Speaking ahead of United's Premier League clash with Southampton on Saturday, the Portuguese manager said he has faith in his squad and is not counting the days until the Frenchman returns to the lineup, per United:

"I don't cry or count the days until Paul Pogba comes back," says Jose. "It's a good opportunity for others. I trust them all." #MUFC https://t.co/LGIGALaOPL2017-9-22 12:33:45
However, in the Red Devils' first UEFA Champions League game of the season against Basel earlier in September, Pogba was forced off after just 19 minutes with a hamstring problem.
Initial reports indicated the France international could be out of action for three months, but Mourinho downplayed the issue, per MailOnline's Adam Shergold.
While none boast the supreme dynamism and skill of Pogba, they are all more than capable players, and Mourinho can have every confidence his side can cope without the 24-year-old given United's depth in the engine room.
