Paul Pogba is winning the race to be fit for Manchester United’s clash against Liverpool FC at Old Trafford next Sunday, according to a report.

The Sun is reporting that the France international is set to overcome a fractured toe to return to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side for the visit of the Premier League leaders.

The same article states that the Manchester United manager decided not to play Pogba against AZ Alkmaar and Newcastle United after the French star aggravated his ankle injury in a 1-1 draw with Arsenal.

According to the same story, Pogba has been working in Dubai with a plastic cast around his right foot and ankle to protect against further injury as he looks to maintain his fitness levels.

Manchester United can ill afford another Premier League defeat following a disappointing start to the 2019-20 season.

The Red Devils have lost three times in the Premier League following defeats by Crystal Palace, West Ham and Newcastle.

Manchester United are in 12th place in the Premier League table ahead of their clash against league leaders Liverpool FC, who sit 15 points ahead of Solskjaer’s side after a mere eight games.

The Red Devils signed Swansea City winger Daniel James, Leicester City defender Harry Maguire and Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the summer.
