Paul Pogba scored Manchester United’s opener in the 2-1 victory over Everton at Old Trafford on Sunday evening.

United were awarded a penalty in the first half and Paul Pogba who usually delays his run-up to a penalty kick by taking over 10 seconds to strike the ball did the same thing, but Jordan Pickford saved his effort. Pogba was fortunate that the ball fell straight back to him and he was able to tap the ball into the net.

The 25-year-old also missed a penalty using a similar run-up against Burnley earlier this season, and he has now conceded that it is time for him to change his approach.

“I was lucky, the important thing is it went in and I scored the goal, good for us and me,” Pogba told Sky Sports.

“After we carried on and had other chances, most important thing was the win.”

Asked if he will change his penalty style, Pogba replied: “I always try and destabilise the keeper, maybe they know how I take penalties.

“Maybe I should practice to change it, if the keepers know my step.”
