As a result, Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may now leave Pogba out of this Thursday’s Europa League tie with AZ Alkmaar, according to ESPN.

This is a blow for United and for Pogba, with the France international looking unconvincing against Arsenal after missing a lot of games recently.

While many fans will no doubt question if Pogba will really be missed, it’s clear the 26-year-old cannot get into his groove and fulfil his true potential unless he gets a run of games together.

Man Utd were unconvincing in their Europa League win over Astana and could do with a strong line up against AZ, who will most likely be tougher opponents.
