Man Utd decide not to appeal Pogba red card

Paul Pogba will start against CSKA Moscow on Tuesday after Manchester United decided not to appeal against his red card at Arsenal.

The France midfielder was dismissed at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday and is set to serve a three-game domestic ban. It means he'll miss the Manchester derby against Manchester City on Sunday.

It is understood United have not contested the dismissal and that the FA will not impose an additional punishment after Pogba appeared to respond to the red card with a sarcastic clap.
