Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that he fears forward Alexis Sanchez could potentially have suffered ligament damage in the Red Devils’ 3-2 victory over Southampton at the weekend.

The Chilean had to be withdrawn at the weekend, being replaced by Diogo Dalot and Solskjaer fears he could be out for some time. Talking after United’s dramatic, last-gasp victory, the Norwegian said: “We don’t know yet. He got a knock on his knee.

“It might be his ligaments. We’ll do the scan tomorrow. Hopefully, it won’t be too bad but we won’t know until we’ve done the scans.

“Of course, we’ll have to wait until then.”

Sanchez’s absence could be a big blow for United as they prepare for their crunch clash with Paris Saint Germain in their UEFA Champions League last-16 second-leg. United head into the game looking to overturn a deficit following their 2-0 defeat to the reigning Ligue 1 champions just under a fortnight ago.

Having said that, Romelu Lukaku has been in fantastic form as of late having bagged four goals in his last two Premier League games. The Belgian is available at a price of 9/1 with Betfair to score the opening goal of the game in France.
