Paul Pogba: 'Something has to change' at Manchester United
MANCHESTER -- Ashley Young could find himself in trouble with the Football Association after he appeared to elbow Dusan Tadic during Manchester United's goalless draw with Southampton.
Video from the second-half of the game at Old Trafford on Saturday appears to show Young catching Tadic in the stomach with his right arm.
If the incident, that went unpunished at the time, is not included in referee Craig Pawson's match report, the FA could charge Young with violent conduct and give the 32-year-old with a three-match ban.
Young's possible lay-off will be another blow to manager Jose Mourinho, who saw his injury grow during the stalemate with Southampton.
Romelu Lukaku is set to miss the next two games after suffering a head injury, while Mourinho has also ruled out Zlatan Ibrahimovic for a month with a knee problem.
United are already without Antonio Valencia, Marouane Fellaini, Chris Smalling, Eric Bailly and Michael Carrick.
They face Everton at Goodison Park on New Year's Day, followed by an FA Cup tie with Derby County on Jan. 5 and a Premier League clash with Stoke City on Jan. 15.

Paul Pogba has called on Manchester United to "wake up" after a third consecutive draw saw them slip behind Chelsea and down to third in the Premier League table.
Draws against Leicester and Burnley either side of Christmas severely undermined United's status as challengers to Manchester City but Saturday's 0-0 at home to Southampton means they are even further off the pace.
Everton await on New Year's Day and Pogba has demanded better from his side, despite the short turnaround.
"We didn't lose but we have to wake up, bounce back and get back to winning," he told MUTV. "We drew again. Three draws we have to win, something has to change and we have to change to win.
"It's only one day and then we have to play against Everton -- that's football. Tomorrow's another day and we have to go out there and win."
On the mid-match injury to 14-goal top-scorer Romelu Lukaku, Pogba said: "When we have Romelu, he makes it difficult for defenders and creates so much space as well. He's a big miss for us but we have the team to fill the gap of Romelu."
Medical staff took every precaution in treating a potentially concerning head injury, placing the Belgian on a stretcher and fitting an oxygen mask.
By full-time Mourinho was confident the worst-case scenarios had been ruled out and was instead predicting a two-match lay-off for the forward.
As for Young, who has been one of United's most consistent performers this term, the possibility of a three-match ban lingers.
That is the tariff handed to Burnley defender James Tarkowski earlier this month after he admitted a charge of violent conduct for elbowing Brighton striker Glenn Murray.
