Sky Sports Cameras Zoom In On Manchester United's Tactics On Live TV
Football fans were a bit weirded out in the second half of Manchester United vs Everton when Sky Sports' cameras zoomed in on the home side's tactics.
Just as teenage striker Mason Greenwood was preparing to replace Jesse Lingard, the youngster was seen flicking through a folder of tactical diagramas whilst Ole Gunnar Solskjaer stood there motionless.
Viewers probably thought Greenwood was quickly doing his homework on the bench but then bizarrely, the Sky camera angle changed and we then had a close up, over-the-shoulder shot of the 18-year old getting important tactical instructions.
It wasn't just a quick pan as well - there was at least a minute for everyone to get clued up on United's tactical plan.

The tactics appeared to work a treat though as in the 77th minute, having been 1-0 down to a Victor Lindelof own goal in the first half, Greenwood equalised with his first Premier League goal at Old Trafford.
