Man United EFL Cup Unavailables: Pogba, Fellaini, Smalling, Bailly



Manchester United will host West Ham United again tomorrow night for the second of two games in three days between the two sides. The Red Devils and Hammers played to a 1-1 draw in their previous meeting on Sunday November 27th. The match was completely dominated by the Red Devils, as they owned every stat in the scoresheet, except for the one that really counts- total goals scored.

United Midfielder Ander Herrera says that the Red Devils will be out for revenge against the Hammers. Looking ahead at the roster of players available and unavailable for selection.

Paul Pogba, who said Sunday that United might end up being that they’re cursed, is suspended due to picking up his fifth booking. Likewise with Marouane Fellaini.


A duo of defenders, Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling, will be absent as well. Bailly is starting his recovery from a knee ligament injury, and he’s back in training. However, he’s still got a long way to go before returning to action. Smalling won’t be back either, as he’s still recovering from a broken toe. He’s out for an unknown period of time.

The duo have not played since the Premier League drubbing at the hands of Chelsea on October 23rd.

Also, we’ll have the link to our Man United starting XI prediction for this one up shortly.
