Solskjaer provides update on McTominay & Pogba ahead of Villa


Man United vs Aston Villa

Manchester United are set to go head-to-head with Aston Villa on Sunday.

United begin the weekend’s Premier League action 9th in the table, nine points off a Champions League spot.

So, the Red Devils really can’t afford to drop any points this weekend.

Luckily for United though, the clash with Villa is at Old Trafford and Man United are a lot stronger at home this campaign, especially in the league.

But Villa will still likely prove a tough test for the Manchester powerhouse.

Dean Smith’s side have scored the most goals of the bottom 10 PL clubs this season.

OGS on Pogba & McTominay

Ahead of the key clash with Villa, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided updates on Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba.

McTominay has missed United’s last two games but Solskjaer is hopeful he will be fit for Sunday:

“We hope Scotty will be back as soon as possible, but he’s also been back home and I’ve not seen him.

“Maybe [he will be fit to face] Spurs but hopefully for Sunday.”

As for Pogba, the Frenchman has been out of action since the back end of September and Solskjaer doesn’t sound too confident he will play any role on Sunday:

“Paul is stepping up his recovery and let’s see how soon he’ll be match fit and available.

“Of course, he’ll be like a new signing for us. He’s not really been able to play for us and, when we get him back, it’ll be like a new world-class signing and world-class midfielder.

“We want him back as soon as possible. Sunday? No. I can’t say now as I’ve not been home and seen him. Let’s see where he’s at when he comes back and he starts training with us.” As quoted by Manchester United’s official website.
