Manchester United facing problems in attack and defence - Jose Mourinho

Pogba seemed to take an age as he slowly stepped up to the spot in what was certainly an attempt to get into Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford's head. Can he improve? I think he can.

Everton won a penalty on 76 minutes after Pogba lost possession and Sigurdsson played in Richarlison who was felled by Smalling.

Speaking after the game, Souness remarked that Martial had the raw qualities of a truly special player. He wants to play and he knows that to do that he has to go in a certain direction. Jonathan Moss awarded a penalty - a debatable decision, and Silva was left unhappy, while Gueye, already booked, was lucky not to be sent to the changing rooms.

"It is hard periods for them and for me because I want more from them but I am really happy with Anthony".

"Or Alexis Sanchez, [Ander] Herrera and [Romelu] Lukaku, three players he's always wanted to sign". "We are not as rock solid as I would like, we don't have that killer instinct I would like. We had it under control even when it was 2-1", said Mourinho.

It was a hammer blow for the visitors and one which might have worsened moments later when Marcus Rashford also found himself clean through on the keeper, only to be denied by Pickford's outstretched leg.

The team of young Thai footballers who captured the world's attention after they were trapped in an underground cave for more than two weeks in June enjoyed a day to remember at Manchester United's Old Trafford on Sunday (Oct 28). 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.

United then doubled their lead shortly after the restart when Anthony Martial added his third goal in two matches with a stunning strike. I don't like Mickey Mouses, fragile players who are afraid and go: 'I don't take penalties.' I don't like that.

There is, however, no guarantee that United will definitely spend big in January as the mid-season transfer window can be notoriously hard to navigate and come out with anything that resembles value, given that prices for top clubs are often at a premium except in rare cases.
