Man United vs Man City - Pogba misses City clash due to suspension



Posted Friday, December 08, 2017 by PA

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba starts a three-match ban as bitter rivals Manchester City arrive on Sunday.

The France international was sent off in last weekend's win at Arsenal and begins his domestic ban on Sunday, joining captain Michael Carrick and defender Eric Bailly on the side-lines.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Phil Jones and Nemanja Matic are available for the derby, while midfielder Marouane Fellaini will be assessed ahead of the game.

Manchester City playmaker David Silva is fit but captain Vincent Kompany is doubtful.

Silva has overcome the knock which forced him to miss the midweek loss at Shakhtar Donetsk but Kompany will be assessed over an unspecified problem.

Makeshift left-back Fabian Delph has recovered from a sickness bug but defenders John Stones (hamstring) and Benjamin Mendy (knee) are still out.
