Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba will now miss the high profile, Manchester Derby, next weekend after he was shown a straight red for stamping on Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin.
The incident took place in the 74th minute of the game and from the replay, it seemed as if the Frenchman had no malic in mind and it was just one of those situations where he was just committed to the challenge.
But none the less, he was shown a straight red and Jose Mourinho will now face a serious midfield crisis, especially during this busy December schedule.
This is how the fans reacted to the red card decision and some of them are actually happy that the Frenchman was given his marching orders:
Pogba yesterday: I hope for us, some key Man City players get injured.
