Pogba started the campaign in superb fashion, bagging seven assists in just four Premier League games.
However, his form curtailed thereafter, and he found himself regularly on the bench. The Frenchman was recently sent off in the humiliating 5-0 league defeat to Liverpool at Old Trafford.
The £54m-rated star has already served two games of the three-match suspension, but it now appears that he may not be available for the trip to Chelsea before the end of the month.
Pogba’s injury is a definite blow for the Red Devils, who are already dealing with the absence of Raphael Varane. The centre-back is out for November with a hamstring injury.
United’s league form been poor over the past couple of months. They picked up 13 points after the opening five games, but have accumulated just four more from the next six matches.
There have been concerns in both defence and midfield. Scott McTominay and Fred have received plenty of fan criticism, having struggled to dominate the opposition from the centre of the park.
Pogba has played higher up the field for United this term, but on his day, he is one of the best central midfielders. His potential absence could open up a spot for Donny van de Beek.
The Netherlands international has been largely ignored by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the league duties. He has been limited to just 16 minutes of playing time in the top-flight this term.
He will be hoping for a change in fortunes. With Solskjaer’s job on the line, he may make multiple changes after the international break. Van de Beek could be handed a regular run of games.
