Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expected to nail Man Utd star to the bench against Liverpool

    With less than 48 hours left before the blockbuster clash between Manchester United and Liverpool, the media in England have already started speculating over the potential line-ups

    Although Ander Herrera, Paul Pogba, and Nemanja Matic have their place in the starting eleven cemented for the big showdown, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is yet to determine how to put things together in attack.

    Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard are both expected to be available for Sunday’s encounter at Old Trafford, but they have been dealing with injuries following United’s Champions League meeting with Paris Saint-Germain.

    Despite the fact they may not be 100% fit, the Norwegian boss doesn’t even consider fielding Alexis Sanchez from the first minute, according to The Sun.

    After a frustrating period under Jose Mourinho, the Chilean’s problems to rediscover his old form continues under Solskjaer.

    Although the Premier League highest-paid player made a couple of starts soon after Solskjaer’s arrival, he has been nailed to the bench in Manchester United’s last three outings across all competitions.

    In two of his last competitive appearances, the former Barcelona man has done nothing to impress United’s interim manager and repay the club for investing so much in him.

    A fairytale that turned into a nightmare won’t end anytime soon, considering the Red Devils will hardly find suitors crazy enough to match a £505,000-a-week wage they’ve put the 30-year-old on.
