Pogba precluded for rest of February as Utd face La Real test
Paul Pogba won't play again in February, with the Manchester United midfielder as yet two or three weeks to recuperate from a thigh injury.
Pogba has not highlighted for United since supporting the injury in their 3-3 draw with Everton on February 6.
He apparently faces a test of skill and endurance to be good for the derby with Manchester City on March 6, with administrator Ole Gunnar Solskjaer administering him out of Premier League games against Newcastle United and Chelsea just as the two legs of the Europa League last-32 tie versus Real Sociedad.
Talking in front of the principal leg of that tie, Solskjaer told a media gathering: "Paul, his recuperation, he's beginning the medicines, it'll actually be half a month.
"He will not play in February that is without a doubt. Still half a month until we see Paul, unquestionably.
"Aside from that we two or three dubious ones in the event that they'll be fit enough [to face Sociedad].
"Anthony [Martial] and Scott [McTominay], we'll need to check them tomorrow and Donny [van de Beek] and Edinson [Cavani] unquestionably not voyaging."
Muscle wounds will keep Van de Beek and Cavani out of the away leg against Sociedad on Thursday, which will happen in Turin instead of San Sebastian in view of Covid concerns.
Despite the fact that the away leg will be played at an unbiased scene, Solskjaer actually sees a side fifth in LaLiga as the hardest adversary they might have been given.
"You must be incredibly, acceptable against Sociedad, it's most likely the hardest you could pick from our unseeded gathering," he said.
"They were top of LaLiga for some time, presently they're as yet in the chase for the Champions League for one year from now, got some top players, some extremely experienced players, some quality players, some youthful excellent ones.
"We need to play at a significant level to get an outcome, obviously we do, on the grounds that the Spanish alliance is a quality one."
Joined are winless in their previous nine gatherings with Spanish resistance since beating Celta Vigo 1-0 in the semi-finals of the 2016-17 Europa League.
They have lost six of those matches, yet Solskjaer isn't worried by the set of experiences that gives off an impression of being against them.
"It's presumably down to the degree of groups we've played against," Solskjaer said of that record. "Spanish groups are acceptable, beyond a shadow of a doubt about that, and we haven't performed alright, that is without a doubt.
"We need to perform to beat a Sociedad group who are forceful protectively, they're excellent ready, acceptable belonging group, got great speed, got the greater part of the elements of a top group.
"We don't go into games stressing [about that record], yet we realize we need to perform well to get a decent outcome."
