Paul Pogba will not launch an appeal over the red card he received against Arsenal in Manchester United's 3-1 win on Saturday.

The France midfielder was dismissed in the second half after his studs-up challenge on Hector Bellerin and is banned for three matches.

The decision means he is ruled out of Sunday’s Manchester derby plus games against Bournemouth and West Brom.

He will, however, be part of the United team for their Champions League fixture against CSKA Moscow, said manager Jose Mourinho.

"He's not suspended for the Champions League. He plays tomorrow," he said.

"Of course, he's a bit tired because it was a huge match at the weekend and just two days to recover for CSKA. But he's very happy to play and to try to keep his momentum because since he was back from injury, he's been phenomenal."

Mourinho confirmed he would be without Nemanja Matic, due to injury, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who will be rested as part of his rehabilitation en route back from a knee ligament injury.
