Paul Pogba accused of faking injury after Manchester United's poor start against Liverpool

Manchester United and Liverpool are currently playing in the Premier League at Anfield

Liverpool headed into the game looking, at least temporarily, to overtake Manchester City – who face Brighton on Wednesday – at the top of the standings.

On the other hand, Manchester United were looking to gain some ground in the top four.

However, Liverpool entered the match as an obvious candidate, and so far it is Jurgen Klopp’s side who are in control of the match.

Pogba accused of falsifying the injury

Not surprisingly, it took Liverpool just five minutes to open the scoring.

Sadio Mane fell deep to receive the ball, taking Harry Maguire out of his position before slipping the ball behind the Englishman to Mohamed Salah. From there the Egyptian played a beautiful ball to Luis Diaz who made it 1-0 by a court finish.

Shortly after the goal, Paul Pogba started limping and was transferred 10 minutes later.

The Frenchman went down the tunnel but then returned to the bench.

Now, after his poor start that made him fail to even try to shut down Sadio Mane in preparation for Diaz’s goal, Pogba has been accused of faking his injury by some Manchester United fans online:
