Timely return for Sanchez

Alexis Sanchez has been included in Manchester United's squad for Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final second leg at Barcelona.

The Chile international has been sidelined for the last six weeks because of a knee injury.

Matteo Darmian and Nemanja Matic have also been named in the 22-man squad as United attempt to reach the semi-finals of the competition despite losing 1-0 in the first leg at Old Trafford.

Luke Shaw is suspended for the second leg after picking up a yellow card in last week's game against the La Liga leaders.

Meanwhile, Marcus Rashford believes United can cause a major shock by winning at the Nou Camp.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men managed to beat Paris Saint-Germain in the last round despite losing the first leg on home soil 2-0.

An upbeat Rashford said: "We understand as a team that we have to go into the second leg with a positive mind-set and get the job done.

"I think we have to do things more as a team. When they have the ball we have to press, and everyone has to press. When we have the ball and we're attacking then everyone has to be up, so if we lose the ball we can win it back quickly.

"We'll always take confidence from winning in Paris but we also understand that it's not PSG, it's a different match, a different atmosphere, it's a completely different ball game. We go there confident but if we're going to win it's probably going to be different to how we did it in Paris."

United are 9/1 to qualify for the semi-finals and 40/1 to beat Barcelona 2-0 on Tuesday. Meanwhile, they can be backed at 2/1 to finish in the top four of the Premier League this season.

Solskjaer confirms Sanchez blow

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Alexis Sanchez is unlikely to play for Manchester United again until mid-April.

The Chile international picked up an injury during Saturday's 3-2 Premier League win over Southampton.

"Yeah, it looks like he [Alexis] might be out for a bit," said United's caretaker boss Solskjaer. "It was a bad knee injury, [so he could be out for] four weeks or six weeks. Hopefully he'll recover quickly."

Meanwhile, Solskjaer has indicated that he will name a youthful side for Wednesday's Champions League round of 16 second-leg encounter with Paris Saint-Germain.

The French side won last month's first match at Old Trafford 2-0 and United can be backed at 18/1 to qualify for the last eight.

Tahith Chong, James Garner, Angel Gomes, Mason Greenwood and Brandon Williams are all in the squad that has travelled to the French capital for the second leg.

"It's just one of those situations that you come into that we've lost a few players," added Solskjaer.

"We'll have a good team out there. Alexis was the only one that we struggled to get fit for now. Brandon is a full-back who can play both sides. He's quick and this is the first time he has travelled with us.

"He didn't expect to come but that's part of being here that suddenly you're called upon. That's why you're in the Academy, that we believe in you and suddenly you have to step up. That's why we have good coaches for them, to make them ready."

Solskjaer has also announced that he is no longer contracted to Molde. The intention when the Norwegian was appointed caretaker boss at Old Trafford in December following Jose Mourinho's departure was that he would return to his role at Molde in May.

The 46-year-old said: "I'm not sure how it works. I think the contract is expired and that I'm now under contract with Manchester United. I think we need a new contract there (at Molde)."

United, 11/10 to finish in the top four of the Premier League this season, are 8/1 to draw 1-1 with PSG on Wednesday.

Sanchez desperate to impress

Chile striker Alexis Sanchez remains determined to prove his worth at Manchester United, having struggled to make an impact since joining from Arsenal.

The 30-year-old moved to Old Trafford just over a year ago, since when he has scored five goals in 37 appearances in all competitions.

And the former Barcelona ace is eager to improve on that return and show the Red Devils just what he is capable of, starting against Chelsea in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Monday evening.

Sanchez told BBC Sport: "I'm a player that, if I'm not in contact with the ball, I lose that spark and sometimes I want to play in every game. You're in, you're out and I'm used to playing.

"It's not an excuse, because if I go on for 10, 20 minutes, I have to perform because that's what I'm here for, to make a difference.

"I would like to have brought more joy to the club. Yes it worries me, because I believe in my abilities as a player, I want to show it.

"I think I'm an experienced player and I think I know what I need to do and what I shouldn't do."

The game on Monday evening at Stamford Bridge is a repeat of the FA Cup final last season, which the Blues won 1-0 thanks to an Eden Hazard penalty.

Chelsea are 8/15 to reach the sixth round of the FA Cup, with United priced at 11/8, while the men from Manchester are 8/1 to go all the way and lift the trophy this season.
