Manchester United secured a 2-1 win over Everton at Old Trafford on Sunday, with Paul Pogba scoring one and assisting the other.

However, Pogba’s goal came after a quite outlandish run-up for penalty, which was saved by Jordan Pickford before the Frenchman tapped home the rebound.

Pogba baby-stepped his way up to the ball in near slow-motion, taking an incredible 28 steps before making contact with the ball…

Bizarre stuff which almost back-fired.

Indeed, Pogba’s run-up took longer than Usain Bolt to run a 100m…

Everton were incensed by the initial decision to give the penalty, with Idrissa Gueye looking to have got a touch on the back before making contact with Anthony Martial.

Pogba’s goal came on 27 minutes, with the midfielder then setting up fellow-countryman Martial, who produced an outstanding curling first-time finish.

United were, once again, not at their best and a Gylfi Sigurdsson penalty late on made for a very finale for the home fans.

However, Jose Mourinho’s side would hold on, and find themselves in eighth spot, nine points behind leaders Liverpool.

    I think Pickford should be the number two target for Man United when they lose De Gea next season. I would go for Oblak first and, if the move fails, then I would go for Pickford.
