"But he is a great person and a great guy and I am happy for him that he is scoring".
It was his fourth goal in his last three Premier League games and Mourinho said afterwards the 22-year-old is finally starting to get the most out of his undoubted talent.
"We are not as rock solid as I would like".
"I did my research and made the save".
"But I think in other matches even when [Fred] didn't play the team was controlling well, even against Chelsea when we played just the two midfield players we were in great control, and great creation, playing okay".
"You can not score every time you play, where you don't assist but you have a certain balance". He is still a very, very young boy. Martial returned to the team and has been in excellent form lately.
"When you don't have results it is very hard for players to have that high confidence".
Neville added: 'He 's got power and he's got pace and when he cuts inside he is a threat, he can hit the ball and he's positive. He drives at people, he won the penalty on Sunday, he commits people and he's got something about him, but there are lots of things he has to improve. I'm not talking about his defending, I'm on about what does he do going forward.
"Sometimes he is quick, he is good with the ball, he can run".
His run-ups may be ludicrous, but he's obviously doing something right. Martial then scored a brilliant goal after half-time, whipping a powerful effort past Jordan Pickford from the edge of the box.
Asked if he will change his run-up, Pogba replied, "I always try and destabilise the keeper, maybe they know how I take penalties". If he reaches his top-level he can be one of the best players in the league, for sure.
"He took quite a long time to understand what we want, quite a long time for his brain and body to be ready for how we want him to play", Mourinho said.
