Kevin De Bruyne has brilliantly responded to Paul Pogba hoping Manchester City suffer the same kind of injury problems as United.
Jose Mourinho has already been dealt with plenty of injury woes. Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo have only just returned from serious knee injuries, while Pogba came back into the fold following a hamstring injury.
Pogba, prior to his red card against Arsenal, is hoping City pick up injuries to key players.
“I hope – and it’s bad to say things like this – but I hope they will get some very important players injured like what happened with us,” Pogba told BBC’s Football Focus via Telegraph.
The French midfielder added: “People don’t see this, don’t speak about this, but every time we have important players that get injured when there is important games.
“So if that starts happening with them as well maybe we’ll get a little difference. A little touch that makes them weaker.
De Bruyne would fit into that category of ‘some very important players’, and he’s responded to Pogba.
“I don’t believe in that s***. I’m a very straight forward guy. If someone believes it is karma then OK, everyone has their right to their opinion,” he said via Goal.
“I don’t want anyone to get injured. It’s a competition, you want to play against the best teams and the best players,” the City talisman added.
