Watch: Paul Pogba sent off for Man Utd after two footed horror tackle

Manchester United's Paul Pogba

Paul Pogba was bought as a half-time substitute with Manchester United 4-0 down against Liverpool – and barely lasted 15 minutes before getting sent off. 

United went into Sunday’s Premier League game knowing that defeat would see them cast adrift of title rivals Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were torn apart by a rampant Liverpool and were booed off by an angry Old Trafford crowd.

Pogba was introduced in place of Mason Greenwood but didn’t make it to the hour mark after a horrendous two-footed tackle on Naby Keita.

Referee Anthony Taylor originally awarded a yellow card but, after consulting with VAR, upgraded his punishment to a red – and Pogba could have zero complaints.

With United already enduring a shaky season, Sunday’s sobering result will further increase the pressure on the beleaguered Solskjaer.

Meanwhile, in the Sky studios, Graeme Souness takes a deep breath and prepares his latest diatribe against Pogba. At least he’ll deserve it on this occasion…
