Key star left out of squad for Saturday’s game
Manchester United will be looking to book a place in the quarter finals of the FA Cup on Saturday but the team will not be at full-strength.
Jose Mourinho saw his side succumb to a disappointing 1-0 loss to Newcastle United last Sunday in the Premier League as they fell further behind Manchester City.
With the title race seemingly over, the Red Devils manager will have to look elsewhere for silverware this season.
That is definitely why Saturday’s clash with Huddersfield Town holds a lot of importance towards the 2017/18 season in general.
But United will not be able to name a full-strength starting eleven, following the news that Paul Pogba has been withdrawn from the match-day squad.
The former Juventus star has struggled to impress in recent weeks, prompting rumours that he could be leaving the club.
But it appears that his absence this weekend has more to do with a fitness concern rather than anything else.
Gutted I won’t be at Huddersfield but I need to get better. Come on United ?? @ManUtd
