Pogba available for Man Utd's Premier League opener despite back injury 1

The Red Devils will be without their French star on Saturday, but he should be able to face the Blues

Paul Pogba is expected to be fit for Manchester United’s Premier League opener against Chelsea after suffering a back spasm, though he will miss Saturday’s International Champions Cup clash with AC Milan.

United will face the Serie A club in their final ICC match as the only side who can knock Benfica off the top of the table in the pre-season tournament, though the Red Devils need to win by three goals or more to lift the trophy.

However, they will be without Pogba who, after a strong pre-season despite angling for a move, suffered a back issue following training on Friday.
