Pogba’s side have won their last three English top flight matches but are still eight points behind league leaders Manchester City ahead of the crucial clash with Lacazette’s side.
Pep Guardiola’s men grabbed a late winner against Southampton on Wednesday night to establish themselves at the top of the table.
