Manchester United star Alexis Sanchez is set for a spell on the sidelines after it was confirmed he has suffered a hamstring injury.
The Chilean has started just seven matches so far this season in a campaign that has been plagued by injuries.
Reports suggest Sanchez could face anywhere between two to four weeks on the sidelines, which means he is likely to miss next week’s clash against his former side Arsenal.
Having missed out on a place in the matchday squad for United’s win against Young Boys on Tuesday, Sanchez was expected to be required again during the upcoming festive schedule.
Jose Mourinho’s side are to travel to the south coast to take on Southampton in their next match this Saturday, before they host Arsenal and Fulham in the space of three days next week.
