Man Utd injury, suspension list: Team news for Premier League match vs Tottenham
Paul Pogba has been declared fit for Manchester United’s visit to Tottenham  Today Clash in Premier League. 

The Frenchman missed the FA Cup third round tie against Reading last week which the United win 2-0 after sustaining a knee injury following a horror challenge from Newcastle’s Jonjo Shelvey. 

However, the issue was so serious he was forced to delay his participation in United’s warm weather training camp in Dubai as he underwent extra treatment at the club’s Carrington training base. 

But after coming through the trip unscathed, he is set to start at Wembley. 

The Coach Solskjaer said: “He looked okay towards the end, so he will be fit. 

“He did have some problems, but came through the last couple of sessions well so he should be okay.” 

Solskjaer spent the five days in Dubai preparing for the games that will have a major influence on his chances of landing the United job permanently. 

The interim manager faces what he describes as his first ‘proper test’against Tottenham – but has also been working on specific game-plans for upcoming clashes with Liverpool, Paris St Germain and Arsenal in the FA Cup. 

United flew out after victory against Reading on Saturday and returned late on Thursday.

It was evidence of Solskjaer’s determination to place Pogba at the heart of his plans that he insisted on him joining up with the rest of the squad after undergoing treatment on his knee. 

Solskjaer has so far focused his attention on getting to know his players on a one-on-one basis, rather than working on specific tactics. 

But the time spent together in Dubai was his first opportunity to do detailed work on the football he wants to bring to United. 

That, rather than trophies, is what he believes could see him beat Mauricio Pochettino to the job.

Marcos Rojo was sent home from Dubai as he continues to struggle with a knee injury. 

The centre back has been allowed to return to Argentina to aid his recuperation. 

Solskjaer added: “How long will he be out for? how long is a piece of rope? 

“For him it was mentally important to go away and come back fresh again.”

Chris Smalling is also a doubt on Sunday due to a foot injury.
