There are 10 days between Derby's visit to Old Trafford and United's Premier League home clash with Stoke, when Lukaku may be available again.
Young Axel Tuanzebe is an option but I think we'll see Victor Lindelof move out to the right with Marcos Rojo recalled alongside Phil Jones in the middle of defence. "That does not mean that we all have to be phenomenal". Sometimes he doesn't play so well.
"Romelu is not a problem, maybe Romelu can play [on Friday]", said Mourinho in his post-match press conference at Goodison Park. It's not Paul's fault that he made much more money than Paul Scholes.
"Scholes will be in history as a phenomenal player - not as a pundit".
"I played on the left today and it kind of give me a licence to go inside and get on the ball and create".
"If one day Paul decides to become a manager I wish that he can be 25% as successful as myself". Fifty per cent is 12-and-a-half silverware, 25 per cent is around six (trophies). So if he's 25% he'll be quite happy.
Mourinho admitted though to being uncertain as to whether or not he would be able to consider the player. "That's a problem that I can not resolve".
Following a tiresome first 45, Martial, playing up front in the absence of injured duo Romelu Lukaku and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, curled home a 57th-minute opener before Lingard smashed in his seventh goal in nine games nine minutes from time.
Mourinho said: "The performance was really good, so maybe I'm lucky this time and the kings of the rock and roll that said I was underperforming last match maybe will say this time I performed".
Allardyce said: "Our attacking powers are limited".
"I know that normally bad, bad news arrives immediately and bad news didn't arrive".
Martial and Lingard fire Manchester United into second
And José Mourinho has his say: "We have no No9 but the spirit is good and the team are playing well without getting the results". Everton: Pickford; Williams, Martina, Kenny, Holgate; Gueye , Schneiderlin , Sigurdsson, Lennon; Rooney, Calvert-Lewin.
