Paul Pogba is sick, set to miss United FA Cup tie

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba will miss the side's FA Cup fifth round tie with Huddersfield Town on Saturday due to illness, the club has confirmed.
Pogba, who has been substituted by United manager Jose Mourinho in the previous two games against Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United respectively, insisted at a recent press conference that claims of a rift between the pair are "not true".
The French midfielder misses out on Saturday, however, and will be replaced in the squad by 19-year-old Ethan Hamilton.
The youngster, who is a regular for United's Under-23 squad, is expected to make his senior debut for the Old Trafford club.

Hamilton has also scored once in seven UEFA Youth League games for the team.
