Paul Pogba admits he may have to change penalty approach

"Some teams they have three chances and score three goals".

Pogba broke the deadlock in the 27th minute, scoring the rebound after his penalty was saved by Jordan Pickford.

Everton were finally rewarded for their endeavour after 76 minutes when Pogba lost the ball to Sigurdsson and the Icelandic worldwide sent away Richarlison who was clumsily grounded by Chris Smalling for the second penalty of the game.

Mourinho admitted Pogba should perhaps think about altering his technique but commended the World Cup victor for his willingness to front up.

"I admire players who have the courage to take them", added Mourinho.

While Pogba had his shooting boots to hand in the advertising shots, the United midfielder might have wondered where his own were as he stepped up to take a penalty against Everton.

"Well, against Juventus to give him [Lukaku] a break, I don't think [Michael] Carrick can play as a striker", Mourinho said.

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.

The Italian remains unbeaten since taking charge at Stamford Bridge, and Sarri was also happy with a better defensive display than in recent weeks.

United manager Jose Mourinho, however, insisted he is happy for Pogba to remain as his penalty taker.

And on the penalty decision, Mourinho went on to explain that Pogba is more of an expert on them than he is.

"He's the full package if he's right, but I don't know if he doesn't want to be in Manchester or he's fallen out with the manager in pre-season because his partner has given birth, but there is a real player in there".

"We dug in as a group and we nearly got something out of the game". Can he improve? I think he can.
