Paul Pogba is set for a scan after limping off injured in the first half of Manchester United’s game against Everton, according to report.
The French midfielder appeared to feel something go in his right thigh, and immediately signalled to the bench.
Pogba had just played a pass forward when he pulled up, and his night under the Old Trafford lights was cut short.
He was replaced by Fred, with United 1-0 up thanks to Edinson Cavani’s header.
After the game, boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed: “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.”
And things got even better for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s side to soften the blow of losing the enigmatic Pogba.
Bruno Fernandes once again showed his class with a stunning goal just seconds before half time.
Pogba was restored to the starting line up for the visit of the Toffees after sitting out the 9-0 slaughtering of Southampton.
And he had made a solid start to the game before pulling up injured.
United dominated the ball in the first half, seeing 61 per cent possession to Everton’s 39.
And the Red Devils were rewarded with two goals for their efforts.
