Paul Pogba will not make his return to action from injury for Manchester United in their clash with Newcastle United at St James Park on Saturday, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Telegraph is reporting that Manchester United’s home game against the Magpies will come too soon for the France international, who doesn’t want to take any unnecessary risks as he looks to get back fit as quickly as possible.

Pogba has been out of action since suffering a hamstring injury during the Champions League win over Basel back in September and the Red Devils have not yet confirmed exactly when he will make his return to the line-up.

The same report states that Pogba returned to Carrington to step up his rehabilitation last week after spending some time on his recovery in Miami.

Manchester United will be hoping to have Pogba back sooner rather than later as the hectic festive period in the Premier League looms large.

The Red Devils head into their game with Newcastle looking to get back to winning ways after the disappointment of their 1-0 loss to Chelsea before the international break left them eight points behind leaders Manchester City after 11 matches of the new campaign.
