Pogba, meanwhile, admitted he could change his approach.

Looking to build upon the recent upturn in results and with a fully fit squad to choose from, Marco Silva appeared to be in a much better situation but was no doubt wary of any degree of complacency setting in with his Everton squad.

The Belgian striker has been on a poor run of form and hasn't scored in his last eight games. "But sometimes it's true that I have to clear the ball and just relieve the pressure on the team".

It has been another inconsistent season for Pogba, who has scored four goals in all competitions heading into Monday's visit of Everton.

Jose Mourinho has been reluctant to drop Romelu Lukaku in the past due to the lack of options the club has on the flanks.

"And if later he comes into game he came be positive, make a difference and back into normality". Coleman and Gana Gueye dealt well with a right wing raid by Martial before Walcott pressured Lindelof into a mistake to find Sigurdsson whose cross for Bernard was just a tad too strong.

United have shown weaknesses defending corners recently, and almost fell behind from another in the 15th minute, but Andre Gomes' free header was saved by David De Gea.

The margin should ultimately have been greater but Martial finally let his standard slip in the 94th minute, failing to beat Pickford in a one-on-one.

After a quiet start to the game, the first chance of the game fell for Andre Gomes in the 14th for the Toffees with a free-header inside the box that was comfortably collected by United goalkeeper David de Gea.

Jordan Pickford showed both mental and physical strength as he waited patiently for Paul Pogba to take the spot kick, which the Everton keeper saved with his left hand, but the Frenchman was able to slot home the rebound.

Everton nearly found an immediate response three minutes later, but Bernard, having rounded De Gea, inexplicably missed the target with the goal gaping. In terms of my approach to my young players, that's the way I am.

And Martial made it 2-0 when he curled home a brilliant first-time finish to put Manchester United in control. The penalty was awarded after Smalling brought down Richarlison.

The Spaniard came on to replace the hard-working Mata. Rashford is sent clear. He surges into the area but sees his rising effort brush the fingertips of De Gea on its way over.

"It was not a penalty, clearly the player dived, it leaves a bad sensation".

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.

Theo Walcott looked nearly paralysed this evening as he failed to make an impression on the right side of Everton's attacking trident. I am happy with boys who are improving. "You are more exposed then because you have to take more risks".
