Paul Pogba trains with United reserves as he continues recovery

Paul Pogba has missed 12 games for Manchester United because of a hamstring tear

Paul Pogba has missed 12 games for Manchester United because of a hamstring tear

The France global picked up a hamstring injury in United's Champions League win over Basel in September. Even during the start of the season, he helped the team a lot.

United desperately miss Paul Pogba and Mourinho will feel another attacking midfielder is needed - with Nemanja Matic covering the defence, and having adequate cover himself with Ander Herrara.

Manchester United have lost two of their last three Premier League games and are now eight points behind league leaders and neighbors Manchester City. Since then, he has been on the sidelines as United suffered two league defeats against Huddersfield Town and Chelsea in the process.

As well as contributing to attacking phases of the game, the statistics also show Pogba's importance to his side's defence.

The video below is also an eye opener as to what Paul Pogba provides off the pitch.

West Ham appoint David Moyes as new manager
West Ham fans are in uproar over the club's decision to appoint Moyes, with the board shocked by the strength of feeling against him.

The Frenchman has been out since September but was in attendance at the Stade de France.

After the game, Pogba was present to greet the France squad as they came off the pitch and his handshake repertoire is seriously impressive.

Jose Mourinho's side have been without the services of the midfielder for 12 matches, but reports this week claimed Pogba was nearing a return and could return in time for their next Premier League game, with Newcastle, on November 18.

Martial has also earned an worldwide recall on the back of his exploits, with Pogba convinced that there is still more to come from a player he holds in the highest regard.

Romelu Lukaku, who is going through something of a goal drought for his club, will be hoping Pogba returns.
