Man United drew their latest Premier League game against Everton and it was a double whammy for the manager as not only did his side drop two valuable points but he also lost Paul Pogba to an injury.
The game ended with a scoreline of 3-3 but Paul Pogba had to be replaced by Fred in the 39th minute after he went down in the middle of the pitch while trying to make a very simple pass.
He went down clutching his thigh and speaking after the match, Solskjaer confirmed that the player had picked up a thigh injury, the extent of which will only be known in the coming few days.
“Thigh, yeah,” the Man United boss told MUTV, as per the club’s official website.
“It looks like a muscle injury, so we’ve just got to check him up tomorrow and have a scan and get him treatment. Hopefully he’ll recover quickly.”
Man United take on West Ham United in the FA Cup in midweek and Paul Pogba will obviously not be fit for that game but thigh injuries usually do not take very long to heel so the Frenchman should theoretically only miss a few matches.

United are back in the Europa League later this month and they will also have to face Chelsea and Manchester City in the next few weeks.
So, if the injury to Paul Pogba turns out to be too serious then it will be a major headache for Ole Solskjaer since the midfielder has been one his the team’s finest players in recent weeks and was voted the player of the month at the club for the month of January.
