Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba and goalkeeper David De Gea will miss Sunday's Premier League clash with Liverpool.

Pogba has been battling an ankle problem and United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed that the 26-year-old has suffered a setback in his recovery.

Solskjaer said: "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.

"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."

De Gea was forced off in Spain's Euro 2020 qualifier against Sweden on Tuesday night and Solskjaer admits he is also set to miss the Liverpool clash at Old Trafford.

"I think he'll be out. It certainly looked like it anyway judging on last night so it's just one of those things," Solskjaer added.
