Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Everton

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash with managerless Everton.

Manchester United will be looking to keep their recent resurgence going when they host Everton at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils have won three games in a row, including back-to-back league wins over Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City, and could make it four on the bounce across all competitions for the first time since January.

The recent upturn in form has seen Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side close the gap on the top four to five points, although they will be wary of an Everton side that also experienced a revival under caretaker boss Duncan Ferguson last time out.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.

Paul Pogba

Possible return date: December 26 (vs. Newcastle)

Paul Pogba has been sidelined since the end of September due to an ankle injury, but a return is now in sight with the World Cup winner expected to be back in full training next week.
