Jose Mourinho warns Paul Pogba to change his penalty-taking technique

Jose Mourinho warns Paul Pogba to change his penalty-taking technique

It was good for us and it was good for me.

Sigurdsson converted from the spot to hand Everton a lifeline, but United held on to extend their record of never having never lost a Premier League game after scoring first under Mourinho.

His penalty-taking method must rankle with pragmatist Mourinho and a loose pass led to the Toffees' goal, but Pogba was so often at the heart of United's best moves and in this mood his manager will accept the good with the bad.

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.

On 25 minutes, Evertonian pre-game fears were realised as John Moss awarded United a penalty after Martial when down theatrically under a challenge from Gana Gueye.

"The thing I like is the desire to take it", said the Portuguese coach. 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. He missed against Everton and today they get two penalties [against Arsenal]and he wants to take.

The 22-year-old won the penalty that Paul Pogba converted at the second attempt in the 27th minute before lashing home what proved the victor just after half-time.

"I might have to start to change it because maybe the goalkeepers start to know my steps".

"Paul wants to take them and that, for me, is fantastic".

"He wants to take them".

Meanwhile, Pogba revealed he was lucky to have scored his penalty after seeing his effort saved.

Manchester United's midfielder Juan Mata has emerged as a potential candidate to replace Aaron Ramsey at Arsenal - as both players look set to leave their respective clubs when their contracts expire in the summer. The last game against Chelsea, we should have won this game, we missed two points.

"Then after, we carried on and had other chances". "He's got that good of a penalty, he's got that power in it, so you've got to go a tad early".

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.
