Paul Pogba did not feature for Manchester United against Liverpool after picking up an injury in training, and he did not train Monday either.

Whether that means he’s being rested or an indicator of a longer absence is unknown, and United hosts Sevilla in a must-win UEFA Champions League second leg after posting a nil-nil first leg in Spain.

The Times reports that Pogba was injured in a training accident with teammate Scott McTominay.

Pogba missed United’s 2-1 win over Liverpool, bringing the Red Devils’ record to 7W-1D-3L when he misses a league match this season and 13W-4D-2L when he’s in the fold.

United is 3-0 without Pogba in the Champions League, and advanced stats site WhoScored says he’s far down their pecking order in European performance (though it also says he’s their top dog in Premier League play).
