Manchester United’s David de Gea will join Paul Pogba on the sidelines for Manchester United’s Sunday clash with Liverpool, after being forced off the field during Spain’s European qualifier against Sweden on Tuesday with an apparent groin injury.

The 28-year-old goalkeeper’s absence would add to the woes of the Manchester-based club, with the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer-led side stuck struggling at the bottom half of the league table.

“David needs a scan,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports. “I think he’ll be out. It certainly looked like it anyway judging on last night so it’s just one of those things.”

Their French talisman Paul Pogba has been also ruled out of the clash against the league leaders, owing to an ongoing ankle issue.On the other hand, Jesse Lingard is also ruled out of the rivalry match, with the likes of Anthony Martial, Luke Shaw, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka expected to make late pushes for returns after injury. Although, the Spanish goalkeeper’s unavailability would offer Sergio Romero his first league start of the season.
