Alexis Sanchez suffers suspected ligament damage in Manchester United win

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he fears Alexis Sanchez has suffered ligament damage in his knee after he was forced to substitute the forward in Manchester United’s win over Southampton on Saturday.

Sanchez went down following a collision in the Saints’ penalty area, and was forced off shortly afterwards, with Diogo Dalot replacing him.

“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,”¬†Solskjaer said.

Sanchez’s injury could force him to miss two of United’s biggest games of the season.

They face Paris Saint-German on Wednesday in Paris where they attempt to come from two goals down.

United then travel to the Emirates Stadium to play top-four rivals – and Sanchez’s former side – Arsenal on Sunday.
