Solskjaer: Sanchez will be an asset

Sanchez, 30, has scored just four goals since his move to United from Arsenal in January last year.

However, Solskjaer believes the attacking philosophy of his re-energised team should suit the Chile international superstar.

"I think he's player that would benefit from the interchanging, the rotation, the movement," Solskjaer said, as per Sky Sports.

"The more chances you create, the more times you get the ball into the final third, he'll be an asset for us.

"I think he's looking forward to it. He scored quite a few nice goals [in training on Saturday] so that was encouraging."

United will face up against Newcastle tonight and the 30-year-old is likely to return to first-team action at St James' Park.
