Alexis Sanchez is ready to return for Manchester United, but Marouane Fellaini has been ruled out with what caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer described as a “long-term” calf injury.
Chilean forward Sanchez missed the 1-0 Premier League win over Tottenham Hotspur last weekend with a hamstring problem, but returned to training this week ahead of Saturday’s clash against Brighton & Hove Albion at Old Trafford.
“Alexis has trained all week, so hopefully he will come through the session today and be available,” Solskjaer told a news conference on Friday.
“Fellaini is the long-term one. He will be at least three or four weeks.”
British media reported United are willing to let Fellaini leave for the right price in the January transfer window, despite the 31-year-old signing a new two-year deal at the start of the season.
