Paul Pogba returns for Manchester United against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.

Pogba missed the FA Cup weekend due to injury, but returns to the starting line-up as expected for the trip to Wembley.

New Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer starts Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial in attack, with Romelu Lukaku again on the bench.

Ashley Young captains the side from right-back.

A win for United could take them into fifth place, while Spurs would move into second.

Mauricio Pochettino picks Harry Kane in attack, supported by Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Heung-Min Son - who starts his last match before departing for international duty with South Korea at the Asia Cup.

Centre-back Jan Vertonghen makes his first start since early October after recovering from a hamstring injury.
