After another ridiculously slow run-up, Paul Pogba had his penalty saved by Everton’s Jordan Pickford at Old Trafford before he was able to knock in the rebound.
The 25-year-old Manchester United midfielder’s now infamous approach to spot-kicks has been widely debated online after it featured again in their 2-1 win over Marco Silva’s side in the Premier League on Sunday.
After what seemed like as age as he sauntered towards the ball, a goal was eventually scored but not before the goalkeeper had palmed the initial shot back into his path.
These were the best of the jokes following Paul Pogba’s slow penalty run-up against Everton:

Nice to see Paul Pogba correctly decide that winding up your dad is more important than taking a good penalty

Sigurdsson was going to do a Pogba run-up too, but Gylfi feet have got no rhythm.

Takes real talent to play a one-two from the penalty spot. Pogba gives @ManUtd the lead.
