Paul Scholes has admitted that Manchester United have been missing Paul Pogba badly in recent weeks as the Red Devils prepare for their trip to Chelsea on Sunday.

The French midfielder has been out of action since suffering a muscular problem during Manchester United’s Champions League win over Basel earlier this season.

Jose Mourinho has not yet confirmed when Pogba will be back available for selection again as the midfielder continues to work on his fitness levels.

Manchester United are currently gearing up for their crunch clash against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

And Scholes has admitted that the Red Devils do not look like the same team when Pogba is not in the side.

Speaking on BT Sport on Tuesday night: “I think if Pogba comes back, he’ll make a difference to the way they play football.

“At the minute, you can see why the football is not entertaining.”

Manchester United head into Sunday’s game looking to gain revenge on Chelsea after the Blues beat the Red Devils 4-0 in the same fixture last season.

The Red Devils are currently second in the table and five points behind leaders Manchester City, who host Arsenal at The Etihad on Sunday afternoon.

Chelsea, meanwhile, are fourth and nine points behind the leaders after 10 games of the new campaign.
