Paul Pogba will sit out Manchester United's match against Newcastle with an ankle injury.

The injury also forced him to miss the side's Europa League clash against AZ Alkmaar, which ended in a 0-0 draw.

Pogba has been hobbled by the injury for the past month.

"It might be time for us to give Paul 10 or 14 days extra to be ready for Liverpool," said Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
