Paul Pogba went absolutely ballistic at Luke Shaw in Man United's win over Spurs
A lot has been made of the increased freedom at Manchester United nowadays.
Players like Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial are flourishing now that they are no longer shackled or scared to attack.
The players are also apparently not afraid to let each other know in no uncertain terms when a mistake has been made, as evidenced by Pogba's behaviour towards Luke Shaw in Sunday's 1-0 victory Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley.
Shortly before the hour-mark, Shaw sprinted forward in an attempt to challenge Kieran Trippier but the Spurs full-back saw the gap in behind his England teammate and flicked the ball over Shaw's head, into space.
Christian Eriksen was rushing into that space and was just about to latch on to the ball when Pogba caught up with the Danish playmaker and covered for Shaw by conceding a corner.
Premier League rules dictate that we cannot show footage of the exchange but we can offer you crude screenshots and a reaction from those in the stadium, so enjoy that.
Viewers couldn't make out what exactly Pogba roared but his exasperation was clear as he took up his position for the corner that followed.
Pogba bellowing at Luke Shaw as the full-back left Eriksen and chased the man with the ball. Could hear Pogba 40 rows back! #MUFC

Luke Shaw came flying out to make a tackle and lost his man. Pogba cleans up and concedes a corner and goes absolutely crazy at him. #TOTMUN

There was another exchange moments later when Pogba let fly with a wayward shot and was criticised by Shaw for doing so, to which the Frenchman replied clearly, "shut up!"
Shaw just had a go at Pogba there and was told to shut up by his teammate 🤔🤔🤔
