Alexis Sanchez winces in pain.

Alexis injury concern after win over Southampton

Saturday 02 March 2019 18:04

Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided an update on Alexis Sanchez's injury.

The Chilean was hurt at the start of the second half, as the Reds won 3-2 in an entertaining clash, following an awkward collision inside the Saints' penalty area.

Clearly frustrated at having to leave the field, after providing some telling passes in the opening period, he made way for substitute Diogo Dalot.

Alexis Sanchez is withdrawn - with Diogo Dalot taking his place.

"We don't know yet," said Ole. "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."

Any ligament damage would surely sideline the 30-year-old. Marcus Rashford played the full 90 minutes to prove his fitness ahead of the Paris Saint-Germain tie in the Champions League in midweek.

Paul Pogba is suspended for the match in his homeland, of course, but there could be a hope Anthony Martial is available to take the spot on the left flank.

The Reds trail 2-0 from the first leg at Old Trafford but confidence remains high in the camp.
