Paul Pogba picked up a hamstring injury in Champions League action against Basel and could now be missing for up to six weeks.
Paul Pogba injury update was posted on his Instagram page to his 17.9million Instagram followers easing concerns over his injury.
“When you know all will be fine #pogbance @florentinpogbaofficial @mathiaspogbaofficial #family,” he wrote.
The picture showed Pogba wearing crutches alongside his footballer brothers Florentin, Mathias and his mother Yeo.
Mourinho’s key man has been vital in their rise to the Premier League’s summit, yet the manager is now without a player who is able to drive the team forward from midfield. It may not have too big an effect on United’s quest for success in the long run, but this is a significant obstacle that they must overcome if they are to solidify their title credentials.
The 24-year-old is the Premier League’s highest rated player after four games, with a WhoScored.com rating of 8.09.
Two goals and two assists means only team-mate Henrikh Mkhitaryan and striker Alvaro Morata (both with five) have been directly involved in more Premier League goals this season than Pogba. But he has delivered more than just goals and assists – Pogba has been the heartbeat of this fluid United side.
He will be missed for this weekend’s Super Sunday welcome of Everton, while United are also set to be without him for their Champions League meeting with CSKA Moscow and, crucially, the visit to Liverpool next month. Should United’s form ease off over the coming weeks, it wouldn’t be too much of a surprise
