Wild Boars get a Man United treat

Marco Silva accused Anthony Martial of diving for Manchester United's 27th-minute penalty in their 2-1 victory over Everton.Paul Pogba scored on the rebound following Jordan Pickford's save.

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

Pogba's future at struggling Premier League giants United is uncertain following claims of a falling out with embattled manager Jose Mourinho. In football it's hard to feed that relation with managers, because our life is not an easy one and it's not like we can have conversations or be together every day or every week, but he's a good boy.

United negotiated a nervy finale, but they could have had another goal when Martial was played clean through on goal only to be denied by Pickford.

"We came here to win the match, we played well and until that moment, the penalty, they had one chance, we had one chance".

"Of course we are unhappy with the result but one penalty and one fantastic finish made the difference". Lukaku replaced Rashford with half an hour left on the clock which could and should have provided him with the opportunity to get off the mark.

"The referee is there at that moment and it looks like my player touched the ball, so it's not a tough decision. That is the way I think it is going now". 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.

Manchester United entered the game against Everton under pressure to win after they were outclassed at Old Trafford on Tuesday night by Juventus.

Bernard's poor afternoon was capped off when, having gone past De Gea, the Brazilian subsequently put the ball into the side-netting when an open goal beckoned. The Frenchman could've grabbed his second brace in two Premier League outings, but he hesitated when he found himself one-on-one with Pickford near the end of the game.

Three minutes into the second half, Pogba was involved again for United's second, brilliantly finished by Martial with a curling right-footed shot from outside the box, reminiscent of his second goal in the 2-2 draw at Chelsea last weekend. Rashford is sent clear.

However, Chris Smalling gave away a needless penalty kick which brought Everton back into the game.

Paul Pogba wasn't all lovely 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.
