The Red Devils have been without Sanchez for some time due to injury, while Rashford had also looked doubtful for the trip to St James’ Park.

However, the Manchester Evening News now report that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confident the England international should make the trip, while Sanchez is also set for a return to the first-team.

United have made a great start under Solskjaer, playing some fine football and winning all three of the Norwegian’s first three matches in charge.

Fans will no doubt be intrigued to see if their former striker can continue to work his magic by getting Sanchez back to his best.

The Chile international has so far been a major flop for MUFC since his move from Arsenal nearly a year ago.

Jose Mourinho failed to get the best out of a number of players in his time in charge at Old Trafford, but there has already been a major improvement from Paul Pogba in particular since his departure.

Solskjaer will now hope he can get Sanchez’s game up a level once he comes back.
