Manchester United caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes he can get the best out of misfiring Alexis Sanchez.

The Chile international has scored just four goals since his move to United from Arsenal almost a year ago, but Solskjaer said the attacking philosophy of his re-energised team should suit the 30-year-old.

“I think he’s player that would benefit from the interchanging, the rotation, the movement,” Solskjaer said. “The more chances you create, the more times you get the ball into the final third, he’ll be an asset for us.

“I think he’s looking forward to it. He scored quite a few nice goals [in training on Saturday] so that was encouraging.”

Sanchez has missed the last nine games with a hamstring injury and has not scored for nearly three months.

Solskjaer took the decision to leave him out of the squad for the 4-1 win over Bournemouth but he will be involved against Newcastle at St James’ Park on Wednesday.

The interim coach is also confident Marcus Rashford will be fit after being withdrawn early against Bournemouth because of a groin problem, but Eric Bailly will miss out as he serves the first game of a three-match suspension.

“[Sanchez] had some great training sessions the last few days, he wanted to play [against Bournemouth] but we have to manage him, he’s been out for a month,” Solskjaer said. (ESPN)
