EPL – What Pogba, Rashford Discussed Before Penalty Miss In Wolves Draw


Manchester United players Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford had a discussion before the penalty miss from the former during the Premier League clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night.

During the game, Manchester United were awarded a second half penalty after Paul Pogba was fouled in the Wolves box by Wolves skipper Conor Coady.

According to the Daily Mirror, Rashford asked Pogba if he wants to take the penalty and the Frenchman responded with Yes.

Paul Pogba went on to lose the resulting penalty and it proved to be costly for Manchester United who lost their perfect start to the new Premier League season with a 1-1 draw at the home of Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Marcus Rashford had been successful from the penalty spot in the first game of the season, a 4-0 win over top four rivals Chelsea at home.

The Wolves game was the second match of the Premier League season.

It took place at the Molineux on Monday night and the match ended in a score draw.

Manchester United took the lead in the first half through Anthony Martial who has now scored two goals in two games.

Wolves equalized in the second half through a stunning strike from Ruben Neves and the missed penalty from Pogba would have given the Red Devils the three points at stake.
