Paul Pogba and David de Gea will miss Manchester United’s Super Sunday clash against Liverpool through injury.
“David needs a scan,” United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told Sky Sports. “I think he’ll be out. It certainly looked like it anyway judging on last night so it’s just one of those things.”
De Gea’s absence means Sergio Romero will make a first league start of the season with the Argentinian only featuring in the Europa League and Carabao Cup so far this campaign.
The Spaniard joins Pogba and Jesse Lingard on the sidelines with Solskjaer saying the pair had “no chance” of being fit.
Pogba has been sidelined for five of United’s last seven games with an ongoing ankle issue, and after spending part of the international break working on his recuperation in Dubai, Solsjkaer revealed the France midfielder has suffered a setback.
