"In my experience, muscular injuries stop you from playing for a few weeks, I think."

Pogba has made an impressive start to the season, scoring two goals and providing as many assists in four Premier League games to help United sit top.

He appears certain to miss Sunday's meeting with Everton, while Mourinho's men also have clashes with Burton Albion, Southampton, CSKA Moscow and Crystal Palace to finish September.
