Manchester United's Paul Pogba Is Now 'Injury Prone' In Latest FIFA 21 Update

Paul Pogba is now 'injury prone' on FIFA 21 following the game's latest update.

The new title update dropped on March 19 and is able to be downloaded on PC, Xbox and PlayStation consoles.

Although gameplay remains the same, it includes a series of changes on game modes such as FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, Career Mode and Volta as well as some ratings tweaks.

France midfielder Pogba remains 86-rated on the game but won't be best pleased with the new, unwanted trait he has been given.

In the new update, Pogba is now much more likely to get injured when a collision occurs - therefore making him considerably less appealing to FIFA players.

The change comes after Pogba's real-life injury issues at Manchester United. He's been suffering from a recurring ankle problem in recent times and only recently returned from a hamstring problem that forced him off in a 3-3 draw against Everton in February.

The former Juventus man missed ten games in total, before coming off the bench and scoring the winner against AC Milan in the Europa League round of 16 second leg last week.

There is good FIFA 21 news for other United players, however. As per the Manchester Evening News, Luke Shaw and Victor Lindelof have both been given overall upgrades on the game, with Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka both seeing attribute increases.

After a fine season, Shaw has gone up from 81 to 82 - with increases in a plethora of attributes such as crossing (81-84), short passing (80-81), positioning (77-78), vision (78-80), composure (81-82), curve (82-83), ball control (79-80), reactions (80-81), jumping (79-80) and stamina (78-79).

Lindelof is now an 80-rated centre-back having been 79 previously, while Maguire's long passing (83-84), reactions (81-82), stamina (80-81) and interceptions (82-83) have all improved.

Wan-Bissaka, the final member of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first-choice backline, has also seen a few increases when it comes to reactions (81-82), balance (70-72), jumping (60-67) and stamina (79-81).

Alex Telles will be disappointed to learn his overall rating has decreased by one from 84 to 83 following downgrades to his crossing (89-87), heading accuracy (71-70), short passing (83-82), dribbling (79-78), ball control (82-81), interceptions (80-79) and marking (80-78).
