Manchester United fear Paul Pogba could face another TWO WEEKS out due to thigh injury which forced him to limp off against Everton… as midfielder faces race against time to be fit for Chelsea and Man City games
Manchester United fear Paul Pogba could miss at least another fortnight with the thigh injury that has ruled him out for the previous two games.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have been without Pogba since he limped off in the 3-3 draw against Everton on February 6.
But the World Cup winner is set to miss another two weeks meaning he could be absent for the vital Europa League games against Real Sociedad and the Premier League clash versus Newcastle on Sunday.

Pogba could be available for either of the two crucial league games against Chelsea on February 28 or the Manchester derby a week later but no definitive timescale is being put on his return.
United have stuttered in Pogba’s absence, drawing against the Toffees in a game they were twice leading, needing extra time to beat West Ham in the FA Cup before recording a 1-1 draw against relegation threatened West Brom on Sunday.
And his eventual return to fitness will come as a timely boost to Solskjaer, whose side’s title tilt has faltered in recent weeks.
Pogba enters the final year of his United deal in the summer and will delay any decision over his future until the end of the season.
