The Frenchman has been in decent form of late and today had every chance of being his so-called ‘statement’ game in a United shirt, but it certainly doesn’t look like panning out that way.
After giving away a bizarre penalty within the first 30 minutes following a clear handball, Pogba was obviously struggling to keep his composure and proceeded to throw Jordan Henderson to the ground at the following set-piece like he was on Monday Night Raw:

As you can imagine, the ‘tackle’ got exactly the sort of reaction it merited: absolute derision.

Paul Pogba so concerned about holding off Henderson, he completely forgets about the ball.

Pogba ? it was like henderson's head was a tough lid on a jar of Nutella that he just couldn't open

That's a suspension worthy challenge by Pogba on Henderson.

Cannot imagine the consequences if Suarez/Costa had done what Pogba just did. Genuinely pulled Henderson to ground from his neck.

Ref, you give Lovren a yellow for a fair tackle and don't give Pogba anything for attempting some next level WWE stuff on Henderson?

We have no idea if the FA are planning to slap a suspension on Pogba for the challenge, but do you think he deserves it?
