Manager Jose Mourinho says he will wait to see if Pogba recovers in time to make the trip to Spain.

“Paul was going to play as a No.8 on the left and [Nemanja] Matic was going to play as a No.6 and Scott McTominay was going to play as a No.8 on the right but then we move Matic to the eight which is not his normal position.

“Now is the time to know about Paul, can he help us on Wednesday and to wait for information,” Mourinho told reporters after the game.

Ander Herrera is already a doubt with a thigh problem while Marouane Fellaini is still absent with a knee problem.
