Manchester United have been plunged into a potential crisis after Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes were both injured in a training ground collision.

The two midfielders are doubtful for Saturday’s game with Bournemouth at Old Trafford and face being sidelined as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer chases a top-four finish and glory in both the Europa League and FA Cup.

Both men were taken away for treatment – with Fernandes appearing to come off worse.
