Manchester United fear Paul Pogba could miss next month’s Premier League clash with Liverpool, because of the hamstring injury he suffered against Basel on Tuesday in the Champions League.
Pogba was substituted in the 19th minute of the game and although he did not need to go to hospital, the player left Old Trafford on crutches.
The 24-year-old had a scan at United’s Carrington training base on Wednesday to determine the severity of the problem, with the club now sweating on the midfielder’s fitness for the trip to Anfield on October 14.
It is the second hamstring injury Pogba has suffered this year, after missing three games in March and April.
Manager Jose Mourinho has already ruled him out of Everton’s visit to Old Trafford on Sunday.
After Everton, United play Burton Albion, Southampton, CSKA Moscow and Crystal Palace before the next set of international fixtures.
