Paul Pogba: Man Utd midfielder takes 26-step penalty against Everton

Mohamed Salah could be off to Spain next summer

Jose Mourinho insisted he is happy for Paul Pogba to remain his penalty taker despite the midfielder missing from the spot for the second time this season in Manchester United's 2-1 win over Everton.

Lukaku has not scored for his club since September 15 and manager Jose Mourinho has taken the decision to leave him out of the team to face his former club.

Martial struck for the 2-1 win.

The 12 young soccer players whose rescue from a Thai cave in July captured an worldwide spotlight attended a Manchester United match and met several of the players this weekend.

Gylfi Sigurdsson's late penalty wasn't enough to earn the Blues a point after a costly miss by Bernard as United got back to winning ways courtesy of a dodgy penalty won by Martial and converted at the second attempt by Pogba, and a stunning curlier from Martial.

Sigurdsson took a more orthodox approach to his effort than Pogba, blasting an unstoppable shot past De Gea into the corner. It was good for us and good for me.

Hope, who registered his second ODI ton, kept chipping away despite some tight bowling by the Indian pacemen and Holder´s run out. The West Indies spinners, especially senior pro Devendra Bishoo, could not deliver on a pitch that offered turn and played slow.

"Some teams they have three chances and score three goals". That was the outcome of a goal we conceded and some chances we miss. For us it is nearly an impossible mission to keep a clean sheet even with the phenomenal goalkeeper [David de Gea] we have and to score goals is really hard for us.

"Today, I was lucky, but the most important thing is that the ball went in and I scored a goal. So I think he's achieving a level where his performance is not just analysed by the goals he score, but by the performance overall, so he's becoming a better player".

Unfortunately they soon took their foot off the gas and let Everton back into the match which forced the players to defend for their lives.

"He took quite a long time to understand what we want, quite a long time for his brain and body to be ready for how we want him to play", Mourinho said.

The equaliser wouldn't come, however, and it was United who could have added to their tally but Romelu Lukaku, on as a substitute having been dropped by Mourinho, put a free header well wide and Pickford made one more brilliant save to deny Martial when he, too, was sent away into the clear in the last few minutes. Some teams with three chances they score three goals.
