Manchester United would be without Paul Pogba until December, as he continues to recover from an ankle injury.
There is a chance the France international could come back for United's trip to Sheffield United in the Premier League on November 24 but it is most likely he won't be risked until the final month of 2019.
In his post-match press conference after United’s 3-1 against Norwich, United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, provided the latest information on the World Cup winner, who has been out since the draw with Arsenal at the end of September.
“I don't think we'll see Paul before December,” said the manager. “He'll be out for a while.
“He needs time to fully recover. I don't think he'll be back, maybe for Sheffield United after the international break, but probably it will be December before we can see him.
“I'm not a doctor but there is an injury there that needs healing. Yes, it's his ankle.”
"There’s no use talking about who’s not going to be here for a long time because he’s not going to come on the pitch and help us. Paul’s been brilliant and he is the creative midfielder that we need but then it’s up to the others to step up.”
The Red Devils have struggled to create chances in Pogba's absence, but on Sunday, they put in one of their better performances to comfortably beat Norwich 3-1 and end a four-game league run without a win.
Solskjaer's men who moved up to seventh position in the Premier League after the win at Carrow Road will face Chelsea next in the Carabao Cup Round of 16 on Wednesday before travelling to Bournemouth in the league on Saturday.
