Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed on Wednesday that Paul Pogba is set to miss “a few weeks” due to the latest flare-up of the ongoing ankle injury which has kept him out of action on multiple occasions already this season.

Pogba missed nearly three months before returning to action in late December. He made two substitute appearances against Watford and Newcastle United before Solskjaer said he “wasn’t ready” for the weekend trip to Burnley.

Asked why Pogba had been left out of the 18-man squad again for Wednesday’s game at Arsenal, Solskjaer delivered the longer-term diagnosis — quotes from Sky Sports:

“He is feeling some discomfort in his ankle. He’ll be out for a few weeks, definitely.”
