Man Utd Coach Solskjaer Slams Alexis Sanchez After PSG Performance

Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said he will struggle revive forward Alexis Sanchez' career after another poor performance against PSG.

Sanchez has struggled to find his best form since a move from Arsenal last January and has played a little under the new manager.

After scoring and providing an assist over the weekend, in form forward Anthony Martial kept his place in Solskjaer's Starting XI but he sustained a muscle injury in the first half, which gave Sanchez the opportunity to prove himself.

However, The 30-year-old failed to adapt to the pace of the game, regularly lost possession and didn't create anything in the final third.

"I can't do anything about Alexis Sanchez," Solskjaer said.

"When he plays he needs to find himself because we know there's a quality player there."

Solskjaer admitted PSG's victory provided a 'reality check' for United, who had not lost since Jose Mourinho's last match in charge at Liverpool on December 16.

"Maybe you can say that," Solskjaer added.

"Because that's the level we want to get to. We've been talking about top four, it's one thing but we want to be at the top and Man United should be at the top.

"And this is a top, top team we played against. Our players today, disappointed, of course, but I also think they know we need to step up our level to get to the level we want to get to.

"First-half, I thought they didn't cause us too many problems, but we didn't cause them too many problems, either. There were a couple of times down our right hand side runs into the box, get into six yard box to score a tap-in like Mbappe did with his goal.

"Then again I thought they defended really well against us, we had lots of crosses in the second-half but they were a level above us today, we have to be honest but it's going to be difficult."
