WOLVERHAMPTON – Paul Pogba missed a penalty for the fourth time in the past year as Manchester United had to settle for 1-1 at Wolverhampton Wanderers in the English Premier League on Monday.
The France midfielder’s 68th-minute attempt was saved by Wolves goalkeeper Rui Patricio, who dived to his right to palm the ball away.
Pogba, who pulled his jersey over his face when the final whistle sounded, took over spot-kick duties from Marcus Rashford, who scored a penalty in the 4-0 win over Chelsea on the opening weekend of the season, and who has scored other crucial penalties for his club and England this year.
Anthony Martial put United into the lead at Molineux after running on to Rashford’s pass and shooting first time with his left foot high into the net in the 27th minute.
United handed Martial the No 9 jersey for this season, with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer demanding more goals from the winger he has converted into a striker.
