Team news: Pogba & Lukaku out of Man Utd starting XI

Manchester United will be without Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku in the derby today, according to Miguel Delaney of the Independent.

Lukaku has missed our last two games due to an injury picked up in training last Friday and Jose Mourinho confirmed in his press conference on Friday that the Belgian would be a game time decision.

According to Delaney it has now been confirmed that the striker won’t be in our starting XI. Alexis Sanchez has started our last two games in the striker’s role, whilst Jose also has Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford capable of playing up top.

In what is a second blow to us, the Independent journalist has also said this morning that Paul Pogba won’t be in the starting XI either. The 2018 World Cup winner missed training on Friday, with many suggesting that Pogba would miss today’s game.

Nemanja Matic, Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, Marouane Fellaini and Scott McTominay are all available to the boss to fill three central midfield roles between them.

Paul Pogba missed the first derby of last season due to suspension before scoring a brace when we won 3-2 at the Etihad in April.
