Jose Mourinho gives update on Paul Pogba injury


Paul Pogba limped off inside the opening 20 minutes of Manchester United’s opening Champions League group stage game this evening.

The French international appeared to have a problem with his left hamstring and was quickly replaced by Marouane Fellaini.

It was the Belgian who opened the scoring on 35 minutes with a fine header before goals from Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford secured three points.

Speaking after the game, Mourinho could not confirm the severity of Pogba’s injury, saying:

“I don’t know honestly but by experience it is a hamstring. Big? Small? I don’t know.

“I haven’t spoken with the medical department, this is why we have a squad, we won’t cry about injuries.”

Paul Pogba will definitely miss this weekend’s game versus Everton.  He wouldn’t have expected to face Burton Albion in the FA Cup in a week’s time, whilst we go to Southampton in the Premier League (23rd), CSKA Moscow in the Champions League (27th) and host Crystal Palace in the Premier League (30th) before the international break.

Marouane Fellaini had an excellent game in the centre of midfield alongside Nemanja Matic.  We also have Ander Herrera and Michael Carrick as cover in this position.
