Ole Gunnar Solskjaer issues Manchester United injury update – as one star faces late fitness test

Manchester United travel to Molineux on Saturday evening to face Wolves in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

Ahead of the game, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that Romelu Lukaku is an injury doubt for Manchester United’s trip.

On Lukaku’s fitness, Solskjaer said: “He’s had a sore foot this week and he’s being assessed, so hopefully he’ll get through [Friday].”

There was better news on Jesse Lingard, who has not played since February 24.

Solskjaer added: “Phil Jones is back, there have been so many players out, Anthony [Martial] is back, Ander [Herrera] has been training, Jesse [Lingard] has been training and we’ve got a decision to make tomorrow on who’s match fit.”

Alexis Sanchez, meanwhile, remains a long-term absentee.

“He’s [Sanchez] coming back on Sunday, he’s not been on grass yet,” the Norwegian said.

“He’s been seeing his people in Barcelona, but he’s a few weeks away yet.”

Asked whether he believes Sanchez can rediscover his best form at United, Solskjaer added: “I hope so. You can never be 100 per cent sure but Alexis is such a determined lad, he loves football and is doing everything he can to get back and show his best side.”
