Paul Pogba has been ruled out for a few weeks with a thigh injury, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed.
The midfielder came off during the 3-3 draw against Everton and had to be replaced by Fred and he is now set for a spell on the sidelines.
Pogba knew as soon as he went down at Old Trafford on Saturday evening that he would have to come off and limped straight down the tunnel to receive treatment and scans over the weekend confirmed the damage he has done to his thigh muscle.
Solskjaer told MUTV:
“It’s an injury that will take a few weeks to heal. He’s just started his recovery, working with the medical staff and we’ll get him back as soon and as safely as we can.
“Of course, Paul has been very important for us and we’re not going to take any risks. [So it is] A few weeks definitely. You never want to be injured and, especially, now Paul was really finding his form and enjoying his football. For us, we just have to take as many points and wins as possible, when you lose players.
“We’ve been very healthy and strong for a long period so we can’t moan too much.”
