Arsene Wenger gives verdict on Alexis Sanchez at Man United

Alexis Sanchez was introduced at the beginning of the second half but was once again unable to impose himself as his struggles in a United shirt continued. Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard pressed high up the pitch in the early 15 minutes, but they lacked the incisiveness on the ball to play a killer ball.

Thomas Tuchel made a surprised choice that was one of the biggest reasons for this win.

United were outclassed by the Ligue 1 leaders in a 2-0 Champions League loss at Old Trafford on Tuesday, recording a single shot on target and conceding to second-half Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe goals.

After receiving treatment from the United physio's, Lingard was replaced by Sanchez in stoppage time and the England global is now a major doubt for the FA Cup fifth round trip to Chelsea.

The Premier League giants will be underdogs going into the game and Atkinson believes that it could work in their favour as they will have no weight of expectations.

United now have a mountain to climb in a heavyweight last-16 encounter, but may need the South American forward to aid their cause during a return date in France with others nursing injuries.

Broncos to trade for Joe Flacco
While the Ravens wanting to move on from Flacco makes quite a bit of sense, the Broncos trading for Flacco is somewhat surprising. The Ravens went 72-40 in Flacco's first seven seasons with the team, but dropped to 24-27 in his final four years as the starter.

Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino is thought to be another under consideration, while Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri and former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane have also been linked.

Solskjaer's side were outplayed by their opponents and it wasn't helped by injuries to Lingard and Martial.

Mourinho, who proclaimed himself the "special one" when he first arrived in the Premier League as Chelsea manager in 2004, was sacked by United before Christmas following a dismal string of results.

While the game itself would be very hard, United are not underdogs and if they progress, there won't be any inquest. Van Gaal didn't last too much longer than Di Maria, as he was axed at the end of the following season, in order to make way for Jose Mourinho.

"Even though we didn't see Mbappe at his absolute best, he was still devastating".

Solskjaer has urged his players to bounce back quickly, and they have the chance to do so when they travel to Chelsea in the FA Cup fifth round on Monday.
