He might have received the honour of a Twitter emoji, but it didn't take long for Paul Pogba to find himself on the receiving end of a social media witch-hunt.
The Manchester United midfielder had presented his likeness just days before the clash with Liverpool, as Jose Mourinho's men sought to maintain their excellent run of results at Old Trafford.
But a senseless handball in his own area gave Liverpool a golden chance from the penalty spot, which James Milner converted with glee.
And the world's most expensive player went from Twitter hero to zero in just a matter of minutes as users rounded on him for an infantile mistake.
Pogba dabbed in their box. Unreal mentality — Danny Welbeck (@WelBeast) 15 de enero de 2017
I appreciate it’s part of his brand, but would rather Pogba didn’t dab when trying to head the ball. — Liam Canning (@LiamPaulCanning) 15 de enero de 2017
Did Pogba just give a penalty away by dabbing in his own box? — Spencer FC (@SpencerOwen) 15 de enero de 2017
"Yes, wer're losing, but the Pogba hashtag is trending and that's worth far more than 3 points." -- Ed Woodward right now — Brooks Peck (@BrooksDT) 15 de enero de 2017
If you have your own transfer trailer and hashtag, you better be good. Pogba has been recently but just not at it so far today. — Samuel Luckhurst (@samuelluckhurst) 15 de enero de 2017

The Yellow in Pogba’s hair is a clear indication that he is indeed playing for Liverpool today. Just forgot to give him the shirt. — George Benson (@MrGeorgeBenson) 15 de enero de 2017
Pogba needs a timeout in the quiet corner, maybe some apple juice and a digestive biscuit. — Tricia (@Tr16ia) 15 de enero de 2017
