Marouane Fellaini will not perform for Manchester United at Arsenal
Three players are missing for Manchester United as they prepare for Friday's fourth-round FA Cup draw at Arsenal.
Interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to continue his winning start, which has seen United add seven wins since seven since he replaced fired Jose Mourinho.
This morning he confirmed that Alexis Sanchez would appear at some point against his old club, but said that three other players would not make the trip to London. Sanchez suffered an injury in the FA Cup victory over Reading recently and has not been available in the last two games. This will be the first time that Sanchez returns to the club where he scored 80 goals in 166 appearances since joining United last January.
Speaking with MUTV, Solskjaer said of Sanchez: "He will be involved, I think he will love it if the crowd turns against him." As a player, pride comes into action and you think I'll show you all, he's been fantastic in training, his attitude It has been successful, so I hope you enjoy the game. "
Marouane Fellaini, Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo missed United's 2-1 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion a week ago and all three will be missing again.
Solskjaer said: "Smalling has started training, so I hope he is available maybe next week to make it look good for him." Fellaini and Rojo are still a bit far, but we have a very good and talented team.
"There are players who need to play and have the quality to play. There will definitely be one or two changes. "
Arsenal also has injury problems and will be left without the former US pair, Danny Welbeck and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
