The Football Association has revealed Paul Pogba is suspended for Manchester United's opening Premier League game of the season against Bournemouth on Sunday.

The midfielder joined United from Juventus for £89m in the early hours of Tuesday morning and there had been speculation he could make his debut against the Cherries despite taking a holiday in the United States following France's Euro 2016 final defeat to Portugal and only starting pre-season training this week.

However, his name has appeared on a list of four players tweeted out by the FA as suspended for this weekend, including his United team-mate Chris Smalling.

Pogba's one-match ban is a result of yellow cards he received while playing for Juventus.
