Jose Mourinho has said he considers Paul Pogba to be a "long-term" injury absentee for Manchester United along with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo.

Pogba has missed the last four games with a hamstring injury and will sit out Crystal Palace's visit to Old Trafford on Saturday.

Sources have told ESPN FC that the France international could now be ruled out until November.

And speaking at his weekly news conference at Carrington on Friday, Mourinho said: "It's not an injury that I can have the hope I have with [Antonio] Valencia or [Phil] Jones. I have the hope to see them in training.

"Long-term injuries, I don't speak about them. Ibra, Pogba, Rojo, I don't think about these players."

Valencia, Jones, Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick also missed the 4-1 Champions League win over CSKA Moscow on Wednesday, while Anthony Martial was forced off in the second half.
