Cape Town - Paul Pogba will return to Manchester United's starting line-up for Sunday's trip to Arsenal but the Red Devils are still plagued by injuries.

The France international was suspended for Wednesday night's thrilling Champions League second-leg victory against Paris Saint-Germain but he will return for another big encounter at the Emirates.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was forced to name five teenagers on his bench at the Parc des Princes and the Norwegian coach will once again have to do without some key personnel.

Eric Bailly, Alexis Sanchez, Matteo Darmian, Nemanja Matic, Antonio Valencia, Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard are all set to miss out on the encounter in north London.

In better news, Solskjaer will be hoping forward Anthony Martial and defender Phil Jones will be available to face the Gunners after recovering from a groin injury and illness respectively.
