Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is expected to miss around three weeks of action after picking up a hamstring injury in the comfortable 3-0 victory at Old Trafford. The France international has been in excellent form for Jose Mourinho’s team at the beginning of the season and his absence will be felt as United look to kick on after an excellent start to the season.
Speaking recently, United boss, Mourinho said he expects the 24-year-old midfielder to miss several weeks of action and will most definitely miss this weekend’s clash at home to Everton.
Mourinho said, “I just know from experience it’s a muscular injury,”
“In my experience, muscular injuries stop you from playing for a few weeks, I think.”
Pogba is a classy all-action midfielder widely admired for his vision, technical prowess and box to box intelligence that makes him a threat to any defence going forward.
He struggled to replicate the performances that convinced United to shell out around £89m for his services from Juventus but has impressed alongside former Chelsea man, Nemanja Matic who was signed this summer.
The 24-year-old has been in fine form so far this season, scoring two goals and providing two assists in four games in the Premier League. Daily Star reports that the France international could be sidelined for six weeks. Games Pogba could miss include Everton, Burton Albion, Southampton, CSKA Moscow and Crystal Palace as United face a grueling September.
He made 51 appearances last season scoring nine times and United won the EFL Cup, and Europa League with Pogba starring in the Final against Ajax.
