Manchester United’s Alexis Sanchez ruled out for four to six weeks
Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez will be out for “four to six weeks” with a knee injury, says interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Chile striker, 30, was substituted after 52 minutes in United’s 3-2 win over Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday.
It had been suggested by Chile’s medical team that Sanchez would be sidelined for up to two months.
It might not be deliberate but there seems to be something overly cautious about Liverpool’s play in away games at the moment, and it is starting to become a concern.
I am not just talking about Sunday’s 0-0 draw at Everton, because it has been the case for the past few weeks that Jurgen Klopp’s side have not been as dangerous as I have expected on the road.
It was the same at Manchester United last week, and at West Ham earlier in February too.
Maybe it is the pressure of being in a title race but Liverpool dropped points in all of those games, scoring only one goal in total, and on each occasion there were times when Klopp could and should have been bolder.
“It’s a bad knee injury. Hopefully he will recover quickly,” said Solskjaer.
Manchester United visit Paris St-Germain in the Champions League’s last 16 on Wednesday, trailing 2-0 from the first leg at Old Trafford.
Federer’s first title came on 4 February 2001, when he beat Julien Boutter to win the Milan Indoors as a 19-year-old.
The match report on the BBC Sport website described Federer as “one of the up-and-coming stars on the men’s tennis scene”, and the Swiss spoke of his “high but not impossible” aim of breaking into the world’s top 15.
The 99 titles he has won since have come at another 30 events and on four continents.
His most successful tournaments are his hometown event in Basel and the grass-court event in Halle, Germany, both of which he has won nine times.
Wimbledon is his most successful Grand Slam with eight titles. He has won the Australian Open six times, the US Open five times and the French Open once.
Fifty of Federer’s titles have come in Europe, 24 in North America, 18 in Asia and eight in Australia.
