Pogba, Rashford doubtful for Manchester United- Arsenal clash

London, Sep 27 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 9/27/2019 9:30:29 AM IST

Paul Pogba is a doubt for Manchester United’s match against Arsenal on Monday Night Football, while Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial are unlikely to return.

Pogba returned to the starting line-up in United’s penalty shoot-out win over Rochdale in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, but picked up an ankle injury against the League One side.
Martial has been out of action with a thigh injury since United’s 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace at the end of last month, while Rashford picked up a groin problem during the 2-0 loss at West Ham last weekend.
“He [Pogba] finished the game [on Wednesday] and got a knock to his ankle which is very swollen so it was best for him not to go there [to the team meeting]. He is a doubt for Arsenal. That’s just the way it is,” United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said.
He added: “I wouldn’t put my life on Rashford and Martial being fit, that’s part of this game - you work with what you have.”
Left-back Luke Shaw, who has missed United’s last five matches due to a hamstring problem, could feature against the Gunners after returning to training.
“Luke Shaw is back in training today, he is getting there, so let’s see how he reacts in the next couple of days,” Solskjaer said on Friday morning.
“He’s been working hard. We hope to see him before the international break, maybe on Monday but I’m not sure.”
