Jose Mourinho has provided an injury update on his Manchester United players ahead of the Premier League clash against Manchester City.

The Portuguese boss has confirmed that Paul Pogba will not be in action, but Antonio Valencia could return alongside Ander Herrera.

Man United sit one point behind fourth-placed Man City in the Premier League and a win on Thursday night could see them finally enter the top four.

Speaking in his press conference, Mourinho insisted he has to just go with the players that are fit.

“We go with what we have,” he said.

“We fight with what we have, I trust the boys and I go with everything we have and we go until the last season, the boys, our fighters and we hope.”

Pogba has been a vital player at United this season and it’s just another setback as many first-team players are currently left out on the sidelines.

He pulled up in the closing minutes of the 2-0 win at Burnley and hopes are he’ll be back in action soon as it’ll be a massive blow to have him left out.
