Henrikh Mkhitaryan has admitted that Paul Pogba’s injury is a blow to Manchester United.

The France international captained the Red Devils for the first time last week in Manchester United’s 3-0 win against Basel in the Champions League.

However, Pogba was forced off in the first half of the European clash at Old Trafford due to a hamstring problem to curtail his impressive start to the season.

The club’s record signing scored two goals in their opening four Premier League games to suggest that the Frenchman is finding his feet in Jose Mourinho’s team.

Manchester United didn’t appear to miss Pogba at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon following goals from Antonio Valencia, Mkhitaryan, Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial in a 4-0 win against Everton.

However, Armenia international Mkhitaryan warned Manchester United that Pogba’s absence would be felt given the French midfielder’s growing importance to Mourinho’s team.

“It’s hard, because he’s a top player for us,” Mkhitaryan told SFR Sport.

“It’s going to be very difficult, but the coach knows how to make up for that and we’re going to help him come back stronger.”

Manchester United signed Pogba in a then world-record £89m deal from Serie A giants Juventus in the 2016 summer transfer window.

The Red Devils finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last season but won the EFL Cup and the Europa League.

Manchester United signed Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof in the summer transfer window.
