Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hopeful Alexis Sanchez will be fit enough to feature against Spurs next weekend in the Premier League.
The Chilean attacker started today’s 2-0 win over Reading in the FA Cup, but suffered a recurrence of the hamstring injury that has kept him out of action in recent weeks.
“Hopefully he will be OK for next weekend. I think maybe he’s happy that he got through 60 minutes. Hopefully he won’t be too bad,” Solskjaer told the press after today’s game.
“He’s been out a month now, he’s had 20 minutes against Newcastle, half an hour maybe. Now he’s had 60 minutes, so it’s about building up again.
“You know the quality he has. I think maybe when he gets another few games under his belt, he would have finished a little bit earlier on in the first half.
“He had one touch too many, could have finished when he was driving through the box, so he’ll be fine.”
