Paul Pogba faces a race against time to be fit for Manchester United’s upcoming Premier League game against Liverpool.

The 26-year-old French international has been diagnosed with a cracked toe which he sustained in United’s recent League Cup win over Rochdale.

How has Pogba’s season gone so far? Five key things to know…

  • Paul Pogba made his desire to leave Old Trafford known in the summer.
  • Real Madrid were heavily linked with the Frenchman but a move never transpired.
  • Pogba has since played six matches in all competitions, registering just two assists.
  • He sustained a foot injury in United’s recent League Cup win over Rochdale.
  • Pogba is a doubt for their upcoming league game against Liverpool at home.

Pogba nevertheless played in the Red Devils’ Premier League draw with Arsenal before sitting out their subsequent meetings with AZ Alkmaar and Newcastle. Any fears of undergoing surgery have been allayed with L’Équipe reporting that Man Utd have decided to go down the natural route.

He’s presently in the United Arab Emirates to undergo a warm-weather recovery programme to accelerate his comeback – which normally takes two to three weeks – meaning he’s a doubt for the mouthwatering showdown against table-toppers Liverpool at Old Trafford on October 20.
