Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is likely to be out until December as he continues to recover from an ankle injury.

The France international may possibly be back in time for the trip to Sheffield United in the Premier League on 24 November, but looks set to be sidelined until the final month of 2019.

Speaking to the press at Carrow Road, after the 3-1 victory against Norwich City, the boss provided the latest information on the World Cup winner, who has been out since the draw with Arsenal at the end of September.

"I don't think we'll see Paul before December," said the manager. "He'll be out for a while.

‘He needs time to fully recover. I don't think he'll be back, maybe for Sheffield United after the international break, but probably it will be December before we can see him.

‘I'm not a doctor but there is an injury there that needs healing. Yes, it's his ankle."

United's injury situation has cleared recently, with the likes of Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard and Aaron Wan-Bissaka available again.

However, Luke Shaw and Nemanja Matic are still out and Eric Bailly is still recovering from the knee injury he sustained during the pre-season tour.
