Manchester United midfield duo Anderson and Paul Pogba have been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

Anderson has been battling to recover from a hamstring injury whilst Pogba suffered an ankle problem in a reserve game earlier this week, and boss Sir Alex Ferguson has conceded both will miss the Premier League title run-in.

"Anderson is not going to play again this season and Paul got injured in Monday and he is out for the season," said Ferguson.

The Premier League leaders are already without Scotland midfielder Darren Fletcher through illness.
