Manchester United have been dealt a blow after Paul Pogba limped off injured after 39 minutes of Saturday’s Premier League clash with Everton.

The France international has been in excellent form in recent weeks and his injury will be a big blow to Manchester United.

Pogba picked up a thigh injury after he overstretched when making a pass to Victor Lindelof. He immediately dropped to the ground and indicated he would need to be replaced.

Speaking after the game, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed the midfielder had an issue with his thigh, which may require a scan to determine the full extent of the problem.

“Thigh, yeah,” Solskjaer told MUTV.

“It looks like a muscle injury, so we’ve just got to check him up tomorrow and have a scan and get him treatment. Hopefully he’ll recover quickly.”

Given the discomfort Pogba appeared to be in as he limped away from the action, it could be some weeks before he returns to the fold.
