Paul Pogba missed training yesterday

Paul Pogba is an injury doubt for Manchester United's huge derby clash with Manchester City tomorrow.

The 25-year-old missed training yesterday after playing the full 90 minutes against former club Juventus on Wednesday as Jose Mourinho's men came back to secure a stunning 2-1 win in the Champions League.

However, Pogba was conspicuous by his absence from United's training session on Friday - an unneeded injury scare ahead of Sunday's derby at the Etihad Stadium, where he netted a brace in April's 3-2 victory.

The Red Devils will be hoping that what is being described as a "little injury" will not keep the World Cup winner out against City. Pogba did indoor work at the Aon Training Complex yesterday as a result of the issue.

Romelu Lukaku is already a doubt for the derby, having missed the trips to Bournemouth and Juventus with a hamstring injury sustained last Friday.

The striker trained with the group yesterday, as did Alexis Sanchez, who took a blow in Turin.

Mourinho said ahead of the session: "Lukaku is training with the team this morning.

"We have of course one more session tomorrow, but if the answer is positive, he's ready.

"But in this moment, I can only say he trains with the team. I don't know his answer."
