Manchester United will carry out an assessment on Paul Pogba on Sunday after he was forced off in the Premier League draw against Everton with an apparent muscle injury.
The 27-year-old was replaced by Fred in the 39th minute after he pulled up and appeared to clutch his thigh.
Pogba did not require a stretcher and walked down the tunnel.
“It seemed like a muscle injury,” United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said. “He’s fine, we’ll check him out tomorrow and we’ll see how serious it is. I hope it’s not too bad but he didn’t carry on so had to take him off.”
Fred started ahead of Pogba in the 9-0 thrashing of Southampton on Wednesday when the £89million midfielder was an unused substitute.
United host West Ham in the FA Cup fifth round on Tuesday night and travel to West Brom in the Premier League next Sunday and the France international is a doubt.
The Red Devils take on Real Sociedad in their round-of-32 Europa League ties later this month and entertain Newcastle in the league on February 21 before heading to Chelsea a week later.
