Solskjaer provides injury updates on Lukaku, Martial, Sanchez and Herrera
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.”
