Paul Pogba apologises after conceding penalty against Arsenal
The Red Devils were far from inspiring on the day but had managed to prevent the visitors from scoring until the Frenchman felled Hector Bellerin inside the box. Thus, allowing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to step up and slot the ball into the back of the net.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men couldn’t mount a comeback as Arsenal registered their first-ever win at Old Trafford since 2006.
And Pogba has opened up on the penalty incident, admitting that he made a mistake which ended up costing his side. (h/t The Independent)
“I thought I would touch the ball but I didn’t. [I] cost us the goal today with the penalty. Maybe I was a bit out of breath, it made me do this stupid mistake.”
The Frenchman went on to add that the performance levels were unacceptable and the team needs to do better, especially with the creation of chances. (h/t The Independent)
“We have to do better, the team, myself, it starts with me. We also need to do more with the ball creating chances.”

Pogba has started the new season on a poor note. The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner has struggled for fitness this term but seemed to have found his footing in the midweek clash against RB Leipzig.
However, he was extremely poor against Arsenal and may once again find himself on the bench in the upcoming matches.
The Red Devils will look to bounce back to winning ways when they face Istanbul Basaksehir in the UEFA Champions League in a few days.
