Paul Pogba has been in the press of late for all the wrong reasons.

Just hours after after an interview emerged of Paul Pogba saying that he 'hopes' Manchester City's title charge is hindered by injuries to key players, the French midfielder was sent off against Arsenal for a lunge on Hector Bellerin.

As we all know, Pogba will miss the Manchester derby this weekend because of a his ban and United fans sat back in their seat on Tuesday evening wondering what if.

What if Paul Pogba played against Pep Guardiola's City? How much of a miss will he be to United's team on Sunday?


Like we've seen on numerous occasions in weeks gone by, Pogba put on another show against CSKA Moscow on Tuesday evening, leaving Manchester United fans in two minds.

Of course they were delighted that Pogba was playing so well, but the fact that he'll miss Sunday's game against City was surely in the back of their minds.

Pogba's night was summed up when he produced a ridiculous piece of skill that bamboozled two CSKA Moscow players silly.

Take a bow, Paul Pogba:
