Solskjaer gives damage replace on six Man Utd gamers

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given an update on six Manchester United players ahead of their FA Cup clash with Wolves at the weekend, including Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez.

Lukaku has been suffering from a “sore foot” in the build-up to the match at Molineux on Saturday evening with United now competing on three front as they move into the Champions League quarter-finals and battle for a top-four finish in the Premier League.

“He’s had a sore foot this week, he’s being assessed,” Solskjaer told reporters when asked about Lukaku.

“Hopefully he’ll get through today. Phil Jones is back. There are so many players out.

“Anthony [Martial] has been training well this week. [Ander] Herrera’s been training, Jesse [Lingard] training.

“Obviously we’ve got a decision to make as to who is match-fit.”

Sanchez was withdrawn early in the second half during United’s 3-2 win over Southampton and rumours at the time expected him to be out for up to two months.

And Solskjaer confirmed he will be probably be missing until at least the Everton match near the end of April, he said: “He’s coming back [to England] on Sunday. He’s not been on grass yet, he’s been seeing his people in Barcelona.

“He’s still a few weeks away. If we get to Everton, Manchester City, Chelsea – that period – he probably will be available.

“You can never be 100 per cent sure but Alexis is such a determined lad, he loves football, so I’m sure he’s doing everything he can that when he comes back he’s going to show his best side.”
