Video: Pogba foolishly gives away penalty as Arsenal take lead against Man Utd

Paul Pogba is a liability defending in his own box and he has cost Manchester United against Arsenal. 

United have been improved slightly from a drab first-half but are now chasing the game after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang converted a penalty in the 69th minute.

Referee Mike Dean pointed to the spot when Pogba inexplicably went to ground and tripped up Hector Bellerin.

Bellerin, played in by Willian, wasn’t in a dangerous position and Pogba’s challenge was senseless at a time United needed to keep their discipline.

Aubameyang then made no mistake from 12 yards as he sent David de Gea the wrong way to give Arsenal the lead.
