Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is still a major doubt for the match against Liverpool. Hopes were raised earlier this week that the Frenchman would recover in time from a foot injury, but sources have told the Manchester Evening News that they are pessimistic about the player’s chances of playing on Sunday.
The 26-year-old has been in Dubai for warm-weather training during the international break but he continues to wear a protective boot and he’s yet to report back to Carrington ahead of this weekend’s fixture.
David De Gea is also a doubt for the Liverpool game. The 28-year-old had to be substituted at half time in Spain’s 1-1 draw against Sweden last night after picking up a thigh strain.
In contrast, Victor Lindelof played the full 90 minutes after recovering from a back injury that kept him out of the 1-0 defeat to Newcastle last time out. There’s similar good news for Anthony Martial with United confident that he’ll make the matchday squad following a thigh injury. The Frenchman has been sidelined since the 2-1 loss against Crystal Palace back in August.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka is believed to have recovered sufficiently from tonsilitis while Luke Shaw (hamstring) and Marcus Rashford (groin) are both ready to play on Sunday. However, Eric Bailly (knee), Diogo Dalot (groin), Jesse Lingard (hamstring) and Phil Jones (knock) are still on the treatment table.
