Pogba admits he may have to alter penalty approach after Pickford save

Report: Juventus Planning January Loan Move For Paul Pogba

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has admitted his culpability for the goal that Everton scored in Sunday's Premier League meeting between the teams.

The French forward, who reportedly rejected the club's offer of a contract extension this week, won the penalty for Paul Pogba's opener and curled in a splendid goal of his own after half-time.

Click on the link above to listen to the latest Super Sunday podcast! That poor run is in sharp contrast to his form at the same stage last campaign, when he had already netted 11 times.

Pogba broke the deadlock after 27 minutes but only after converting the rebound when his penalty was magnificently saved one-handed by Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford. And to score goals is really hard for us - you can see that in this moment.

Martial is yet to commit his future to United.

Juan Mata had nearly a similar opportunity for United four minutes later but he failed to generate enough power and Everton shot-stopper Jordan Pickford got under his effort. 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.

The visitors did eventually pull one back when Sigurdsson converted a penalty with 13 minutes to go, but United held on to claim a win that moves them above Everton and five points off the top four.

However, the United team news was leaked ahead of last Saturday's draw with Chelsea and it proved correct.

Martial has had to wait patiently for opportunities at Old Trafford but appears to have finally won over his manager. Young was slightly fortunate not to see yellow for a challenge that felled Lucas Digne on 35 minutes. The Brazilian raced onto a defence-splitting pass and skipped around De Gea but put his shot into the side-netting when trying to squeeze it between the post and Victor Lindelof on the line.

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

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

Mata, unsurprisingly, was becoming more and more influential and another fine ball played Pogba in with Pickford again saving low down to concede a corner that came to nothing.

"It is clear it was a dive".

Lukaku had a number of chances to make the right run or pass but failed nearly every time. I am happy with boys who are improving.

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.
