Manchester United played West Brom on Saturday, and dropped a couple more points at Old Trafford. However, they don’t have much time to dwell on that result with Ronald Koeman bringing his Everton team to Manchester tomorrow night.
This game is huge, especially as The Toffees only sit three points away from us in the table, albeit United have a couple of games in hand. That said, Everton will be coming here to try and cause an upset.
Jose Mourinho has met the media ahead of what will be an intriguing clash, and has given an injury update on Paul Pogba, who missed the aforementioned West Brom game.
Now, it looks as though the self-proclaimed Special One is keeping his cards close to his chest regarding the French midfielder. He has revealed that he ‘cannot say’ Pogba is ready for the game, but to me, that means he has a chance of playing.
‘Pogba I cannot say is ready for Tuesday because I don’t know but Pogba is not such a long-term injury as the others,’ said Mourinho, as per The Metro.
Hopefully, this means that Pogba isn’t too far away from a return. We really missed the creativity he brings to the table, and it will be huge having him back; particularly with a rather piled up fixture list at present.
Jose Mourinho and his players desperately need a home victory tomorrow night, because the confidence must be dwindling after a couple of abject draws. Three points against a tough Everton side would be massive.
