There’s not been much to shout about on the injury front for Manchester United over the last few weeks, with Jose Mourinho’s side absolutely torn apart by them of late.
So, there was little surprise amongst the Red Devils in the bar to see even more bad news on that front emanate today. Per Sky Sports, Mourinho has revealed Paul Pobga will miss Thursday’s huge clash with Manchester City at the Etihad.
While the Frenchman has struggled to completely live up to his world record transfer fee, the United fans in the bar retain full confidence in the 24-year-old and his absence will undoubtedly be a notable one.
Following Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s injury, the Red Devils are lacking in two talismen for one of the most important games of the campaign, though Ander Herrea’s return to fitness will be a big boost.
