"When you are talking about Lukaku, when a striker doesn't score in the last games it is normal to criticise him, it happened the same with some of our strikers before".

Pickford came up big again to save Pogba's penalty but the midfielder converted on the rebound as the keeper was only able to palm the ball back to him. And to score goals is really hard for us - you can see that in this moment.

The margin should ultimately have been greater but Martial finally let his standard slip in the 94th minute, failing to beat Pickford in a one-on-one.

United were somewhat lucky to get the penalty to begin with. 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.

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

This was a United team full of spontaneity, full of enthusiasm and full of attacking intent. They also ensured the momentum continued into the second half, as Old Trafford was treated to some breath-taking football in the second 45 minutes, Rashford and Pogba spurning clear opportunities which would have put them 4-0 up on the night before Everton's late mini-resurgence temporarily halted their dominance.

Everton nearly found an immediate response three minutes later, but Bernard, having rounded De Gea, inexplicably missed the target with the goal gaping.

De Gea couldn't do much to stop Gylfi Sigurdsson's penalty but had a decent outing in between the sticks. In terms of my approach to my young players, that's the way I am.

United thought they had a second on the half-hour mark, with Marcus Rashford pouncing from a save by Pickford, but was offside and the goal was ruled out.

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 penalty was awarded after Smalling brought down Richarlison. He surges into the area but sees his rising effort brush the fingertips of De Gea on its way over.

Paul Pogba's penalty technique is seriously p**sing off everyone.

Lukaku had a number of chances to make the right run or pass but failed nearly every time.

Lukaku, dropped after an eight-game scoreless streak, might find himself on the bench more regularly after Martial and Rashford proved United can pose problems without their first-choice centre-forward.
