Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is frustrated over his red card received during victory over Arsenal.

Pogba, 24, was red carded at the Emirates during the 3-1 win over Arsenal after he reached for a ball but landed on Hector Bellerin’s calf.

It meant a three-match ban and crucially being sidelined for Sunday’s showdown with top of the table Manchester City at Old Trafford.

And Pogba said: “I’m very disappointed because I really want to help the team and wanted to be there for this derby because obviously we are playing City and in this moment we need points and we need to win.

“It’s an important moment, an important game so, like I say, disappointed.

“I think we are all playing football, to play those kind of games and unfortunately for me I won’t play. That’s destiny. I say destiny because I cannot go back in the past.

“Hector, I know him as well, and I would never give him a tackle like this. He was in a position that was a disadvantage for me so I done it.

“It looks very bad but the intention wasn’t like that. The referee, got the red card and that’s football.”
