Fans Think Paul Pogba Told Luke Shaw To 'Dive' During Manchester United Vs Aston Villa
Fans think they spotted Paul Pogba telling Luke Shaw to 'dive' during Manchester United's 2-1 victory over Aston Villa.
The incident occurred in the second half while the game was 1-1, with Shaw bursting into the box.
Villa defender Matty Cash cut across the full-back and touched the ball out of play.
But cameras caught Pogba make a downward gesture with his hand, which rival fans think was a gesture to go down.

Later in the second half, Pogba would win a penalty himself after going down under pressure from Douglas Luiz.
But some have taken issue with the penalty call, as they feel Pogba managed to 'trip himself' to win the spot kick.
Hard fought victory has taken United joint top of the Premier League, but some fans have taken issue with what went on during the game.

United took the lead in the first half through Anthony Martial, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka's cross catching Villa's defence off guard.
Martial got down low to head past Emiliano Martinez and register his seventh goal contribution in six games.
Dean Smith's side equalised through Bertrand Traore, before Bruno Fernandes stepped up to score the decisive penalty.
Clinical from the spot. :dart:
Bruno Fernandes restores Manchester United's advantage just three minutes after Bertrand Traore had drawn Aston Villa level. :cloud_tornado:
