This is a selection of the best of the vast amount of Paul Pogba jokes that followed his handball against Liverpool shortly after the launch of his own custom emoji on Twitter, giving away a penalty in Manchester United’s 1-1 draw at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Complete with a new haircut, the big-money signing looked the part and the advertising hoardings promoting his emoji on the social network throughout the match.

But he seemed to flail around a lot while defending set pieces and eventually contrived to handball a Liverpool corner, with James Milner converting the resulting spot kick.

On a night to forget for the £89m man, these are the best of the Paul Pogba jokes from Man Utd 1-1 Liverpool:

I just told Paul Pogba that was my favourite dab of the season. He said What are you on about? I said For the handball. He just stormed off.

what was the #Pogba on the advertising hoardings all about?
Missing person ad?

Just asked Pogba if the hashtag #Pogba being on the advertising hoardings most of the game put him off. He said no. I said are you sure?
