Jose Mourinho laments United’s struggle to take chances and keep clean sheets

Jose Mourinho laments United’s struggle to take chances and keep clean sheets

Sanchez missed Tuesday's Champions League defeat to Juventus with a groin problem and Jose Mourinho appeared to have ruled the Chilean out of Sunday's game as well. His penalty was saved, but he stuck in the rebound.

Unlike his countryman, Pogba started slowly but grew into the game and was fully into his stride by the time he tucked in United's penalty for the opener. We had other chances but most important was the win.

Bernard passed up a chance to drag Everton back into it before Smalling's tackle enabled Sigurdsson to grab a consolation from the spot in the 77th minute.

Jose Mourinho has offered his support to misfiring striker Romelu Lukaku as the Belgium global prepares to face his former club Everton.

"Romelu can score lots of goals, he is under pressure because he known for that.,." added Mourinho, who later replaced Marcus Rashford.on the 65th minute with Lukaku.

We have no idea what he was thinking giving away a needless penalty away. He was presented with the ideal opportunity by Pogba late on, but missed a free header from close range, much to the delight of travelling Everton fans.

MAN UTD: De Gea 7, Young 7, Shaw 6, Smalling 6, Lindelof 6, Matic 7, Pogba 7, Fred 7, Mata 7, Martial 8, Rashford 6. Ademola Lookman, Cenk Tosun and Dominic Calvert-Lewin were pushing for recalls after impressing from the bench against Palace last time out, but the Toffees are unchanged. Rashford did little to stake his claim ahead of the Belgian, however, as he was anonymous for most parts of the game, not being involved heavily despite putting the ball in from an offside position in the first half.

Pogba's ball to the edge of the box was met by a superb first-time effort by Martial, whose shot bent into the bottom corner in front of the Stretford End.

Groans around the ground ensued as Pogba took over nine seconds to strike the ball.

Anthony Martial won that penalty before curling in a sumptuous second goal after half-time.

The trio of pundits reflected on the encounter, with their topics of conversation including Paul Pogba, the key penalty decision and Martial's current form. The rebound fell kindly back to Pogba, who slotted home.

Lukaku drew howls of derision as he failed to make the most of a right wing cross from Pogba, his weak header sailing aimlessly wide of the target.

The Englishman made a few positive interventions in the early stages, linking well with Gylfi Sigurðsson, but he seemed to fall asleep after that.

Martial is yet to commit his future to United.

The game had an open feel to it from the get-go, as both teams pushed forward in search of the first goal.
