Manchester United’s Paul Pogba expected back for West Bromwich Albion clash

Manchester United have been handed as massive boost as Paul Pogba is expected to recover from his hamstring injury in time for the Premier League fixture against West Bromwich Albion, according to reports.

Jose Mourinho’s men face West Bromwich on April 1, but before then he will miss Man United’s clash against Middlesbrough on 19 March and will be unavailable to play for France in the upcoming international break.

He was forced off the pitch in Thursday’s night Europa League Round of 16 victory over FC Rostov, just three minutes into the second-half as he pulled up with an injury, and news of his return is brilliant as he was expected to be sidelined for at least three weeks.

Pogba has played a vital role in Man United’s campaign this season, as a player that has played in a majority of our games without any breaks and having him unable to play would be a massive blow.

Duncan Castles claims a medical examination has confirmed no rupture was detected, which is the main reason why he’ll be back in time to face West Brom in a fortnight’s time.

It’s a shame that he’ll miss France’s World Cup qualifier in Luxembourg next week and the March 28 friendly against Spain, but Pogba needs time to rest, as many believe the reason behind his dip in form was also down to fatigue and tiredness.
