Manchester United fears injury could stop Paul Pogba from taking part in Sunday’s derby clash with Manchester City after missing training on Friday.
The 25-year-old played the full 90 minutes against former club Juventus on Wednesday as Jose Mourinho’s side came back to secure a stunning 2-1 win in the Champions League.
However, Pogba’s conspicuous absence from United’s training session on Friday raises injury scare ahead of Sunday’s derby at the Etihad Stadium.
United will be hoping that what is being described as a “little injury” will not keep the World Cup winner out against City.
It is understood that Pogba did indoor work at the Aon Training Complex on Friday as a result of the injury.
Romelu Lukaku is already a doubt for the derby, having missed the trips to Bournemouth and Juventus with a hamstring injury sustained last Friday.
The striker trained with the group this Friday, as did Alexis Sanchez, who took a blow in Turin.
Mourinho said ahead of the session: “Lukaku is training with the team this morning. We have of course one more session tomorrow, but if the answer is positive, he’s ready.
“But in this moment, I can only say he trains with the team. I don’t know his answer.”
