Even when Paul Pogba doesn’t play, he’s the butt of the jokes.

The Manchester United midfielder has made a slow start to the 2016-17 season after making his return to Old Trafford for a world-record fee.

Presumably at home watching the EFL action, Pogba probably thought he was safe from the criticism he’s gotten from his recent performances. And he’s received plenty.

Yet Liverpool fans found reason to mock the 23-year-old during the Reds’ EFL Cup contest against Derby County.

We’re still waiting for the France international to score his first goal for United. He hit the crossbar in United’s 3-1 defeat to Watford but other than that, he hasn’t come close to getting on the scoresheet.

The same can’t be said for Ragnar Klavan, who scored the first goal in Liverpool’s 3-0 win at Pride Park.

Liverpool supporters were never going to pass on the chance to mock Pogba when their 30-year-old centre-back, who cost £4.2 million compared to Pogba’s £89m fee, opened his account.

Check out Klavan’s goal below.

Jurgen Klopp’s team breezed into the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup in convincing style. They were 1-0 up at half-time and goals from Philippe Coutinho and Divock Origi in the 50th and 54th minute secured the win.

Liverpool are aiming to go one step further than they did in the League Cup last season, when they lost to Manchester City in the final.

How far can Liverpool go in the EFL Cup yet? Let us know in the comments section below!
