Paul Pogba was brilliant for Manchester United during their 3-1 victory over Tottenham, and could have had a goal to show for it, had he not been so casual with the finish.

 

Pogba is oftentimes regarded as a luxury player, one which will execute things on a football pitch which will leave you astonished, but that’s not always a positive.

Pogba had an opportunity to fire home past Hugo Lloris from inside the six-yard-box, but instead attempted an audacious back-heel, which was blocked by Eric Dier.
