Paul Pogba has been running on an anti-gravity treadmill as he steps up his recovery for Manchester United. The France star has been suffering from a hamstring problem after limping off early in United's 3-0 win over Basel last month - an injury manager Jose Mourinho later bracketed as "long-term".

The 24-year-old has been in Miami recovering and took to Instagram to share the latest from his rehabilitation in the USA, as reported by Sky Sports. The Red Devils share a joint lead of the table and travel to Anfield on Saturday having won six of their seven Premier League games.

Pogba has been using an anti-gravity treadmill, popular in modern recovery methods, which helps keep up cardiovascular work without stressing injuries. The France international also tested his upper body strength and his hamstrings and using a battle rope.

The Manchester United midfielder posted a series of videos on social media on Wednesday showing him jogging on a treadmill and working in the gym.

Jose Mourinho has so far refused to put a timescale on United's record signing's return but has admitted the midfielder is considered a "long-term" absentee along with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo.

As reported by ESPN, France manager Didier Deschamps is not expecting Pogba to be available before the next international break which begins on November 6 -- the day after United meet Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Pogba has missed five games since he was forced off after 19 minutes of the 3-0 win over Basel in the Champions League on September 12 and will also miss United's Premier League clash with Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.

The United boss is also set to be without Marouane Fellaini, who sustained a knee injury playing for Belgium. The midfielder was substituted during the first half of their 4-3 win over Bosnia and Herzegovina after suffering strained knee ligaments.

Romelu Lukaku is expected to be fit to face Liverpool after playing the final 23 minutes of Belgium's World Cup qualifier with Cyprus on Tuesday.

The striker missed the game against Bosnia with an ankle injury he suffered in training before United's 4-0 win over Crystal Palace ahead of the international break.
