Man Utd lose striker Alexis for remainder of year

Manchester United striker Alexis Sanchez could be missing for six games due to a hamstring injury.

Sanchez flew into Santiago earlier this week and is having treatment with members of the Chile national team's medical staff, says Sky Sports.

The United forward injured himself in training last Thursday and faces a fairly lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Sanchez has missed games against Southampton and Arsenal, and if he is expected to miss the rest of 2018, he won't feature in at least the next six of United's matches.

He has only completed a full 90 minutes for the club once this season in the league, in their opening game against Leicester.
