Paul Pogba trains with United reserves as he continues recovery

Michael Carrick is understood to have been combating a virus which has made him dizzy

The view is to name the France worldwide, who has been sidelined for two months with a hamstring injury, on the bench at home to Newcastle on November 18. Since then, he has been on the sidelines as United suffered two league defeats against Huddersfield Town and Chelsea in the process.

Jose Mourinho's side have been without the services of the midfielder for 12 matches, but reports this week claimed Pogba was nearing a return and could return in time for their next Premier League game, with Newcastle, on November 18.

Paul Pogba has stated that Manchester United and France teammate, Anthony Martial is one of the best players he has played with. Mourinho has given a week off to his star players who are not involved in global duties. The list includes the likes of Chris Smalling, Juan Mata, Ander Herrera and Scott McTominay.

Phil Jones will be an injury concern for Manchester United's home game against Newcastle United on Saturday after the centre-back was withdrawn from the England squad having picked up a thigh injury during the first half of the friendly against Germany.


But in Pogba's absence, the Red Devils have created just seven chances and scored 1.6 goals per game.

Carrick has only featured for United once on September 20 in the Carabao Cup win over Burton Albion, but could be back by next week.

Better still, Michael Carrick and Marcos Rojo are also on the comeback trail, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic continues to train separately.

The French worldwide has been slowly working his way back to full fitness over the past two months but Pogba is now intensifying his work-load and should be in the squad to face Newcastle on November 18.
