Jamie Redknapp has controversially claimed that Manchester United won’t miss Paul Pogba against Manchester City.

The Red Devils will look to bring to an abrupt end Manchester City’s 13-game winning run in the Premier League on Sunday.

The leaders are looking to set a new Premier League record with 14 consecutive victories to surpass Arsenal in 2003-04 and Chelsea in 2016-17.

Manchester United warmed up for the derby with a brilliant 3-1 victory over title rivals Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium last weekend.

Pogba produced a brilliant performance at Arsenal before he received a straight red card for a reckless challenge on Hector Bellerin.

Jose Mourinho will have to come up with a masterplan to beat Manchester City without their club record signing.

Manchester United have the chance to cut the Citizens’ lead at the top to five points with a victory on Sunday evening.

Former Liverpool and Tottenham star Redknapp believes Mourinho won’t miss Pogba at Old Trafford on Sunday given his presumable approach to the derby.

“I would say against any other team they’d miss him, but against Man City, I expect Jose to unleash the dogs of war on them,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.

“I can see a situation where he turns to Herrera to mark De Bruyne. Matic will get up against Silva. I’ve seen Jose do it before.”

Pogba has scored three goals and has made five assists in seven games in the Premier League this term.
