Paul Pogba has been ruled out of Manchester United’s Premier League game against Tottenham at Old Trafford tomorrow with an ankle injury.
The French World Cup winner, who has endured a difficult start to the campaign, hasn’t played since the Red Devils’ 1-1 draw with Arsenal at the end of September.
United were hopeful that Pogba would return for their reunion with former Head Coach Jose Mourinho, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed that the 26-year-old will miss the game.
Solskjaer was asked whether Pogba would be available to face Spurs, he said: “No. Paul’s not ready, no. He’s still a bit away but he’s working hard so let’s see. He’s out on the grass, so let’s see how long it will take.”
Elsewhere, Solskjaer revealed that fellow central midfielders Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay could return, but defenders Eric Bailly and Marcos Rojo both remain sidelined.
“They’re touch and go. Let’s get this training session out of the way,” he admitted. “We’ve got more games than this one, so of course I can’t look at just the one game, we have got to look at the long-term.”
