Pogba set to miss Newcastle United clash

Pogba set to miss Newcastle United clash

Manchester United could be without midfielder Paul Pogba for their weekend's trip to Newcastle United according to head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. 

Ahead of the clash, Solskjaer has conceded Pogba is unlikely to be available on Sunday as he still has a nagging ankle problem he picked against Southampton at the end of August. This saw the midfielder left out of France squad for the Euro 2020 qualifier matches against Albania and Andorra. Pogba missed matches against Leicester City and West Ham United before featuring against Rochdale and Arsenal. The Frenchman was not part of the club's squad which settled for a goalless draw with AZ Alkmaar in the Europa League on Thursday night. 

"I don't know. Let's see on Saturday morning. Probably not," said Solskjaer when asked if he would have any key players back from injury over the weekend. 

On Pogba

"Probably not, there's an international break as well, so it might be time for us to give him 10 or 14 days extra to be ready for the Liverpool game," he said.
