Paul Pogba initially picked up an ankle injury in late August. He faced Arsenal in September after making his comeback before the problem flared up again.

In early December, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer suggested Pogba should be fit before the end of 2019. However, he had another setback with an illness later in the month.

After that, Pogba returned to the pitch for halves against Watford and Newcastle, before missing out on the squad in their last game against Burnley. It was a little bit of a rollercoaster ride to get to this point, but Solskjaer thinks Pogba is now fit to face Arsenal.

“Yeah, I would think so,” Solskjaer said. “When you’ve been out for such a while, it’s always going to take time to be 100 per cent. He just needed another day, probably, of recovery.”

Pogba did well in his last couple of appearances, so it’s just another player for Arsenal to worry about. Since the trip to Old Trafford in September, Marcus Rashford found form, Anthony Martial returned to fitness and Mason Greenwood established himself in the first team.

At least Arsenal don’t have any defensive injuries to worry about. Apart from Hector Bellerin, Kieran Tierney, Rob Holding, Sead Kolasinac, Calum Chambers and Sokratis Papastathopoulos. No big deal.
