Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba will return to first-team action at home to Rochdale in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, after recovering from an ankle injury.

United host the League One side in the third round of the Carabao Cup and will be boosted by the return of Pogba, who has missed the last three games against Leicester, Astana and West Ham.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed he will rotate his squad and the France international is going to play some part before a pivotal Premier League clash with Arsenal on Monday Night Football.

Solskjaer said: "He'll probably get some minutes against Rochdale. But we definitely think he's ready for Arsenal."

Also returning is 17-year-old striker Mason Greenwood, fresh from his match-winning goal against Astana in the Europa League on Thursday.

Greenwood missed the 2-0 defeat to West Ham on Sunday due to tonsillitis and will be United's only recognised striker in the squad after Marcus Rashford came off injured at the London Stadium.
