Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho revealed on Wednesday afternoon that the French international midfielder Paul Pogba will not face rivals City at the Etihad Stadium.
Mourinho will be without a host of players, including Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Juan Mata.
The United manager said ‘Pogba? No. Only Valencia (can play).
‘We go with what we have, we fight with what we have.
‘I trust the boys. The boys are ready.’
United travel across town knowing that a win would take them above their neighbours for the first time since August and in to prime position for a top four place in the Premier League.
