Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes believes that the injury to Paul Pogba will dent the club’s title chances.
Pogba couldn’t complete the first half of the club’s last outing against Everton and according to Scholes, the absence of the Frenchman cost the club the entire three points in the game and will prove crucial in the long run.
"If you're talking about title hopes, it's a big blow for them, of course, it is. I just feel Paul Pogba going off was a big moment in the game. I thought they had complete control up to that point.
"Fred coming on, they lost control in the middle of the pitch. Gomes, Doucoure, and Davies really started to take control of the game and that was a big blow for United. Conceding a goal that late, it's not a good look. Are they totally out of it? It's going to be difficult from now on I think. But they've got to keep going, they've got to keep fighting, they've got to keep believing," Scholes told the Premier League Productions.
With City winning against Liverpool on Sunday, United are now five points below the leaders who still have a game in hand.
