Fernandes, who has excelled since joining United in January, is said to have come off worse
Pogba and Fernandes have struck up an excellent partnership in recent games, and it would be a major blow to United if they were to be without either or both of them, even for a short period.
Both players were taken away for treatment, with concerns raised regarding whether they will be able to feature against Bournemouth.
Fernandes has made a superb impact since joining United from Sporting Lisbon in January.
He has scored six goals and provided four assists in 13 appearances for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
Pogba has endured much frustration with injuries and will hope to avoid another spell out
The midfielder has helped to transform United, with his slick passing a key asset.
Pogba, meanwhile, has endured a hugely frustrating season which has been marred by injuries but has shown signs of late that he is getting back to his best.
The France international has been restricted to just ten appearances in the Premier League so far this campaign.
United are in fifth place in the Premier League as they seek to secure a place in next season’s Champions League, while they are also still active in the FA Cup and the Europa League.
Prior to this incident United’s injury situation was rather positive, with Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe the only players sidelined.
The news will be concerning for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with his side facing a hectic schedule
