Paul Pogba has been left out of Manchester United's starting line-up for their Premier League trip to Newcastle.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has instead opted for a midfield pairing of Scott McTominay and Fred.

Why has Paul Pogba been dropped?

Pogba was one the players heavily criticised following United's 6-1 defeat to Tottenham prior to the international break.

Solskjaer will likely explain his team selection during his pre-match interview.

However, the Red Devils face Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Tuesday which may have played a part in Pogba starting from the bench.

During the week, United took the decision to trigger a one-year option on Pogba's contract.

The Frenchman's deal at Old Trafford now runs until June 2022.

"Paul's our player, he's going to be here for another two years and sure he's focused on doing his best for us and we want to see the best for Paul," Solskjaer said.

"In the next couple of years I'm sure we'll get the best out of him."
