Two Manchester United players have been named in the Premier League team of the week for Matchday 10.

The French duo of Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial made the team of the week selected by Premier League legend Stan Collymore via Daily Mirror.

Both players were hugely influential as Manchester United saw off Everton 2-1 at Old Trafford.

Pogba and Matic were on target for the Red Devils in the 2-1 win over the Toffees.

France World Cup winner Pogba scored the opening goal on 27 minutes.

The former Juventus star had his penalty saved by Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford before he found the back of the net with the rebound.

Everton midfielder Idrissa ‘Gana’ Gueye had earlier been penalised for bringing down in the box.

The in-form Martial doubled the Red Devils’ lead with four second half minutes gone off a Paul Pogba pass.

The former AS Monaco star has now scored in three successive league games.

Gylfi Sigurdsson pulled one back for the visitors in the 77th minute from the penalty spot after Richarlison was brought down by Manchester United centre back Chris Smalling.

Pogba and Martial were joined in the team of the week by Lukasz Fabianski (West Ham United), Marcos Alonso (Chelsea), Nathan Ake (Watford), Fabian Balbuena (West Ham United), Cedric Soares (Southampton), Roberto Pereyra (Watford), Ross Barkley (Chelsea), Sadio Mane (Liverpool) and Mohamed Salah (Liverpool).
