Paul Pogba is a major doubt for Manchester United's FA Cup clash with Reading, caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed.

He also said that Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez are in line to start the Cup clash.

It is understood that Pogba cupped an injury during the 2-0 Premier League win over Newcastle United on Wednesday, in which he was caught by a high challenge from Jonjo Shelvey.

While Pogba is doubtful, Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo are definitely sidelined, but Solskjaer plans to play Lukaku and Sanchez as he tries to rotate his squad.

"Rojo, Smalling - they're out," he told a news conference on Friday. "I'm not sure if Paul's going to be ready; he got a knock against Newcastle. Hopefully, [Marouane] Fellaini will get through the training session today and we'll be more or less a full squad.

"There'll be a few changes and they get a chance. Some of them are itching to play. [We will] get Lukaku a start, get Sanchez a start. That's important for them because they need more game time."

United are expected to earn a comfortable win against a Reading side who sit 23rd in the Championship, and Solskjaer admits there is a level of expectation for the Red Devils to reach at least the final, as they did when they lost 1-0 to Chelsea at Wembley last season.
