Jose Mourinho confirms Luke Shaw is available for selection against Everton

Mourinho would not elaborate on suggestions that Pogba had aggravated a long-term hamstring problem, or claims that the midfielder has been working with a personal trainer against club advice.

Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Luke Shaw is available for Manchester United again after a long-term foot injury, and wants the England defender to prove he deserves a place in his team.

Rather than following club advice, which the France worldwide was consistently asked to do, Pogba had undertaken a private training regime, and Mourinho and his medics believe this made the midfielder far more vulnerable to injury. "In my experience, muscular injuries stop you from playing for a few weeks, I think", Mourinho told United's official website.

According to The Sun, the former Chelsea boss and his technical team blame the midfielder for ignoring medical advice over his long standing hamstring issues.

We miss Pogba, we need him.

"I don't know if it's the same one - I just know it's a hamstring".

"I don't know if it's the same one".

That will mean United will have to make do without his services for Premier League meetings with Everton, Southampton and Crystal Palace.

"We have players and we have players waiting for an opportunity", Mourinho said.

Fan favourite Herrera, 28, was voted United's player of the season in 2016-17, but he has been conspicuous by his absence in the new campaign, only making his first start of the season in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Stoke City. The Frenchman was brought off the pitch in the 18th minute of the game after he pulled up, and was later seen leaving Old Trafford on crutches.

He added: "So if no Paul for Sunday, we have [Ander] Herrera, we have [Michael] Carrick, we have Fellaini and we have [Nemanja] Matic". "Sometimes in this country the word legend comes too easily, but that's not the case here".
