Paul Pogba will not be available for selection tomorrow when Manchester United host Tottenham at Old Trafford, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed.
Pogba has been on the sidelines since the end of September due to an ankle injury. Ahead of the Premier League home match with Spurs, Solskjaer has revealed the Frenchman is still working hard on his recovery.
"No. Paul's not ready, no," he said on Tuesday.
"So, he's still a bit away, but he's working hard, so let's see. He's out [training] on the grass, so let's see how long it will take."
Matic, McTominay's potential return
The Red Devils could be handed a major injury boost with the potential return of Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic. McTominay has missed the club's last three matches since the international break after picking up an issue against Brighton. Matic meanwhile has not featured since United's barren draw with AZ Alkmaar.
"You know I don't want to talk about these injuries we've had, but of course when you get Scott back when you get Paul back... we have been light in midfield because we had Scott and Nemanja and Paul out for such a long time and that's affected us."
"[Scott and Nemanja] are touch-and-go, so let's get this [today's] training session out of the way. We've got more games than this one, so I can't just look at one game. We've got to look at the long term."
