It's a hamstring injury, but

That would force him to miss France's World Cup qualifiers against Bulgaria and Belarus in early October, which they need to win to guarantee a place at the finals in Russian Federation.

Mourinho reinvented Herrera as a destructive deeper lying midfielder after the Spaniard had previously flirted with #10 responsibilities and watched on as he became an automatic starter.

Marouane Fellaini will hope to replace Pogba in the starting XI against Everton, having made a goalscoring entrance to the midweek match, but faces stiff competition from Ander Herrera and Michael Carrick.

Pogba moved to Manchester United in an £89m deal from Serie A giants Juventus last summer following the appointment of Mourinho as Louis van Gaal's successor.

The United manager would only say he expects Pogba, the club's £89 million record signing, to be out for "a few matches".

"Squads are (there) to try to cope with these kind of situations and we know that for a few matches - I don't know how many, I really can not tell you how many I expect - but we are going to play without Pogba a few matches". The weekend match is the only match that I am thinking about. "In my experience, muscular injury stops you from playing for a few weeks, I think".

"I don't know [the extent]".

According to The Sun, the former Chelsea boss and his technical team blame the midfielder for ignoring medical advice over his long standing hamstring issues.

"But there are good players more than ready to play so honestly we miss Pogba, we need Pogba but we have good players".

Fan favourite Herrera, 28, was voted United's player of the season in 2016-17, but he has been conspicuous by his absence in the new campaign, only making his first start of the season in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Stoke City. This is also our way of things. Wayne Rooney will return for the first time since returning to the Toffees, while Mourinho will look to keep Manchester United at the top of the Premier League following a rampant start to the season with 10 points from a possible 12.

Pogba, 24, left Old Trafford on crutches - and scans have confirmed United's worst fears.

"Sometimes in England the word "legend" comes too easy". He is a legend of this club.

Trophies, goals. One of the most important players at United.
