Injured Pogba could be out for 'weeks', says Mourinho

Injured Pogba could be out for 'weeks', says Mourinho

The Frenchman has got the new season off to a strong start, scoring two goals and creating two more to help United to the top of the early standings, but was hit with an injury blow last night as he limped off early during United's Champions League win over Basel.

Paul Pogba could be out of action for a "few weeks" after suffering a suspected hamstring injury that took the shine off Manchester United's successful return to the Champions League, manager Jose Mourinho said.

"They train together always in the same team because I knew that they had to play this match together". "Big? Small? I don't know, but hamstring for sure".

Having been reduced to a watching brief since the UEFA Super Cup, Tuesday's Champions League opener against Basle was Lindelof's first taste of playing at Old Trafford - a night the Swede will not only cherish but build on.

'If Lindelof has to play in the Premier League I have no problem with that, ' said Mourinho.

Voted last season's Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year, the United boss confirmed his absence from the squad was down to the options at his disposal rather than injury.

"It looks for me too [like a hamstring injury] but I haven't spoken yet to the medical department".

Fellaini claimed 80 per cent of the votes in our Twitter poll, with Ashley Young receiving 13 per cent and Nemanja Matic seven per cent.

United acted quickly to make the long-standing defensive target Jose Mourinho's first summer signing, paying Benfica an initial 35million euros (£30.75million) for the Sweden international's services. If his condition improves he will be selected because I need him.

"You have to be ready to fight for the position and I am disappointed he left".
