Ahead of Manchester United’s Premier League clash with Liverpool on Sunday, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed Manchester United will be without David De Gea and Paul Pogba.

De Gea limped off during Spain’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Sweden on Tuesday with an abductor problem while Pogba has missed five of United’s past matches due to an ankle injury.

“David needs a scan,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports. “I think he’ll be out. It certainly looked like it anyway judging on last night so it’s just one of those things.”

“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,” Solskjaer said.

“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.”
