 Pogba Misses Derby After Red Card

Paul Pogba has missed Manchester derby after Manchester United decided not to appeal the France midfielder’s red card against Arsenal in a bitter blow to Jose Mourinho’s preparations for the biggest game of the season. Pogba was sent off in the second half of United’s 3-1 win on Saturday after catching Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin with his studs.

Mourinho was unhappy that Pogba was dismissed when Arsenal’s Laurent Koscielny escaped a red card for bringing down Romelu Lukaku late in the game but United opted to accept the punishment and the manager must now plan for the visit of runaway league leaders Manchester City to Old Trafford without his best player.
