Rom [elu Lukaku] has a sore foot so he will be assessed this morning [Friday] so let's see if he can join in. "Anthony [Martial] is back, Ander [Herrera] has been training, Jesse [Lingard] has been training and we've got a decision to make tomorrow on who's match fit".

"Phil Jones is back", Solskjaer said.

Solskjaer also provided an update on Alexis Sanchez and revealed the attacker is due to return from Barcelona on Sunday where he's been undergoing treatment for a knee injury that he picked up against Southampton earlier this month. "He's been seeing his people in Barcelona".

"You've got to ask him", said Ole, when pushed on whether he thinks the former England star will venture into management again.
