Mourinho on Pogba's absence: "Paul is injured. He was injured during the game in Turin. He resisted. He felt that he could resist. He felt that was such a crucial match for the team. He made that sacrifice for us & then it was impossible for him to recover for this” (Sky) #MCIMUN

Pogba will be a huge miss for United this afternoon and Mourinho has opted for a midfield three of Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic and Wednesday night’s Champions League hero Marouane Fellaini.
Pogba’s absence could prove to be significant and the Red Devils are tasked with doing the entire league a favour by stopping Manchester City in their tracks this afternoon.
Fans and pundits alike have suggested that Pep Guardiola’s side could run away with the Premier League once again.
