After the penalty storm surrounding Manchester United’s draw with Wolves last night, Paddy Power make it majorly odds-on that Frenchman Paul Pogba will be dropped from spotkick duties.
They make it 1/7 that Marcus Rashford – who clinically converted his against Chelsea in the Reds’ opening game of the season – takes the next penalty United are awarded.
Asked about the miss spokesman Paddy Power said: “Middle-aged pundits are rightly furious that Pogba deigned to have his penalty saved against Wolves, with the midfielder named in the headline of just about every match report – obviously.
“Despite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s insistence that he can defend his midfielder by showing a PowerPoint presentation, he may instead opt to present to him a perfect penalty instead, via Marcus Rashford.”
1/7 Marcus Rashford
4/1 Paul Pogba
12/1 Any other player
