Unfortunately for the midfielder, that method failed to distract Everton goalkeeper, Jordan Pickford, who produced a tremendous save.

Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho, had saluted Paul Pogba’s courage in stepping forward to take the spot-kick but added that the midfielder may have to change his method.

Pogba, meanwhile, admitted he may have second thoughts about repeating his penalty technique next time he is in the same situation.
“I was lucky, the important thing is it went in and I scored the goal, good for us and me,” Pogba told Sky Sports.
“After we carried on and had other chances, most important thing was the win.”
