Fans Outraged As Jonjo Shelvey Unpunished For Horrendous Pogba Challenge
By Maurice Brosnan Updated

Manchester United's resurgence under Ole Gunnar Solskjær continues. The Red Devils travelled to Newcastle tonight for their Premier League clash and secured a 2-0 victory thanks to second-half goals from Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford yet fans were left fuming at a poor studs-up challenge from Jonjo Shelvey on Paul Pogba.

In a striking similarity to his own career, Solskjaer managed to inspire Lukuku to be the super sub they needed as the Belgian scored just a minute after coming on. However, following the goal there was a controversial incident as English midfielder Shelvey lept in on Pogba, enraging the visiting fans.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Jamie Carragher said: "he should be off the pitch for that, Shelvey."

Referee Andre Marriner did speak to the Frenchman after the incident, who was visibly outraged at the tackle. Pogba took revenge shortly after crashing into his opponent late just prior to Man United doubled their advantage.
