MANCHESTER. — Paul Pogba left Old Trafford on crutches following Manchester United’s 3-0 Champions League win over Basel on Tuesday night after being forced off with a hamstring injury and could face long spell on the sidelines.

Pogba could be out of action for a “few weeks” after suffering a suspected hamstring injury that took the shine off Manchester United’s successful return to the Champions League, manager Jose Mourinho said.

The Frenchman, named captain for the night by Mourinho, had to be replaced in the 19th minute by Marouane Fellaini after stretching into a challenge with Mohamed Elyounoussi.

Fellaini was only passed fit for the game on Monday after missing the 2-2 draw with Stoke on Saturday with a calf injury, but he still supplied the opening goal.

Pogba headed straight down the tunnel after leaving the pitch and will now be a doubt for Everton’s visit to Old Trafford in the English Premier League on Sunday. — ESPN.
