid as I would like, we are not as rock solid as I would like, we don't have the killer instinct I would like", he added.
