Paul Pogba debuts this Adidas ACE17+ Purecontrol boot in the anticipated match between Manchester United and Liverpool. The boot features a beautiful black design with a golden backheel and undersole, details in gold and black adidas trademark stripes on the sides. Adidas and Pogba are working more closely since the Frenchman rejoined Manchester United from Juventus in the 2016 summer for a world record fee of £89.3 million.
The highly anticipated encounter with arch-rivals Liverpool will be the teams 50th meeting in the Premier League, a competition that as yet Liverpool have never won but Manchester United won 13 times. Out of 49 Premier League meetings since the competition was launched in 1992, Manchester United have the upper hand with 27 wins. Under the guidance of their head coach Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool have yet to score a league goal against United. Pogba and star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic have formed a great partnership for the Red Devils, and Zlatan returned 12 goals in his last 12 matches played in all competitions for Manchester United. Having hit the post five times in the Premier League in the 2016-17 season, Pogba will be hoping for better luck wearing his new Adidas boot.
