Mourinho: Martial Has Learned His Role


"They scored a fantastic goal but we had a good chance to score at 2-1".

Pogba turned provider for Martial to curl past Pickford in the 49th minute but Gylfi Sigurdsson's penalty denied United what would have been only their second clean sheet of the season in the Premier League. We want to win, of course, but we want to win in a good way, we want to win with creative football. "I told the players at half-time it was not a fair result".

Despite almost costing Manchester United a vital goal, Mourinho was full of praise for Pogba.

Mourinho said: "The thing I like is the desire to take it".

The boys hugged United manager José Mourhino and took pictures with soccer stars Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera on Saturday.

Everton's three game winning run came to an end, but they can take heart from a decent performance that deserved a point and would have been so had we been more clinical in front of goal, particularly the miss from Bernard. "I always try to destabilise the keeper", he said in his post-match interview.

The Italian remains unbeaten since taking charge at Stamford Bridge, and Sarri was also happy with a better defensive display than in recent weeks.

"Even if it even goes three yards out to his left or right, I've got enough time to get up and make the save from the rebound but it wasn't to be".

Sell Lukaku. We don't need him.

United won a penalty in the first half, which Pogba was tasked with scoring. I think he can, I think the goalkeepers don't move and they are waiting for his decision so I think he probably has to learn from that.

Sigurdsson made no mistake with an assured penalty and Silva played the remainder of his cards by throwing Cenk Tosun and Dominic Calvert-Lewin on for Gueye and the disappointing Walcott.

Anthony Martial in particular seemed to enjoy more freedom without the presence of Lukaku with Marcus Rashford given the chance to play through the middle on this occasion.

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". Can he improve? I think he can.
