Chelsea fans had to remain terribly quiet about Manchester United on Thursday night after Paul Pogba beat loaned Ethan Ampadu with a charming roulette wheel during the Red Devils’ win against Sheffield United.
Pogba sparked the team move that led to the Manchester team’s astonishing third goal of the night as the Frenchman received the ball from a Blades throw-in.
The central midfielder walked away from a Sheffield United player before letting Ampadu completely miss with a tackle attempt after a silky spin.
The Frenchman then played the ball forward and Bruno Fernandes, Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial combined to score the team’s third.
Manchester United shared the clip as a ‘perfect lunchtime display’ to their fans today, with some fans also pointing out that Pogba sent Ampadu ‘back to Chelsea’ with great skill.

I love how no Chelsea fan is talking about their boy Ampadu being ashamed of Pogba?

Hopefully a solid performance from the young Wales international is not overshadowed by this moment, which would be extremely tough.
