Pogba, De Gea Ruled Out Of Manchester United – Liverpool Clash

Paul Pogba and David de Gea have been ruled out of Manchester United’s home clash against Liverpool through injury.

De Gea was forced off the field during Spain’s European Qualifier with Sweden on Tuesday with a groin injury.
 
 
While Pogba has been sidelined for five of United’s last seven games with an ongoing ankle issue.
 
Speaking on the absence of both players, Solskjaer told Sky Sports “David needs a scan. I think he’ll be out. It certainly looked like it anyway judging on last night so it’s just one of those things.”
 
For Pogba, he said:”Paul had an injury, he came back, he worked really hard. He came back and played a couple of games, maybe played through the pain barrier.
 
“He had a scan after the Arsenal game and maybe needed a few weeks’ rest in a boot so hopefully he won’t be too long, but he won’t make this game, no.”
 
 
De Gea’s absence means Sergio Romero will make a first league start of the season with the Argentinian only featuring in the Europa League and Carabao Cup so far this campaign.
 
Meanwhile, Anthony Martial, Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are expected to push for returns after injury, with Solskjaer confirming: “I can’t tell you 100 per cent [who] is going to be fit as something might happen.

“But hopefully Aaron and Anthony will last the training this week and be available for selection. If it’s for half a game or 30 minutes I don’t know but let’s see where they’re at.”
 
United have won just two of their opening eight league games and sit just two points above the drop zone in 12th place.
