The 28-year-old midfielder is hoping to make his 200th appearance for the Red Devils at Elland Road - the same place he was handed his debut for the club 10 years ago.

Pogba - who left the club for Serie A side Juventus in 2012 only to return four years later - was a second half substitute in LS11 during a League Cup clash in 2011.

The Frenchman has become a key figure under head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford and, if selected, will bring up a landmark against the Whites on Sunday afternoon.

“Obviously, it’s a great achievement for me, playing against Leeds, I know the history with Leeds and I know it’s going to be a good game," Pogba said ahead of kick-off.

"And, for me, 200 you say? I’m surprised. I didn’t know. I remember I started, playing my first game was against Leeds, and now it’s 200 so it’s kind of beautiful for an achievement.

"And the most important thing, I hope, I really hope that we win my 200th game.”
