Rivals join Man United fans in questioning Pogba POTM’s omission

Rival fans join Man United counterparts in questioning Pogba POTM's omission

Manchester United supporters and rival clubs alike have taken to social media tonight to question Paul Pogba’s surprising absence from the nominees for the latest Premier League Player of the Month award.

Antonio the favorite

The 6-man shortlist for the first POTM award for the new campaign was unveiled today.

The list featured a series of predictable inclusions, with West Ham United hitman Michail Antonio joined by Irons creator Said Benrahma.

Also named were Everton’s summer addition Demarai Gray, Chelsea winger Marcos Alonso and rejuvenated Tottenham Hotspur defender Eric Dier.

Rounding out the contenders for the August award was Manchester United star Mason Greenwood, who has so far managed to find the net in the club’s three league outings.

The missing man

While it would be difficult to argue with most of the inclusions on the Premier League nominees list, there was certainly one notable exclusion.

The name in question? Paul Pogba.

French international Pogba has just come off a good start to the campaign, in which he surprisingly posted no fewer than five assists in his first three Premier League appearances.

The midfielder’s absence on Thursday, in turn, has led to a predictable backlash on social media.

Fans of not just Manchester United, but even rival clubs, have taken to Twitter in numbers to wonder how and why Pogba was overlooked:
