Man Utd Dealt Major Late Injury Blow: Star Ruled Out Of Liverpool Clash
Manchester United have been dealt a major late injury blow with the news that Paul Pogba has been ruled out of today’s crucial clash with Liverpool
Manchester United have been dealt a major late injury blow with the news that Paul Pogba has been ruled out of today’s crucial clash with Liverpool, according to the Telegraph.
United welcome their fierce north-west rivals to Old Trafford for the lunchtime kick off looking to cement their second-placed position in the Premier League table.
However, they’ll have to do it without their record signing as the Telegraph claim Pogba has failed to prove his fitness after picking up a late injury in training yesterday.
The newspaper says Pogba pulled-up during the closing stages of training on Friday at Carrington and was unable to complete the session as he was whisked away to undergo treatment from the clubs medical staff.
United were hoping the midfielder’s injury wasn’t serious and he would make a swift recovery but Pogba wasn’t with the rest of the squad that arrived at the Lowry hotel last night.
The Telegraph claim the 24-year-old has now been ruled out of the game today meaning Jose Mourinho is going to be forced in to a reshuffle in the middle of the park against Liverpool.
Marouane Fellaini could be an option as the Belgian international is available again after recovering from a knee injury while Michael Carrick is also pushing for a recall but Ander Herrera is still out with a hamstring injury.
Pogba has recently returned to the starting eleven after being axed for the games with Huddersfield and Sevilla last month so it will come as a huge blow for him to miss today’s crucial showdown at Old Trafford.
United currently sit second in the table but just two points ahead of Liverpool so the outcome of today’s match will have a big say in who finishes behind Manchester City this season.
