As per a report from the Manchester Evening News, Paul Pogba is not part of the Manchester United squad that has travelled to take on Arsenal.
Arsenal vs Man United
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are set to return to action tomorrow night, with a high-profile trip to the Emirates.
The Red Devils will head into proceedings on the back of a bounce-back result last time out.
After falling to a shock defeat at the hands of relegation-battling Watford in their previous outing, United got firmly back on track with an impressive 2-0 win over Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday.
Arsenal, on the other hand, saw their frankly-abysmal recent stretch of form continue, with a 2-1 defeat at home to Chelsea.
The Gunners have now managed just a solitary victory in their last 15 fixtures across all competitions.
Pogba misses out
Arsenal’s hopes of turning things around tomorrow night, though, have this evening been handed a boost.
This comes in the form of an update on Manchester United’s travelling squad.
The reliable Manchester Evening News have revealed that one of the Red Devils’ star men was not present with the rest of the club’s squad that boarded a train to London a short time ago.
The absent individual? Paul Pogba.
French midfielder Pogba only recently returned from a lengthy spell on the sidelines with an ankle injury.
The 26-year-old, though, was not part of the Manchester United squad that put Burnley to the sword on Saturday night.
And, based on the MEN’s update, Pogba looks set to miss his 2nd-straight outing, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s 21-man squad to take on Arsenal showcased below:
David de Gea, Sergio Romero, Lee Grant, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, Phil Jones, Brandon Williams, Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, Nemanja Matic, Fred, Andreas Pereira, Jesse Lingard, Daniel James, Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood, Tahith Chong, Angel Gomes
