Manchester United could be without the services of Paul Pogba for their Premier League game against Liverpool on Saturday afternoon.
The France international has started in the previous league outings against Chelsea and Crystal Palace, both of which United have won.
According to ESPN’s Rob Dawson, Pogba suffered a knock in training on Friday, and this forced him to take medical attention away from his fellow teammates.
Suggestions that Paul Pogba had to stop training today because of an injury. Will have a fitness test tomorrow to see if he can play vs Liverpool.

The 24-year-old is however expected to have a late fitness test ahead of tomorrow’s early kick-off, but his absence could trigger a change in formation for the match.
United have gone with a 4-3-3 setup in the last two Premier League games, but Pogba’s potential injury could see Jose Mourinho revert to a 4-2-3-1 formation.
Should this be the case, Scott McTominay is likely to partner Nemanja Matic at the heart of the midfield, though Marouane Fellaini remains an option after returning to first-team training.
Manchester United are currently positioned second in the Premier League standings with 62 points, and a positive result against Liverpool on Saturday would enhance their chances of maintaining the runner-up spot ahead of the Reds, who are just two points behind them.
