Paul Pogba: Manchester United midfielder to miss Premier League match against Liverpool
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has been ruled out of Sunday's Premier League meeting with leaders Liverpool at Old Trafford.
The Frenchman, 26, is suffering from a foot injury that has limited him to two appearances since the end of August.
United are two points clear of the relegation zone while Liverpool have an eight-point lead at the top.
Goalkeeper David de Gea is also a doubt for the game - he will have scans on Thursday on a groin injury.
Argentine Sergio Romero will deputise against Liverpool if De Gea is ruled out with the injury that forced him off in the second half of Spain's Euro 2020 qualifier with Sweden on Tuesday.
Pogba last played in the 1-1 draw at home to Arsenal on 30 September. He missed United's 1-0 defeat at Newcastle before the international break and has failed to recover in time to face Liverpool (Sunday, 16:30 BST)
Liverpool are eight points clear at the top of the Premier League table with a 100 per cent record from their opening eight matches, while United’s struggles have continued on from the end of last season. Calls for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s dismissal are growing ever louder, with the Red Devils sitting down in 12th and just two points off the relegation zone. United’s woeful 1-0 defeat away to Newcastle highlighted the the size of the task at hand for Solskjaer and Owen has revealed a damning stat which sums up the extent of their problems.
ncredibly, central defender Harry Maguire had more touches (4) inside the opposition penalty area than any other United player on the pitch at St James’ Park. The former England striker, who controversially turned out for both Liverpool and United during his playing days, has also predicted a comfortable victory for the Merseyside giants. ‘Manchester United have won just two of their last 13 league games (D5 L6) and a barometer of their performance at St James’ Park last time was that central defender Harry Maguire had more touches (4) in the Magpies penalty area than any other United player,’ Owen told BetVictor. ‘Liverpool will equal Manchester City’s record of 18 successive league wins if they win at Old Trafford. ‘Jurgen Klopp’s side have ridden their luck in recent weeks, but I expect them to have too much pace and aggression for this United side, although Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hopeful that he can call on the services of at least a couple of his key players returning from injury or illness.
