Man Utd duo suffer foot injuries

Manchester United could be sweating on the fitness of Raphael Varane and Paul Pogba ahead of next weekend's Premier League clash against Leicester City.

Varane recently picked a foot injury during France's international friendly against Ivory Coast. It is now reported that Pogba has sustained a similar setback in training.

The news will come as a potential blow for the Red Devils, who have already had to cope without the duo for a number of matches this term.

Their top-four hopes are currently on the line, and they will be hoping that the pair are fully fit ahead of the Foxes meeting on Saturday evening.

United are presently lying sixth in the Premier League standings with 50 points, four adrift of fourth-placed Arsenal, who have a game in hand.

They have no room for errors hereafter, but it could be a difficult challenge against the Foxes, who have beaten them for three straight games.

The reverse meeting at the King Power Stadium finished 4-2 in the Foxes' favour.
