Manchester United have been delt another blow ahead of their potentially explosive Premier League game against Liverpool on Sunday after it was revealed that Paul Pogba will miss it due to injury.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men host Jurgen Klopp’s run-away leaders at Old Trafford and Pogba becomes the second ‘regular’ player this week to be confirmed out of the historic clash, after goalkeeper David DeGea limped off in Spain’s Euro 2022 qualifier against Sweden.
Solskjaer confirmed that the Frenchman will miss the clash.
“He came back and played a couple of games, maybe played through the pain barrier,” the Norwegian told MUTV.
“He had a scan after the Arsenal game and maybe needed a few weeks’ rest in a boot, so hopefully he won’t be too long, but he won’t make this game, no.” he added.
