Manchester United record-signing Paul Pogba missed out on Jesse Lingard's surprise birthday party over the weekend and the Frenchman is pointing accusing fingers on his other teammate, Marcus Rashford.

Jesse Lingard turned 25 on Friday prior to Manchester United's 2-1 Premier League victory against West Brom on Sunday where the birthday boy continued his rich vein of goalscoring form by netting at The Hawthorns; what a special birthday gift!

Marcus Rashford and the birthday boy Jesse Lingard were both spotted together in most pictures that surfaced online during the birthday celebration.

However, Pogba who was left out of the birthday party has put all the blames on Marcus Rashford in a video that was shared online after Manchester United's victory on Sunday.

The trio of Jesse Lingard, Paul Pogba, and Marcus Rashford were all spotted having a meal together as the social media favourite, Pogba made a video to disclose that Rashford played a major role in his missing out of the birthday party.

Pogba maintained the idea was to surprise Jesse Lingard on her birthday which he planned with Rashford but the Englishman's late reply to his message caused him to miss the party. "You text him in January, he replies you in December," Lingard concurred.
