Paul Pogba injured after 10 minutes against Liverpool, Gary Neville says his Manchester United career could be over
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba’s night against Liverpool ended after just 10 minutes.
With the Red Devils already trailing 1-0 at Anfield, Pogba appeared to pick up a knock to his ankle and hobbled off.
Pogba was replaced by Jesse Lingard, with Bruno Fernandes moving back to partner Nemanja Matic in midfield. United conceded a second goal soon after Pogba went off.
Fred is currently out injured, and while Scott McTominay did make the bench, he was not fit enough to play 80 minutes.

The end is approaching
While unclear the extent of Pogba’s injury, former United star Gary Neville speculated his career at the club could be over.
Pogba’s contract at United expires in June and there is a chance the injury prevents him playing again this season.
Neville told Sky Sports: “You’re thinking that could be Paul Pogba’s last minutes in a Manchester United shirt we’ve just seen.”
Pogba has never beaten Liverpool in a league match in six years at the club, and this was his last opportunity.
Just like earlier in the season, his stint ended early. Last time he came on at Old Trafford at half-time and was sent off after 15 minutes for a wild tackle on Naby Keita.
The Frenchman then picked up an injury on international duty which cost him three months on the sidelines.
Nobody would be surprised if this latest injury kept him out for the remainder of the campaign, even though it looked innocuous enough.
United’s next games are in the Premier League away at Arsenal and at home to Chelsea.
