David Meyler celebrated for his role in Paul Pogba's latest misfortune

Paul Pogba cops some amount of flak whenever Manchester United drop points or have an off day. Or both.

The French midfielder has not exactly taken the Premier League by storm but has played a key role in the club's top four push and challenge in three cup competitions.

Jose Mourinho has not eased Pogba's work-load one bit as he seeks to keep the team's positive momentum. That decision appears to be backfiring of late as both Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic have been sluggish in recent outings.

Last night, as United drew 0-0 with Hull at Old Trafford, Pogba took a lot of heat from fans for taking too much off each ball he received and slowing down United's play.

He also came in for a heap of slagging after he came out on the wrong side of a few dealings with Irish international David Meyler.

Pogba did leave the Hull defender on his rump at one stage but that was the height of it.

Simply put, Meyler let him know he was in a match and people loved it.
