Manchester United interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes the absence of Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard will create opportunity for others in his squad.

Solskjaer confirmed on Friday that the attacking duo, who were both injured during United’s 2-0 Champions League defeat to Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday, will be out for up to three weeks.

Although Alexis Sanchez has disappointed since arriving at Old Trafford from Arsenal last January he can expect to have
a run in the team now, while Romelu Lukaku, Tahith Chong and Angel Gomes are also options for the FA Cup fifth-round trip to Chelsea on Monday night.

Solskjaer said: “[It’s a] chance for anyone who plays – Alexis, Romelu, Chongy or Angel. Anthony and Jesse have done really well for us.

“They’re vital but then again with Rom and Alexis, they’ve got different skill sets and will be able to show what they can do.

“So we just need to gel a team together for Monday.”

Solskjaer said: “He [Greenwood] is injured unfortunately, out for a couple of weeks as well.

“Sometimes that’s how the luck goes, but Mason will get his chance.”
