The Manchester United record signing joins Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma for dinner
Paul Pogba and Kurt Zouma cast their Premier League rivalry to one side as the Manchester United midfielder joined the Chelsea defender for dinner on Monday night.
The Red Devils playmaker endured a frustrating weekend after Jose Mourinho’s side squandered a 1-0 lead to draw 1-1 with Everton at Goodison Park after Leighton Baines’ late penalty cancelled out Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s opener.
The 20-time English champions are a staggering 13 points adrift of the Premier League leaders Chelsea after the west London side were 3-1 winners against title rivals Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium last weekend.
Diego Costa, Willian and Eden Hazard netted second-half goals to overturn Gary Cahill’s own goal and seal three points for Antonio Conte’s side at the home of their title rivals.
Chelsea centre-half hasn’t made a first-team appearance under Conte as the France international continues rehabilitation from a serious knee injury.
However, Zouma appeared in good spirits as he posted the above Instagram photo with Pogba and wrote the following caption:
“Great dinner with my brothers 🍗🍗 @paulpogba #mam’ss#welovechicken”
