Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba will miss Saturday's FA Cup clash at Huddersfield due to illness, the club have announced.
On Friday, United boss Jose Mourinho had insisted the 24-year-old would play after addressing what he said were "lies" about a supposed bust-up between player and manager.
It seemed the France international would be given an opportunity to turn around his recent dip in form, having being substituted in defeats to Tottenham and Newcastle, and being benched for the recent win over Huddersfield in the Premier League .
But the club announced on Twitter on Saturday morning that the midfielder will sit out the game, which you can hear LIVE on talkSPORT.
