Paul Pogba an injury doubt for Leicester City after limping out of Burnley draw

by Leo Nieboer

Paul Pogba is a doubt for Sunday’s visit to Leicester City after he was seen limping through the mixed area following Manchester United’s 2-2 draw with Burnley.

The Frenchman played a vital role in Man United’s late comeback from two goals down on Tuesday, scoring his 11th goal of the season from the spot to set up a grandstand finish.

He has started eight out of nine games since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over last months.

And according to the Guardian‘s Jamie Jackson, Pogba was clearly feeling the effects of a bruising encounter with Sean Dyche’s side, although the extent of the knock is unknown.

You can only hope it was a residual kind of limp players get after physically taxing, ferociously paced Premier League encounters like the one we saw yesterday. Pogba was, after all, often chopped down by Burnley players as he turned with the ball. A player who draws as many fouls as Pogba is bound to pick up knocks.

Few have benefitted from the entry of Solskjaer like Pogba, who can boast a fantastic record of eight goals and four assists since Jose Mourinho was removed.

Supporters face an anxious wait to see whether Pogba can recover in time for a difficult clash with Leicester.
