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

Having met United manager Jose Mourinho and first-team stars on Saturday, they were guests of honour as the Red Devils faced Everton in the Premier League.

However, The 25-year-old Belgium global has failed to find the back of the net in his last eight (now nine) matches and has not scored at Old Trafford since late March. It was hard for us.

Martial is yet to commit his future to United.

"After we carried on and had other chances, most important thing was the win".

"I believe that at the end of December we will be in a completely different position in the table", the United boss said.

"If we decide to give a rest to Lukaku, who plays as a striker? But sometimes it's true that I have to clear the ball and just relieve the pressure on the team". The rapid pace of the game seemed to inhibit the Serbian's natural game and he was often bypassed by the likes of Sigurdsson and Richarlison.

Graeme Souness, Jamie Redknapp and Alex Scott reflect on the big talking points from Manchester United's win over Everton.

Roger Federer was stretched to three sets for a second consecutive match to reach the Shanghai Masters quarterfinals on Thursday. Coric, who is 2-2 against Federer, also beat the 20-time Grand Slam champion in their last outing at Halle in June.

Pickford made the games first real save in the 23rd minute beating a Martial blast away for a corner that came to nothing.

Previously, Pogba had drawn criticism for his penalty run up, which saw him approach the ball with a number of stuttering, small steps, before he delivered a kick to Jordan Pickford's right, which the England goalkeeper stopped.

Pogba's goal came on 27 minutes, with the midfielder then setting up fellow-countryman Martial, who produced an outstanding curling first-time finish.

Between the ball being placed on the spot and Pickford's save, 24-seconds elapsed.

Pogba went down screaming like a stuck pig under a none challenge from Gomes, drawing a rueful shake of the head from Marco Silva, clearly fed up with the Frenchmans' posing and posturing ahead of Lukaku replacing Rashford in the 65th minute.

Sigurdsson and Richarlison then linked well to send Bernard clean through on goal and, after managing to round De Gea, the Brazilian appeared poised to convert into the open net only to hit the side-netting from a tight angle. The Toffees eventually found the net after a silly chip from Paul Pogba handed Everton a run on goal, Chris Smalling couldn't stay on his feet and brought down Richarlison in the area.

Paul Pogba wasn't all attractive football as he gave away the ball for the ball from which Everton earned their penalty, which sparked hopes of a comeback for the visitors.
