United are considered serious title contenders this season, after Jose Mourinho brought in Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof.
However, Pogba could have killed his team’s momentum with a moment of madness, one which could have seen the France international sent for an early bath.
Pogba picked up an early booking after he cynically brought down Tom Caroll after 30 minutes:

And it appears Pogba lost his temper again shortly after, with a crunching tackle on a Swansea defender that could have warranted a second booking:

Fortunately for United, Pogba avoided a caution and his powerful header cannoned off the crossbar, allowing Eric Bailly to prod the ball into the net.
Are United lucky to still have 11 players on the pitch… and should Mourinho substitute the 24-year-old to avoid a red card?
Or was Jonathan Moss right to give Pogba another chance?
