Paul Pogba will miss a large chunk of February after suffering an injury against Everton
Manchester United have suffered an injury blow, with the news that Paul Pogba is set to miss at least three weeks with a thigh injury picked up against Everton.
The France midfielder was forced off with the issue after just 39 minutes against the Toffees, just days after being named United’s Player of the Month for January.
Speaking ahead of the FA Cup game against West Ham, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed the injury will be managed carefully, and mentioned no risks being taken over his recovery.
The World Cup winner has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer, but excellent form recently has seen him become an integral part of Solskjaer’s plans as United try and keep pace with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table.
Without Pogba, some more game time for Donny Van de Beek could be on the cards, with the Dutch midfielder struggling to break into the side since his summer move from Ajax. Fred, Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic are also all fit and available to step into Pogba’s midfield role.
