In an ignominious return for their former manager David Moyes, Manchester United defeated Sunderland 3-1 at Old Trafford in a memorable Boxing Day match on Monday. The Red Devils dominated the match, and went 3-0 up before Fabio Borini produced a late consolation goal with a stunning volley.
The moment of the match came in the 87th minute, as Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored the Red Devils’ third goal of the match in audacious fashion.
As Zlatan curled in a cross from the right, the Armenian realised that he was ahead of the ball to head it in – so he produced one of the greatest moments in Old Trafford history, by deciding to “scorpion kick” the ball in.
The goal sent the fans and players alike into a shock and awe, and the feeling can be summed up by watching Paul Pogba’s reaction to the goal.
Running over to celebrate with the audacious Armenian, Pogba was seen with his eyes bulging in awe, and repeatedly mouthing “no way” at nobody in particular.
With 3 goals and 2 assists in his last 5 games, the Armenian is finally stepping up for the Red Devils. Check out Pogba’s reaction to the goal below!
