Paul Pogba And David De Gea Ruled Out Of Sunday's Game Against Liverpool
It is being reported that Paul Pogba and David de Gea will miss this weekend's Premier League clash against Liverpool at Old Trafford.
Sky Sports claim the pair will miss Sunday's game through injury.
De Gea suffered a groin strain during Spain's European Championship qualifier against Sweden on Tuesday night, while Pogba has been out for a number of weeks with a foot injury.
"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."
Meanwhile the injured De Gea, who was brought off in the second half of Monday's European Championship qualifier after pulling up with a suspected groin strain, is reportedly going to be out for up to two months, according to The Sun.
Solskjaer confirmed he will also miss out against Jurgen Klopp's side.
"I think he'll be out." he said. "It certainly looked like it anyway judging on last night so it's just one of those things."
"No chance, nope." :x:

The Norwegian will likely have to rely on arguably the best back up goalkeeper in the Premier League, Sergio Romero, to take the Spaniard's place.
Romero has kept six Premier League clean sheets out of seven, which should encourage United fans.
