Alexis Sanchez.

When could Alexis return from injury?

Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes Alexis Sanchez could be back from his knee injury for the season run-in.

The Chilean was hoping to show his best form when suffering a jarring challenge during the 3-2 win over Southampton at Old Trafford. Leaving the field in some pain, it was clear the forward would require some time on the sidelines again, continuing his wretched luck with injuries this term.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has delivered an injury update ahead of Saturday's Emirates FA Cup quarter-final at Molineux.

Alexis has been away in Barcelona as he steps up his rehabilitation but there is every chance he will be available again before the campaign ends.

“He's coming back on Sunday,” Ole declared at his press conference, ahead of the Emirates FA Cup quarter-final tie at Wolves. “He's not been on grass yet, so he's been seeing his people in Barcelona.

”So he's still a few weeks away, yeah, but if we get to around Everton, [Manchester] City, Chelsea, that period, he'll probably be available. Hopefully [that is the case].

Obviously, Alexis won't be involved in international action during the upcoming domestic break - with Chile up against Mexico and USA in friendlies.

When asked if United will see the best of the 30-year-old, Solskjaer replied: “I hope so. You can never be 100 per cent sure of course, but Alexis is such a determined lad and he loves football.

”So I'm sure he's doing everything he can when he comes back, to show his best side.
