- Pogba penalty saved as Neves stunner earns Wolves draw against Man Utd
- Pogba and Man Utd pay the penalty as spot-kick debate steals the spotlight
A week after Marcus Rashford scored from the spot in United’s win against Chelsea, the striker allowed Pogba to take the penalty at Molinuex with the score at 1-1.
Pogba ultimately saw his penalty saved by Rui Patricio, the Frenchman’s fourth miss in a year, as United missed the chance to top the Premier League table.

But despite the miss, Solskjaer said he still has two penalty-takers, and that it is up to Pogba and Rashford to decide who takes each one.
Solskjaer said: "The two of them are the designated penalty shooters. It’s up to them there and then to decide that ‘this is mine’. Sometimes players feel they are confident enough – Paul has scored so many penalties for us, today Patricio made a good save."
Asked if he would rethink his strategy, Solskjaer added: "Not at all. The two have been very confident before – the other week Marcus scored a goal but Paul was confident. I like players to be confident."
Anthony Martial had given United a first-half lead, but Wolves hit back thanks to Ruben Neves’ stunner before Pogba’s penalty was saved.
It was the third time in a row Wolves came from behind against United to earn at least a point in the Premier League.
