Pogba to consider changing penalty approach after Pickford save

Adjust Comment Print

Some teams with three chances they score three goals. Pogba's initial shot after a ridiculous approach was saved by Pickford, but the Frenchman was quick to put the rebound into the unguarded net.

Pogba turned provider for Martial to curl past Pickford in the 49th minute but Gylfi Sigurdsson's penalty denied United what would have been only their second clean sheet of the season in the Premier League. It was good for us and it was good for me.

Pogba took a mammoth 28 steps before striking the ball.

The World Cup victor also failed to convert in the victory at Burnley in September and admitted he may have to reassess the heavily debated approach.

"I like the player that say, 'I want to take it.' But Paul, can he improve?"

Despite Pogba's tremendous first-half performance in which he ran Marco Silva's men ragged, all the talk from the first half in Manchester surrounded the World Cup winner's unorthodox run-up before taking his penalty.

"The thing I like is the desire to take it", said the Portuguese coach. And Paul wants to take [penalties], and that for me is fantastic.

Lonzo Ball scored 12 points with eight assists for the Lakers, while Josh Hart added 12 points in his second start of the season. The Lakers also survived despite their third straight game without suspended starters Brandon Ingram and Rajon Rondo .

Lukaku, dropped after an eight-game scoreless streak, might find himself on the bench more regularly after Martial and Rashford proved United can pose problems without their first-choice centre-forward.

Twitter user Jordan Elgott spliced a video of Pogba's penalty alongside none other than a 100-metre sprint from Usain Bolt.

"We dug in as a group and we nearly got something out of the game". "I always shoot like this, that's how I know how to take penalties".

"There's been lots of matches in which he's not scored a goal, and not just scoring but also the performances, the happiness in the performances, I think is the problem.

Even if it even goes three yards out to his left or right, I've got enough time to get up and make the save from the rebound but it wasn't to be". I think the goalkeepers now know his run-up and they don't move, they are waiting until the last second for his decision.

"We have on us that extra factor that we are Manchester United, but we have to be strong enough and courageous enough to know that it's a game that we can win". I think he can.
