Paul Pogba will miss Manchester United’s crucial Premier League game against Manchester City after the club decided not to appeal his suspension.
After setting up two goals for his side, the 24-year-old was sent off in the 3-1 win over Arsenal for a stamp on Hector Bellerin in the second half.
Jose Mourinho’s side are looking to narrow the eight-point gap between them and the unbeaten leaders when they meet at Old Trafford on Sunday.
But reports in the UK state they have accepted they will be without the star midfielder, who has three goals and five assists in eight league appearances this term.
As a result, Pogba will miss the clash against Pep Guardiola’s team, as well as games against Bournemouth and West Brom.
