Paul Pogba reveals reason behind his long penalty run-up after Manchester United’s win over Everton

Paul Pogba admits he may change his penalty run-up technique following Manchester United’s 2-1 victory over Everton on Sunday.

United were awarded a penalty in the first half and Pogba once again delayed his run-up by taking over 10 seconds to strike the ball.

Jordan Pickford saved Pogba’s effort but the ball fell straight back to the French midfielder, who was able to tap the ball into the net.

Pogba also missed a penalty using a similar run-up against Burnley earlier this season, and the midfielder concedes it may be time to change his approach.

‘I was lucky, the important thing is it went in and I scored the goal, good for us and me,’ Pogba told Sky Sports.

After we carried on and had other chances, most important thing was the win.’ Asked if he will change his run-up, Pogba replied: ‘I always try and destabilise the keeper, maybe they know how I take penalties. ‘Maybe I should practice to change it, if the keepers know my step.’
