Pogba & Fellaini: Man United updates before Valencia

Manchester United vs Valencia

Manchester United travel to Valencia on Wednesday for their final Champions League group game.

United currently sit 2nd in Group H on 10 points having won three, drawn one and lost one.

Their final group game sees them face third-place Valencia, but with the Spanish side on just five points, there is no danger of United not qualifying.

Man United could, in theory, still top their group as they are just two points behind group leaders, Juventus.

However, Juventus’ last game is against bottom of the group, Young Boys.

Young Boys have failed to win any of their group games this campaign, drawing one and losing four.

So, it is very likely Juventus will pick up a win to top the group.

As a result, it is likely Jose Mourinho will play a weakened side.

Ahead of the game, BBC Sport’s Simon Stone tweeted a picture of both Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini with the caption ‘He’s playing tomorrow’.

Given United are likely to field a week team to rest their top players ahead of Sunday’s clash with Liverpool, both Pogba and Fellaini could well be starting.

Pogba came on as a sub as United drew with Arsenal and then did not feature as United beat Fulham 4-1 in their last match.

So, it looks as though the Frenchman is slowly slipping down the United midfielder’s pecking order.

Fellaini was also a sub vs Arsenal and did not feature vs Fulham.

Chris Smalling, Diogo Dalot, Anthony Martial, Luke Shaw and Matteo Darmian were also absent from Tuesday’s training session, meaning they are all likely to be left out vs Valencia.
