The Frenchman was a second half substitute at Spurs, with his introduction playing a pivotal part in earning United a precious point away from home.
Pogba showed flashes of brilliance, playing behind Bruno with Scott McTominay at the base of midfield.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now looks set to start the three in his midfield, but must decide who between Fred and Dan James misses out.
The Norwegian has no injury concerns but Victor Lindelof who was forced out in the second half could be replaced with Eric Bailly who will partner with Harry Maguire in the heart of defence.
Having shown his faith in David de Gea despite his error-prone performance, Solskjaer is likely to start the Spaniard in goal with Brandon Williams and Aaron Wan-Bissaka providing cover in either flank.
Marcus Rashford is sure to start upfront despite his rusty performance against Spurs alongside Anthony Martial who was also underwhelming.
Victory at home will see United narrow the gap between them and fourth placed Chelsea to just two points as they push for a top four finish.
Predicted United XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Pogba; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Bernd Leno could be out for up to a year after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury, reports claim.
The Arsenal No.1 was involved in an aerial challenge with Brighton's Neal Maupay during the 2-1 defeat in a Premier League encounter.
German international goalkeeper spent five minutes on the field after being attended to by the medics.
The Arsenal ace screamed out as he landed awkwardly on the pitch and was stretched off in the 40th minute, shouting and furiously pointing at Maupay.
Leno was substituted afterwards and was replaced by the Gunners No.2 Emiliano Martinez who conceded two goals, including from the French forward who went on to score Brighton's match-winner in injury-time.
