The big question is… is Graeme Souness elated or disappointed by this news?
Paul Pogba has not only been left out of the Man United starting XI for the big derby this afternoon… he’s not even made the squad.
Yes the mercurial Frenchman, so fabulous yet frustrating, was nowhere to be seen as the visitors arrived at the Etihad.
And it’s a hammer blow for a large chunk of you Dream Teamers.
Pogba has been picked by 18.3% of you – the third most popular midfielder on the game – but he will register a big fat zero this afternoon.
Despite his criticism Pogba has been one of United’s most consistent performers this season and was Man of the Match in the corresponding fixture last season as the Red Devils fought back from 2-0 down.
His 71 Dream Team points is bettered only by six midfielders too.
A chance for Marouane Fellaini to shine?
Well the big Belgian does start as United look to build on that stunning win against Juventus in midweek.
- The Premier League is losing the competitive edge that made it the best league in the world
- Diego Godin proves his superhuman qualities by scoring winner whilst injured
