Alexis Sanchez downturn due to loss of hunger, says Paul Merson

Alexis Sanchez downturn due to loss of hunger, says Paul Merson

The Norwegian pulled no punches when he said "I can't do anything about Alexis Sanchez" immediately after a 2-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in midweek following yet another anonymous display from the Chilean.

Solskjaer said: "I think he's a very good player, he's very talented but of course there are only so many things you can sit down and talk about and tweak". That's what it's about when you go through periods when you don't perform up to your standard because we know there is a very, very good player there.

Solskjaer won the FA Cup as a player with United in 1999 and 2004.

Sanchez also fell out of favour with Mourinho prior to the Portuguese's sacking as manager in December and, while describing him as one of the best coaches in the world, the player has said that life became hard during the final months of his reign.

Speaking on Sky Sports News on Saturday, Merson said: "I hope we see the old Sanchez, but I don't see the confidence or the hunger in his eyes anymore".

"If he could just get that goal, I am sure that would release some of his confidence", Solskjaer told reporters ahead of Monday's FA Cup trip to Chelsea.

China calls for peaceful dialogue on Venezuela crisis
German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas also said Germany had earmarked €5 million ($5.72 million) worth of assistance for Venezuela. Roughly 40 countries around the world have backed Guaido, who swore himself in as president in January.

"It's one of those things".

"You're in, you're out, and I'm used to playing". "But within the group, there was that feeling that you were in the team, then out. I'm sure he'll be fine".

"We had a quick breakaway and the linesman was coming from here and, suddenly, I looked up and 'bang!' And I went: 'Ouch!'" There are quite a few heads there [where] their pride has been hurt.

United are fourth in the Premier League, 14 points behind leaders Manchester City, and face PSG in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on 6 March.

Solskjaer is looking for a similar impact against Chelsea if Lukaku is handed another chance to impress.
