Here are the Manchester United evening headlines on Sunday, February 7.
Pogba injury latest
Manchester United will assess the injury to Paul Pogba after the midfielder limped off in Saturday’s 3-3 draw with Everton.
Pogba, who has looked back to his best for United in recent weeks, pulled up on 39 minutes and appeared to clutch his thigh before leaving the field.
“It seemed like a muscle injury,” United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said. “He’s fine, we’ll check him out tomorrow and we’ll see how serious it is. I hope it’s not too bad but he didn’t carry on so had to take him off.”
United will now assess the problem, but he could miss the FA Cup fifth-round clash with West Ham United on Tuesday night.
The France midfielder missed three games in November with an ankle injury and could be set for another spell on the sidelines.

Fernandes names two changes United need to make
Bruno Fernandes has admitted that there is plenty to improve on for United after their draw with Everton.
United were 2-0 up at half-time before a spirited fightback from the visitors at Old Trafford. The hosts eventually made it 3-2 but the score finished level after Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s stoppage-time equaliser.
Fernandes, who scored United’s second goal of the game with a wonderful strike, has suggested the two things his side need to change in order to improve on their latest showing in Manchester.
“There are a lot of things to be disappointed with,” he told MUTV after the match.
“We were making so many mistakes in the last few games and we can’t keep conceding goals like that. We have to be more focused, we have to have the same desire to score and to defend our goal.
“Every time we have to make goals and score goals it has to be the same to not concede and I think we have to learn from this.
“It has already happened a lot of times so it is more than a bit disappointing. You talk about everything that is going on but it is about learning and make it better.”

Glazers return to the limelight for Super Bowl
The Glazer family are set to return to the spotlight this weekend, as their NFL franchise, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, are involved in the Super Bowl.
The Glazers have owned United since 2005, but a member of the family has not been in attendance for a game since August 2019.
Joel Glazer has been so vocal regarding the Buccaneers and when asked to ‘accept the George Halas Trophy’, the 50-year-old could hardly wait.
He said: “We’re just so happy, so proud of all these players, so proud of Jason Licht, Bruce Arians, the entire team. And Tampa, we’re coming home!”
It has been nearly 16 years since Joel Glazer spoke to the supporters of United, despite his insistence on communication with the fan base being ‘extremely important’.
