Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba will not be fit to face Liverpool after the international break, according to the Daily Mail. The Frenchman has been doing some warm weather training in Dubai but he is still wearing his protective cast on his right foot.
The Mail reports that the medical staff think the 26-year-old is almost certain to miss the game against the Reds at Old Trafford on Sunday week, with it being predicted he will not return to action before the end of the month.
Supporters on Twitter are hoping that this report isn’t true, otherwise they fear a difficult afternoon when they play Liverpool:

Currently, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has ten players on the sidelines. Victor Lindelof (back) and Aaron Wan-Bissaka (illness) are the likeliest to be back in contention for United’s next game, while Anthony Martial could also be back available if he can recover from a thigh problem in time.
