Arsenal or Man City?
Arsenal host Man United in the Premier League on December 2nd.
If Paul Pogba isn’t available for the Gunners game, then perhaps he’ll be fit a few days later for Man united’s match against CSKA Moscow in the Champions League.
Alternatively, Man United may hold the midfielder back until the derby against City on December 10.
The first Manchester derby of the season takes place at Old Trafford.
What games will Pogba miss?
Pogba will miss upcoming games against Swansea, Spurs, Benfica, Chelsea, Newcastle and Basel.
That’s a huge loss for the Red Devils, as Mourinho’s men has struggled in recent weeks.
Pogba’s presence in the centre of the pitch was key for United in the opening weeks of the season. He contributed two goals in four games in the league.
Bad news for Phil Jones
One of Man United’s standout performers this season has been centre-half Phil Jones.
However, Jones has struggled with injuries throughout the season. Indeed, the defender had to withdraw from the last England get-together as the Three Lions booked their place at next summer’s World Cup.
At Huddersfield on Saturday, Phil Jones need to exit the game after just 21 minutes.
He was replaced by Lindelof, with the likes of Eric Bailly still sidelined.
Fans are now waiting to find out how bad Jones’s injury is.
Little information has surfaced about the injury on Saturday night, save for the following update from the Daily Express:
Defender Jones appeared to injure his leg while making a last-ditch tackle and as he walked down the tunnel, he told reporters he’d picked up a problem with his quadriceps.
Before limping off, the England defender was pictured punching the turf clearly frustrated at picking up the injury.
