United travelled to North London last weekend to face Arsenal and secured all three points convincingly. But what might hurt the Gunners supporters even more than the loss is this image of Thierry Henry and Paul Pogba.
The French midfielder was one of the most vital cogs in Jose Mourinho’s side against the Londoners, especially in the second half. Pogba provided a stunning assist towards the latter stages of the match, by bullying Laurent Koscielny off the ball to cross it to Jesse Lingard.
On the other hand, as witnessed before, the Arsenal legend is a common personality at the Emirates during this thrilling fixture.
However, a picture of Henry, William Gallas, Robert Pires, Mourinho and Pogba that surfaced soon after the full-time whistle has given the United supporters another opportunity to take a fresh new dig at the Gooners.

Though at first glance it looks like a very harmless or normal photo to most, many were quick to point out what looks like a Man Utd shirt in the former French international’s hand. Moreover, many fans have speculated that shirt belongs to none other than Pogba.

Losing the match despite their commendable performance was bad enough for the Emirates outfit’s fan base, but this latest find has put them further into embarrassment.
