The FA have had to write to clubs twice in a week to remind them of the importance of following coronavirus protocols, after several instances marred the third round of the FA Cup.
In incident happened during United’s vital away game to Burnley where if Olé Gunnar Solskjaer’s men win they will leapfrog Liverpool and go three points clear at the top of the league.
Paul Pogba had given the visitors the lead with a lovely strike from outside the box that deflected off a burnley defender through the goalkeepers legs.
Following Pogba’s goal he and defender Eric Bailly initiated a goal celebration that involved hand-shaking and close contact between their faces.
Pogba was wearing gloves in the incident but the FA may not be too happy with the optics and the continued attitude of footballs to ignore the strict Covid restrictions.
