Manchester United will not be able to call upon £89m midfielder Paul Pogba today at Old Trafford.
The Frenchman pulled up in training yesterday and according to the Telegraph, has now been ruled out.
Pogba’s not been pulling up trees recently, but it’s a major blow to United who often rely on the 24-year-old’s creativity centrally.
We think it could be decisive, with Liverpool heading into the game in spectacular form:

In his place, Nemanja Matic will anchor the side, with Ander Herrera and Scott McTominay also likely to feature.
Liverpool are in the fortunate position of having six midfielders all fit and battling for three spots, right now.
Jordan Henderson has overcome his dead leg, meaning he’ll likely anchor the side. Gini Wijnaldum is also over his illness, and will fight for one of the two spots alongside the skipper with Emre Can, James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Adam Lallana.
