Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided a welcome injury update on Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.
The Frenchman has been out of action after he was seen limping following United’s draw away to Southampton last month.
Solskjaer was already short in options before Pogba’s knock, but his absence has left a midfield lacking any creativity or dynamism.
But, speaking to the official United app, the United boss is now confident his key midfielder will return for Monday’s night’s game against Arsenal at Old Trafford.
“He’ll probably get some minutes against Rochdale, but we definitely think he’s ready for Arsenal.”
After a woeful performance in the defeat against West Ham on Sunday, where the Reds were the clearly inferior side, there is pressure on Solskjaer to motivate his players to get two home victories this week.
Wednesday’s game against Rochdale should give the United boss the chance to rotate his squad, and perhaps give an opportunity to the likes of James Garner to get a first-team run out.
Pogba’s presence should only be required to improve his match fitness, as he looks to be back firing for the clash against Arsenal.
