Eric Bailly scores from ZERO yards and everyone wants to know if Paul Pogba gets the assist

Swansea frustrated Man United at the Liberty Stadium in the first half until the Ivory Coast defender broke the deadlock

Goal time!

Paul Pogba connected cleanly with a corner and his header left Lukasz Fabianski scrambling around on his line after the Swans keeper had tipped the ball onto the bar.

But the ex-Arsenal stopper could only watch on as United’s Ivorian centre-back studded the ball across the line.

The goal came as a relief to Jose Mourinho and United fans everywhere who had watched their side be frustrated by some organised defending from the hosts.

However, with Dream Team fantasy football on everyone’s mind, fans everywhere desperately wanted to know whether or not Pogba’s header earned him an assist.

We’re here to tell you that our providers WhoScored have not credited Pogba with the assist.

Sorry, Paul.

There’s still time for him to rack up some points though… or get sent off.
