Man Utd wait on midfield duo but will be without Pogba for Mourinho return

Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic are “touch and go” for Manchester United’s clash with Tottenham – a match Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has ruled Paul Pogba out of.

McTominay has missed three games with an ankle complaint, while fellow midfielder Matic has not played for two months with an unspecified issue.

Pogba remains out as he recovers from an ankle injury, while Eric Bailly, Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Diogo Dalot continue to build fitness after injury.

Tottenham have no fresh injury concerns for Jose Mourinho’s return to Old Trafford.

Spurs are still without Erik Lamela (hamstring), Ben Davies (ankle) and Michel Vorm (calf).

Hugo Lloris (elbow) is a long-term absentee and is not expected to be fit until 2020.

Manchester United provisional squad: De Gea, Romero, Grant, Wan-Bissaka, Young, Jones, Laird, Lindelof, Tuanzebe, Maguire, Shaw, Williams, Fred, Garner, Gomes, McTominay, Matic, James, Lingard, Mata, Pereira, Chong, Greenwood, Martial, Rashford.

Tottenham provisional squad: Tottenham provisional squad: Gazzaniga, Whiteman, Aurier, Walker-Peters, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Sanchez, Rose, Dier, Winks, Sissoko, Ndombele, Dele, Eriksen, Lo Celso, Lucas, Son, Kane.
