Romelu Lukaku has been the player in the firing line of the Man United fans in recent weeks and he was finally dropped this afternoon for the crucial game against Everton.

But United held on to manage just their second win in seven games to alleviate some of the pressure on Mourinho.

United welcome Everton to Old Trafford on Sunday looking to move up from 10th place in the Premier League.

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.

"For us it is nearly an impossible mission to keep a clean sheet even with the phenomenal goalkeeper we have and to score goals is really hard for us".

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba's unique run-up while taking a penalty has become quite the talking point this season. The Frenchman stepped up to take the penalty after Anthony Martial was brought down by Idrissa Gueye in the box.

"There's been lots of matches in which he's not scored a goal, and not just scoring but also the performances, the happiness in the performances, I think is the problem".

Pochettino: Alli may return from injury for Man City clash

Pentagon will send 800-plus troops to secure border
The deployment of 800 mostly Army troops will include some active forces and could be in position by next week, the reports said. It's not immediately clear which units are being tasked with the mission as details are still being finalized.

"I might have to start to change it because maybe the goalkeepers start to know my steps". "I like the player that wants to take it. Paul, can he improve?"

France World Cup victor Pogba and manager Jose Mourinho have had a hard relationship this season, but the Portuguese backed his player despite the miss.

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

"We have on us that extra factor that we are Manchester United, but we have to be strong enough and fearless enough to know that it's a game that we can win".

The defeat snaps Everton's three-game winning streak and they will feel both aggrieved at yet more terrible refereeing that has cost them on the road the season while also ruing some missed opportunities of their own. We should, how we like to say, kill the game with the goal, but we didn't score and when you don't score this happens.

'Of course it is very important for us to win today, ' he told reporters.

Redknapp also did not think the penalty should have stood after watching the replays, adding: "They get a huge slice of luck, it's not a penalty for me".
