Caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer announced that Paul Pogba will likely be fit for Manchester United’s showdown with Tottenham on Sunday

Pogba missed United’s 2-0 FA Cup win over Reading last weekend after picking up a knock from a challenge by Newcastle’s Jonjo Shelvey in their last Premier League match.

But the French midfielder joined his teammates for a mid-season training trip to Dubai with Solskjaer now feeling confident that he will be able to count on Pogba this Sunday.

“He [Pogba] looked okay towards the end [of the training camp], so he’ll be fit,” said Solskjaer on the club website.

“He did have some problems but he came through the last couple of sessions well, so he should be okay.”

Pogba, who was voted as United’s Player of the Month in December, has scored four goals and added three assists in his four games under Solskjaer.

Meanwhile, centre-back Marcos Rojo’s spell on the sidelines appears to not be ending soon after being sent home to Argentina.

Rojo last featured for United in their 2-1 Champions League defeat to Valencia on December 12.
