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

Pogba baby-stepped his way up to the ball in near slow-motion, taking an incredible 26 steps before making contact with the ball... The Red Devils' 35 wins in this fixture is a Premier League record by a club against a single opponent, while the Toffees have won just twice at Old Trafford since the Premier League was formed in 1992.

Everton were aggrieved to go in at the break behind.

Jordan Pickford impressively kept out Pogba's initial effort, but the midfielder's stuttering run-up was spared from more scrutiny as he rolled in a fortunate rebound.

The World Cup victor also failed to convert in the victory at Burnley in September and admitted he may have to reassess the heavily debated approach.

Pogba sloppily gave away the ball before Chris Smalling took down Richarlison in the box.

Pickford had to deny close-range attempts from Marcus Rashford and Pogba soon after as United looked to bury the game, but were pegged back with 15 minutes remaining.

The hosts veered from passive to purposeful in an opening period that Everton started well.

The 12 youngsters from the Wild Boars club, aged between 11 and 16, were invited to United's Carrington training ground to meet the stars on the eve of the Everton game. Everybody knows Martial and today he showed the Martial touch.

Martial made the most of a tackle from Idrissa Gana Gueye just after twenty minutes which fooled referee Jonathan Moss into giving the home side a penalty. The Everton midfielder avoided a booking shortly after earning his first, but his team-mates argued that he got the ball and it should not have been a penalty at all.

Indeed, Pogba's run-up took longer than Usain Bolt to run a 100m...

Everton tasted familiar defeat at Old Trafford but it was a result that owed much to poor officiating as well as some wayward finishing by the Blues as they chased the game in the second half.

Richarlison got a strike away moments after the restart but United would quickly extend their advantage.

Martial followed up his performance in the first half with a sweetly struck first time effort that curled beautifully into the right corner of the net. Pogba was then stripped of his role as vice-captain.

Romelu Lukaku has been the player in the firing line of the Man United fans in recent weeks and he was finally dropped this afternoon for the crucial game against Everton.

This was a United team full of spontaneity, full of enthusiasm and full of attacking intent. The penalty was awarded after Smalling brought down Richarlison.
