The Red Devils took an early lead in the Premier League opener against Leicester City courtesy of an unusual penalty from Pogba
Only Paul Pogba can get away with that.
The World Cup winner took a six-second run-up before comfortably converting Manchester United’s second-minute penalty against Leicester.
But it felt like years.
There were shades of Simone Zaza’s Euro 2016 penalty miss for Italy which has since been immortalised through memes.
And despite the spot-kick emphatically finding the top corner, fans on Twitter were totally bemused by what they had just seen:
