Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Paul Pogba has been excluded from the team against Burnley as a precautionary measure.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not named Paul Pogba among the team that travels to face Burney in the Premier League.

Paul Pogba made a return to action after spending more than three months on the sidelines following his ankle injury back in October. The Frenchman featured in the last two games for Manchester United before finally being dropped in their outing.

Ahead of the match, Man Utd manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer explained that Pogba still needs some time to fully get on his feet. The Norwegian also reported on Scott McTominay’s injury saying that he still doesn’t have concrete information on his health.

“It is a quick turnaround. We have had some players playing quite a bit. Fresh legs coming in,” Solskjaer said as reported by Goal.

“Paul has played two games now and has been out for a while so we didn’t feel it was right for him to participate today.”

“We’ve looked at Scott but we haven’t done the full scan yet. Over the weekend we will know more. It didn’t look good but we hope he’s going to heal quickly.”
