Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice in the first half to give United the lead, before Kieran Dowell halved the deficit just before half time.
Teemu Pukki equalised for the Canaries after the break and the home side were desperate to get themselves ahead again.
Club captain Maguire came up for a corner and battled with Ben Gibson. While doing so, he hit the deck and flung his leg high in the air and in to Pogba.
It was a complete accident but Pogba clearly didn't appreciate it, with cameras capturing his reaction while being checked out by medical staff inside Old Trafford.
United have had a poor season and sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in November, appointing Ralf Rangnick the following month.
The German coach has failed to turn it around and they remain locked in a battle for the top four.
Maguire and Pogba have been below par this season with the latter likely to leave at the end of this season when his contract expires.
Fans have reacted to the footage and agree it's the perfect personification of their campaign, with the two players involved especially.

One commented: "Maguire has the sweet chin music technique spot on tbf."
A second put: "That's a foul in the opposition box lmaooo."
While a third tweeted: "In today's episode of The Life Of Maguire, he backheels Pogba in the head."
Pogba was substituted in the second half and received massive boos from the crowd.
Chants of "F**k off Pogba" echoed around the stadium and his second spell in a Red Devils shirt looks to be ending on a sour note.
United did end up winning the game thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo, who completed his hat-trick with first free-kick back in English football.
They have every chance of making the top four after seeing rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal slip to 1-0 defeats against Brighton and Southampton on Saturday.
United face bitter rivals Liverpool at Anfield on Tuesday evening.
