Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez could be out for a while according to the Red Devils’ interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Alexis Sanchez started the last league game at home with struggling Southampton before he was substituted after suffering a knock under the challenge from Saints defender Jan Bednarek.

The Chilean international left the pitch with the suspected knee problem after 52 minutes and he was swiftly replaced by young Portuguese fullback Diogo Dalot.

In his post-match press conference after the game, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed that Alexis Sanchez could have suffered a knee ligament injury against the Saints.

Solskjaer has had to deal with several injury problems in the past few weeks and Alexis Sanchez could compound his woes ahead of a difficult run of games.

Several first-team players including Anthony Martial, Juan Manuel Mata, Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic and Jesse Lingard all missed the Premier League clash with Southampton.

Manchester United had to come from behind to beat Southampton 3-2 with Romelu Lukaku getting two goals for the Red Devils.

The Belgian international has now scored four goals in his last two games in the Premier League.

The win was enough to take Manchester United back to the top four places on the Premier League table at the expense of the Gunners.
