Which Matches Paul Pogba Will Miss for Manchester United Following Liverpool Red Card - Tottenham Hotspur, Man City, and Watford Affected

Following the red card in the Premier League defeat to Liverpool on Sunday evening, Paul Pogba has now realised his fate ahead of a crucial few matches for Manchester United.

The Manchester United midfielder was a second-half substitute for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side last weekend, as he aimed to spark some sort of comeback for the struggling Old Trafford side.

Ultimately, United's defeat was made even worse at the hands of one of their fiercest rivals, as a 4-0 half-time margin was increased to five goals, and Paul Pogba's red card on the hour mark has put his team in a precarious position.

The Frenchman has now seemingly been made aware of the number of matches he will miss in the Premier League - affecting three teams who have likely been monitoring the situation closely over the past few hours.
