The ex-Juventus man gifted Liverpool the lead at Old Trafford with an error in his own area - although observers felt it was one of his trademark dabs

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. 

’Davies pulls Pep’s pants down’

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.
