Paul Pogba’s absence for Manchester United’s clash against Manchester City on Super Sunday will delight Pep Guardiola, according to Leon Osman.
United’s 3-1 win over Arsenal on Saturday was soured by Pogba’s second half dismissal for a dangerous tackle on Hector Bellerin, which sees the midfielder miss the clash at Old Trafford, live on Sky Sports.
Guardiola’s side sit eight points clear at the top of the Premier League after a topflight record of 13 successive wins in a season, while United are second with five wins from their last six games heading into the clash.
Osman claims Pogba’s absence in United’s midfield will affect the game “massively”.
Paul Pogba will miss Sunday’s Manchester derby following his dismissal against Arsenal. He told Sky Sports News: “He [Pogba] is the key to Manchester United’s style of play.
“The size of Manchester United, not many players can take the team on their shoulders and he’s come back and done that. He’s been the driving force behind that team”.
