On Romelu Lukaku, the caretaker boss says he faces test ahead of the quarterfinal clash while revealing Alexis Sanchez will miss the clash with a knee injury. Despite admitting a number of United players are still out, Solskjaer says Phil Jones will be available while Anthony Martial, Ander Herrera and Jesse Lingard have all been training.
“He’s had a sore foot this week, he’s being assessed. Hopefully, he’ll get through today. Phil Jones is back. There are so many players out. Anthony [Martial] has been training well this week. [Ander] Herrera's been training, Jesse [Lingard] training. Obviously, we’ve got a decision to make as to who is match-fit," he said.
“He’s coming back [to England] on Sunday. He’s not been on grass yet, he’s been seeing his people in Barcelona. He’s still a few weeks away. If we get to Everton, Manchester City, Chelsea – that period – he probably will be available."
“You can never be 100 per cent sure but Alexis is such a determined lad, he loves football, so I’m sure he’s doing everything he can that when he comes back he’s going to show his best side.”
