Alexis Sanchez is still injured although now his recovery process relocates to Carrington with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still believing in the 30-year-old.
Ole said of Alexis at his press conference: ''He's coming back on Sunday, he's not been on grass yet. He's been seeing his people in Barcelona, but he's a few weeks away yet.''

For all the rumours of Sanchez leaving, Solskjaer might still want to give the Chilean his chance to translate his determination into performances.
Ole added: ''Yeah I hope so (Sanchez can do it). You can never be 100 per cent sure but Alexis is such a determined lad, he loves football and is doing everything he can to get back and show his best side.
