Pogba, 24, was in impressive form as United cruised to a 2-0 win over Burnley on Sunday but the afternoon appeared to end on a sour note for the France international.
Moments after seeing his shot veer just wide of Tom Heaton’s goal, Pogba fell to the floor before he was replaced in stoppage time by Michael Carrick.
Jose Mourinho is unsure whether Paul Pogba will be available for Thursday’s derby against Manchester City, Manchester Evening News reports the Coach saying ”If he is injured or if it just the super accumulation of fatigue in the muscles, I don’t know.But as I was saying, if he cannot play Thursday he cannot play Thursday. We play another one and we don’t cry, like we did today.”
Mourinho made eight changes to the side that edged past Anderlecht with Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney both scoring on their returns to the starting XI. With Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo joining Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Juan Mata on the injury list, the United boss is calling on every member of his squad to deliver when called upon.
