Ole Gunnar Solskjaer came close to ending his hoodoo against Wolverhampton, but Paul Pogba had different plans.
The Frenchman was held as the sole culprit of Manchester United's Matchday 2 draw against Nuno Espiritu Santo's side, as he failed to transform a penalty kick into the game-winning goal.
Pogba tried to score his first goal of the season despite Solskjaer's instructions to let Rashford take the spot kick. Unfortunately for his supporters, Rui Patricio defended his net properly, increasing those voices urging the Frenchman not to take the penalty.
Stats show that allowing Pogba to take the penalty was not a smart move.
