Solskjaer: Alexis Sanchez wants to prove a point at Barcelona

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has tipped Alexis Sanchez to “prove a point” as his team welcome back the Chilean, who previously played for Barcelona, ahead of their Champions League quarter-final second leg clash.

The Red Devils are 1-0 down after the first game at Old Trafford but Solskjaer belives they can win the tie, pointing to his team overcoming a bigger deficit in the last round against PSG.

United will also welcome back Nemanja Matic for the match at Camp Nou.

“Well of course that memory of PSG will help the players,” the Norwegian told a press conference.

“As a team we know that we can turn things around – it is not that long ago and we are one goal better off. [But] Barcelona is a difficult prospect.

“Fitness-wise [Matic and Sanchez] are available.

“Of course, for Alexis who has been here and played here it is a big night. When he is on the pitch he wants to prove a point as well.

“Let’s hope he can end the season great for us.”
