After admitting he was lucky to score for United against Everton, Paul Pogba hinted that he could change his technique for spot-kicks in future.
United was awarded a penalty in the 26th minute at Old Trafford when Idrissa Gueye was judged to have brought down Anthony Martial and Pogba stepped up to take it, deploying the controversial long, slow jog up to the ball that has proved very divisive.
Pickford guessed the right way and parried away Pogba’s eventual shot, but the ball bounced back to the France international to tap in the rebound and give United the lead.
Anthony Martial’s second-half strike ensured that not even a late consolation from Gylfi Sigurdsson could deny Jose Mourinho’s men a vital win.
“I always try to destabilize the goalkeeper,” Pogba told reporters after the match. “I always shoot like this and that’s how I know how to take penalties.
“I may practice to change it because maybe the goalkeepers are starting to know my steps, but the most important thing is when the ball goes in.”
