Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said he will be hoping his returning star forward Alexis Sanchez will be fit to face Tottenham Hotspur next week in the league.
United are on a five match winning streak and will be given their first test under new boss Ole when they take on high-flying Tottenham in the league.
Speaking after the game, United caretaker boss Solskjaer said about Sanchez: “He was feeling his hamstring, he should’ve told me one minute before, though, because I made two subs. Hopefully he will be OK for next weekend. I think maybe he’s happy that he got through 60 minutes. Hopefully he won’t be too bad.”
“He’s been out a month now, he’s had 20 minutes against Newcastle, half an hour maybe. Now he’s had 60 minutes, so it’s about building up again. You know the quality he has. I think maybe when he gets another few games under his belt, he would have finished a little bit earlier on in the first half. He had one touch too many, could have finished when he was driving through the box, so he’ll be fine.”
Sanchez’s move from Arsenal last year has not played out well so far and he will be hoping for a turnaround under the new boss.
