Paul Pogba is set to return from injury in time to face Arsenal, according to Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Pogba had to withdraw from international duty with France earlier this month due to an ankle problem. Matteo Guendouzi ended up taking the United midfielder’s place in the national squad, and Pogba’s yet to return to the pitch since then.

Solskjaer says it won’t be long now though, and he’s hopeful Pogba will even be able to get some game time on Wednesday against Rochdale, putting him in a great position for Arsenal the following Monday.

“He’ll probably get some minutes against Rochdale,” Solskjaer said. “But we definitely think he’s ready for Arsenal.”

Marcus Rashford has been ruled out of the clash, but ahead of United’s midweek League Cup match Solskjaer also confirmed that Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial will ‘hopefully’ be back for the Arsenal game too.

It wouldn’t be an Arsenal trip to Old Trafford without somebody coming back from injury just in time or stepping up from the academy for their first Premier League goal. Greenwood’s return makes it pretty likely we could see both at once. Fantastic!
