Pogba misses training ahead of Sevilla tieMarch 12, 2018
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has missed training ahead of the Champions League clash with Sevilla on Tuesday evening.
The French midfielder has been labelled with criticism this season for some hot and cold performances, whilst the Jose Mourinho’s side have performed well in his absence.
The 2-1 win over Liverpool at the weekend saw Pogba miss out through injury, which he suffered last Friday in training and it has now been confirmed that he has missed the open training session on Monday morning.
Anthony Martial and Zlatan Ibrahimovic did return to training, as did Eric Bailly, formerly of Villarreal, despite suffering a knock in the weekend win.
United will be without Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Ander Herrera and Daley Blind, who all missed out through various problems.
The tie is wide open after the first leg which ended 0-0 at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, but Sevilla’s defeat to Valencia at the weekend makes Mourinho’s side the slight favourites.
Saturday’s win over Jurgen Klopp’s men came after a superb double from Marcus Rashford and it consolidated United’s grip on second place in the Premier League table.
As for Sevilla, they remain in the hunt for the Champions League places, but the defeat to Valencia now sees them sit 11 points behind.
