Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea and midfielder Paul Pogba have been ruled out of Sunday's Premier League game against Liverpool.

De Gea underwent scans after suffering an injury in Spain's Euro 2020 qualifying clash with Sweden, but will not be fit for the Sunday's crunch clash.

Pogba, who has missed four of United's last seven games with an ankle injury, was in a race to get fit for the weekend but will also miss the derby.

The Frenchman was in Dubai over the international break for warm-weather training, but has not yet made enough progress to face Liverpool.

Injuries to the pair comes as a huge blow for Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who has a crisis on his hands at Old Trafford.
