The big news for Manchester United and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is that star player Paul Pogba is back in the squad ahead of the Premier League opener against Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday evening.

Pogba missed the last friendly game against Italian Serie A giants AC Milan with a back problem but the Frenchman is back in the squad for the mammoth clash with Chelsea.

The ex-Arsenal and Barcelona star is recovering from a hamstring injury.
