Big blow for Manchester United
Manchester United duo Paul Pogba and David de Gea have been ruled out of their Premier League clash with Liverpool this weekend.
It’s been a less than ideal season for Manchester United so far.
The Red Devils have started the season poorly, despite beginning the campaign with a 4-0 win over Chelsea.
Since then, United have suffered disappointing losses at the hands of Crystal Palace, West Ham and Newcastle.
There have also been poor performances against the likes of Southampton and Rochdale.
That has left Ole Gunnar Solskjaer under pressure.
Despite being given the dreaded vote of confidence recently, Man United have been heavily linked with a move for Massimiliano Allegri.
Now, there’s even more bad news for Solskjaer ahead of his side’s clash with Premier League leaders Liverpool this weekend.
De Gea & Pogba ruled out vs Liverpool
According to Solskjaer, as cited by Sky Sports, both Paul Pogba and David de Gea have been ruled out of the game this weekend.
Starting with De Gea, it was confirmed during the international break that the Spaniard had picked up a groin injury.
Now, Ole has confirmed that David de Gea looks set to miss the game.
“I think he’ll be out,” he explained to Sky.
“It certainly looked like it anyway judging on last night so it’s just one of those things.”
Meanwhile, Paul Pogba will also miss the game this weekend.
The Frenchman hasn’t featured for Manchester United since facing Arsenal on September 30th.
Despite hopes that he could return this weekend after an Instagram post this week, Solskjaer confirmed that both he and Jesse Lingard have “no chance” of being ready.
