Manchester United continued their impeccable Premier League form during a stunning game at Old Trafford against Southampton on Saturday.
The Red Devils went into the match with a decimated squad due to injuries galore. Unfortunately, that problem continued as Alexis Sanchez was substituted early in the second 45 after injuring his knee.
After the game, Solskjaer spoke to the press about the situation and conceded that it may well be ligament damage. We know how serious that can be, and hopefully, we get a positive update in the not too distant future.
“We don’t know yet. He got a knock on his knee.” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.
“It might be his ligaments. We’ll do the scan tomorrow. Hopefully, it won’t be too bad but we won’t know until we’ve done the scans.”
If it’s bad, this could be a season-ender. In fact, he could even miss the start of the next campaign depending on the severity but we’ll just have to wait and see.
It’s almost a certainty that he’ll miss United’s game against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night, while a return to The Emirates at the weekend is looking in doubt, too.
Unfortunately, Sanchez just cannot catch an injury break. He’s having a torrid time at Old Trafford which is a massive shame because he’s obviously a brilliant player.
Sometimes, though, situations just don’t work out. Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised to see United call time on Sanchez’s career at the club when the summer rolls around. Perhaps that’s in everyone’s best interests…
