‘What witchcraft is that?’ Football fans baffled as Pogba becomes Salah in TV glitch (VIDEO)
United are hosting Liverpool in one of the most eagerly-awaited meetings between the great rivals in recent years, as the home team bid to continue their resurgence under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and deal their bitter rivals’ title hopes a major blow at the same time.
One of the keys to United’s recent form under Solskjaer – under whom they are unbeaten in nine games in the league – has been the form of star French midfielder Pogba.
Liverpool’s hopes for a first league title in 29 years, meanwhile, in a significant part lie with prolific Egyptian striker Salah.
So cue widespread confusion before Sunday's game when a TV glitch meant viewers around the world saw Pogba’s photo replace that of Salah when Jurgen Klopp’s starting team was announced.
