Manchester United will be missing one of their key attacking stars in the upcoming clash against Bournemouth.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have even more incentive to win after both Arsenal and Tottenham dropped points this weekend.
A win for United could close the gap to the top four after it previously looked out of reach before the Norwegian’s arrival.
Under Jose Mourinho the team would often not capitalise under such opportunities and it’s costed them so far this season.
Fans will be hoping things will be different under Solskjaer and the players have the perfect opportunity to prove it is against Bournemouth.

Ole had previously mentioned how Anthony Martial, Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez were in contention for the game.
However, it appears as though the Chilean may not feature after all and could still need more time to recover from his injury.
On the other hand, players have previously failed to report to the team hotel before featuring in matches nonetheless.
The majority of fans are willing to give Sanchez another chance to prove his worth in the hopes that Solskjaer’s football can bring the best out of him.
If the winger doesn’t improve his form, his time at Old Trafford could truly be up by the summer.
