Paul Scholes: How Man United signing has improved Paul Pogba

Manchester United's Paul Pogba applauds fans after their Premier League match against Watford at the Old Trafford, February 11, 2017.

JOSE MOURINHO HAS confirmed Paul Pogba is now a long-term absentee with the hamstring injury he sustained in the Champions League tie with Basel two weeks ago.

Mou listing Pogba along with Ibrahimovic and Rojo, who have been out since suffering knee ligament injuries in April, does appear worrying for United.

Mourinho has repeatedly said he did not know how bad Pogba's injury was as the club continued to assess the midfielder in-house, as well as seeking specialist advice.

The injuries are piling up for United, and it's not an ideal situation for Mourinho's men given they're chasing the title and competing in all three cups as well this season. 'From all the injuries we had, I hope that I can have some players available for tomorrow.

Mourinho kept a number of players back when United travelled to CSKA Moscow in the Champions League in midweek.

"Long term injuries I don't speak about them - Ibra [Zlatan Ibrahimovic], Pogba and [Marcos] Rojo". When asked whether the Ecuador captain would be fit, Mourinho said: "We have to train but, maybe, yes".

"I think the addition of Matic has helped him and given him that bit of freedom - he's scored a couple of goals already and a couple of assists". The opposition is not the problem.

"Pogpa will not play tomorrow", he told a press conference on Friday before Crystal Palace face the seventh round of the Premiership.

"There were suggestions but not from me".
