Arsenal Look to Man Utd Creator as Potential Replacement for Aaron Ramsey

Everton keeper Jordan Pickford revealed after his side's 2-1 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford that he was savvy to Paul Pogba's penalty technique.

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.

Pogba was involved in both United goals on Sunday, later teeing up Anthony Martial to hit what ultimately proved the victor.

But replays show that Gueye did touch the ball on the way through, which Souness and Redknapp point to as a reason for the penalty to have not been given.

"I've always believed it", said Graeme Souness on Sky Sports after the 2-1 win.

Sigurdsson took a more orthodox approach to his effort than Pogba, blasting an unstoppable shot past De Gea into the corner. And it appears that Jose Mourinho's team has been leaked ahead of kick-off. "We are not as rock solid as I would like, we don't have that killer instinct I would like".

As for apportioning credit for Martial's re-emergence, Mourinho added: "Well if when the players are playing bad it's my fault then when the players are playing well it's my responsibility!"

"But for us in this moment it is is nearly impossible to keep a clean sheet even with the phenomenal goalkeeper we have".

At least Mourinho currently has Martial, who is in the middle of contract talks with United over an extension, enjoying his best form under the current manager with four goals now in his last three Premier League games.

United thought they had a second on the half-hour mark, with Marcus Rashford pouncing from a save by Pickford, but was offside and the goal was ruled out.

"I like the player who says, "I want to take it" like the Crystal Palace player Luka Milivojevic". Some teams with three chances they score three goals and some teams without the ball can resist and keep clean sheets all the time.

"I was lucky [with the penalty], the important thing is it went in and I scored the goal, good for us and me".

'And they scored from the penalty, but we managed to control until the end and to win'.
