MANCHESTER UNITED are set to be without Paul Pogba for another fortnight due to a persistent thigh injury.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed the Frenchman's absence before the draw with West Brom and he may not be back until the end of the month.
According to the Mail, no timeframe has been placed on Pogba's eventual return to the side.
But it is said that he will sit out another two weeks of United's hectic fixture schedule.
A trip to Italy is next up with Real Sociedad hosting the first leg of their Europa League knockout tie, moved from San Sebastian due to coronavirus restrictions.
United then face Newcastle in the Premier League before the return leg against Sociedad, with Pogba set to miss both games.
The Frenchman, 27, is reportedly looking at a comeback against Chelsea on February 28 at the earliest.
A rare midweek off then follows before another crucial league fixture, away to Manchester City.
The situation has ended one selection headache for United boss Solskjaer, who had seemed to settle on the midfielder playing wide in his 4-2-3-1 before the injury.
Spectacular winners against Fulham and Burnley came before he featured in a defeat to Sheffield United and draw to Arsenal.

Pogba then watched the Red Devils' 9-0 demolition of Southampton from the bench and lasted just 39 minutes in the draw with Everton before the injury hit.
After the game, Solskjaer accepted that the player would 'definitely' be out for a few weeks.
He added: "We’ve been very healthy and strong for a long period, so we can’t moan too much."
