Solskjaer also revealed Alexis Sanchez would not be ready to feature this weekend, despite training well after sustaining an injury with Chile at the Copa America this summer.

"Alexis has come in and trained well." he said via Manchester United's official website.

"Of course, he's four or five weeks behind the boys and he's not played apart from a one behind-closed-doors [friendly] here, so I think he'll see this as an opportunity, as well, to make his mark."
