Paul Pogba has been left out of the Manchester United squad entirely for the game against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium this evening.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had said in his press conference that he had expected the Frenchman to be available to return the team, but it appears he did not travel to London for the fixture.
Pogba had made cameo appearances against Newcastle and Watford, but was left out of the squad to face Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday as Solskjaer said he was not yet ready.
His absence from the squad is baffling seen as though United fans were under the presumption he was fit and ready to go this evening. But United are now without their two best midfielders with Scott McTominay also sidelined with a knee injury.
Instead, Fred and Matic have been selected in a midfield pivot after solid performances in the 2-0 win over Burnley.
See what Reds on social media think of Pogba’s absence, with many suggesting this could be an indication of an impending January exit.
No Pogba & McTominay, cant see us winning with Matic in midfield

No Pogba 😭 I'm happy with that front 3 though. I hope Jesse turns up in this game and Matic better have an okay game at least. https://t.co/LkeJfnr7TV

I do get the feeling Pogba is pushing for a move. Think it will be a shame personally if he does move, but having said that no player is bigger than the club. Good riddance if he wants out.
