Paul Pogba set for 4 weeks on the sidelines with hamstring injury
Manchester United could be without star midfielder Paul Pogba for the next month after the Frenchman was forced off early in United’s Champions League victory over FC Basel.
The former Juventus player lasted only 19 minutes of Manchester United’s Champions League return before leaving Old Trafford in crutches.
Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils have made a bright start to the 2017/18 campaign, notching up four wins and one draw in all competitions – Paul Pogba being at the centre of it all, flourishing with two goals and two assists.
Pogba’s injury will almost certainly see him miss out on Premier League fixtures against Everton (H), Southampton (A) and Crystal Palace (H) in the next three weeks, though there’s every chance he could be fit and ready for the blockbuster against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday, October 14.
He will also miss out on Manchester United’s next UEFA Champions League match away at CSKA Moscow, while his absence in the League Cup against Burton Albion at Old Trafford will be of little concern to his manager.
