Solskjaer Injury Update On Five Players

Alexis Sanchez, sidelined with a knee injury for over a month, could also be held back to save him for the second leg against Barca on Tuesday.

Ashley Young and Luke Shaw are suspended for the West Ham game thus Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could start Marcos Rojo for the first time.

Matteo Darmian is also available after spending nearly three months out injured.

“We've got a couple of other full-backs out for a while,” Solskjaer said.

“Antonio… Matteo Darmian will be available, Rojo's available and we might just have to look at other options as well if something happens to those.

“Herrera's still out, won't be available, I doubt Nemanja is available because of his illness. Maybe, because he's a warrior and he really wants to join in and help his teammates. Let's see after today because he trained individually yesterday.

“Alexis is training with us, he's trained twice. He'll train today. I'm not sure if he's gonna be available, he's injury-free, but not sure 100 per cent ready for tomorrow. Maybe more likely for the Barcelona game. Let's see.”
