EPL: Gary Neville blasts Pogba as Man Utd fail to beat West Ham



Former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville has blasted midfielder, Paul Pogba for handing West Ham United a penalty during the Red Devils’ Premier League 1-1 draw against the visitors on Wednesday night at Old Trafford.

Pogba was punished for handball in the area, and a penalty was awarded to West Ham which was converted by Michail Antonio to give the Hammers a 1-0 lead in the first half.

Man United levelled in the second half through Mason Greenwood and now need a point against Leicester City on Sunday, to qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League.

But Neville, who was not happy with Pogba’s display, labelled the France World Cup winner as ‘rubbish and embarrassing’, adding that the 27-year-old should have taken Declan Rice’s shot “in the grid”, rather than throwing up his hands against West Ham.

“He’s in trouble, Paul Pogba, he’s in big, big trouble,” Neville said on Sky Sports as replays confirmed the handball.

He’s given a penalty away, he’s put his arms up and pretends it’s hit his head.

“Rubbish, Rubbish from him. To think, I felt a little bit sorry for him, I thought he took a whack in the head. Embarrassing.

“You don’t do that. You take it in the grid. It’s Rubbish from him, Rubbish!”

PICTURES: Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell join Chelsea training



Chelsea returned to training today (Wednesday) at Cobham, and there were two new faces joining the rest of the squad, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The two summer arrivals had yet to train with the squad since signing, dealing with quarantine (presumably) and heel injury issues, respectively.

It’s unclear if either will be fit and ready for this weekend’s match against Liverpool, but it’s still nice to see them in training with the rest of the group! (Those who played on Monday apparently had a lighter session, but were all out there nonetheless.)

There’s no word on how close Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may be. Ziyech is probably still a couple weeks out with his knee problem, at least, but Pulisic was supposed to be close before suffering a potential setback with his hamstring late last week. Neither were pictured in training, and one would assume their presence would get emphasized had they been there.
