Pogba and Fernandes have had a great partnership in the last few games, and it would be a blow to United if they were to be without one or both, even for a short time.
The two players have been taken in for treatment, with concerns expressed as to whether they will be able to play against Bournemouth.

He scored six goals and provided four assists in 13 appearances for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team.

Pogba, meanwhile, has endured an extremely frustrating season that has been marred by injuries, but has shown late signs that he is getting back into shape.
The French international has been limited to just ten Premier League appearances so far this campaign.
United are in fifth place in the Premier League as they seek to secure a place in the Champions League next season, while still active in the FA Cup and the Europa League.
Before this incident, United’s injury situation was quite positive, with Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe being the only players excluded.
