Ole provides update on Pogba injury
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given an injury update on Paul Pogba, following Manchester United’s 3-3 draw with Everton.
A frustrating night at Old Trafford was only heightened by the Frenchman picking up a knock not long before the break, which resulted in him being replaced by Fred.
Paul appeared to pick up a problem in a fairly innocuous manner, and it seemed to be caused as he overstretched when passing the ball. Our no.6 immediately dropped to the ground and indicated he would need to be replaced.

Speaking after the game, Ole confirmed the midfielder had an issue with his thigh, which may require a scan to determine the full extent of the problem.
“Thigh, yeah,” he told MUTV commentator Stewart Gardner.
“It looks like a muscle injury, so we’ve just got to check him up tomorrow and have a scan and get him treatment. Hopefully he’ll recover quickly.”
It’s a disappointing start to February after such a stellar opening month of 2021. The midfielder was voted Player of the Month for January, while his winner against Fulham was also selected as our best strike of the month.
Paul has played 28 games in all competitions this term, scoring four and providing three assists.
The Reds’ next game comes on Tuesday, when we face West Ham United in the FA Cup fifth round and it remains to be seen whether Pogba will be in the reckoning to feature.
