Martial scored a great goal in the second half to add to Pogba's goal in the first half for United. Sigurdsson got one back for Everton from the penalty spot but United saw the same through just about.

The stats aren't good for United, either. At this stage last season, they had kept seven cleansheets in nine Premier League games. This time out, they've kept just one. Everton, meanwhile, have scored more headed goals than any other team and have registered 17 or more shots in all of their last three games in the league, having only managed that once in the whole of last season.
Everton haven't beaten United in the last seven meetings in all competitions. That last victory was a 3-0 home win in 2015. And even worse, they've only won two of their 26 Premier League trips to Old Trafford.
Records are there to be broken, of course, but they're not in Everton's favour going in this fixture. However, many opponents have come to Old Trafford since Sir Alex Ferguson retired and achieved results that their predecessors never could. Think Norwich, Newcastle, Stoke, Southampton and many more.
Everton, meanwhile, are looking injury-free. Yerry Mina could make his debut for the Toffees in defence. He was heavily linked with United in the summer, but nothing came of that.
Marouane Fellaini and Alexis Sanchez are both still not an option for Mourinho, who bemoaned the fact that the pair are unavailable after United's loss to Juventus in midweek.
Jose Mourinho could be set to welcome back Jesse Lingard and Scott McTominay to the United side. Both have been out of action recently. Lingard has been having trouble with an injury since the World Cup and he's been massively missed by United.
Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson have been scoring a few but it was Cenk Tosun and Dominic Calvert-Lewin who netted in Everton’s recent 2-0 win against Crystal Palace.
For Everton, Marco Silva is seeking his fourth consecutive victory for the Blues. They had a rough start to life under Silva with only one win in the first six league matches but have settled now and are looking good.
Tuesday night saw United beaten 1-0 by Juventus, arguably Europe’s best team. United never really looked like scoring.
A win for Mourinho is a must. United haven’t won at home in all competitions since their unconvincing opening day 2-1 victory against Leicester City. They’ve only won one of their last seven fixtures.
What isn’t laughable for United fans is that the last two seasons have been constantly spattered with moments that have shown United to be a great side. There was an intense 10 minutes against Chelsea where Anthony Martial scored twice and United looked unstoppable. But these moments are clouded by periods of stupidity, lapses of concentration and displays of an obvious lack of quality.
Jose Mourinho’s men have been woeful this season. A comeback victory against Newcastle United and a good second half in a draw at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea have helped to ease the pressure. But Man United remain a dull side to watch who lack ruthlessness, creativity and impetus. They are fine, but so far off the top teams that it’s laughable.
With kick-off set for 4PM on Sunday, this game comes at the end of another big weekend in the Premier League. Both sides will want to get some points to move back up the table after falling down due to their competitors’ earlier games. For Man United, that desire is a pressing matter. The Reds came into this fixture sitting in lowly 10th.
Manchester vs Merseyside. Not the biggest of this kind of fixture, but a match that has provided great moments and fierce coming-togethers. Welcome to VAVEL UK’s live coverage of Manchester United vs Everton.
