Solskjaer sets return date for Pogba, Luke Shaw

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has indicated Paul Pogba will be back to the team in early December. 

The French midfielder has been out of action for weeks now, recovering from a knee injury he sustained from the last international break. 

Speaking in his pre-match address ahead of the club's Europa League match against FK Partizan, Solskjaer noted that the midfielder is on road to full recovery. 

“I think Paul said it himself, didn't he?” said Solskjaer. “It won’t be too long until he’s out of his cast and he’s going to work through the international break. Hopefully, we’ll have him back in early December.”

The Norwegian further provided an update on Luke Shaw, who trained away from the group on Wednesday.

There are no further details on Axel Tuanzebe, Diogo Dalot, Nemanja Matic and Angel Gomes, all of whom are still missing with injury, with Solskjaer indicating he might have some of them back soon.  

“Nothing to report,” Ole stressed. “No updates from the last few weeks. Hopefully, after the international break, we can get a few more back.”

They will also be without Victor Lindelof, even though the manager is hoping to have him back for the weekend match.

Man United will book a place in the next round with a win against the Serbia side, whom they beat 1-0 last time out.
