Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says forward Alexis Sanchez "needs to find himself" at Manchester United.

The Chilean was brought on just before half-time of United's 2-0 defeat against PSG on Tuesday night in the Champions League last 16 first leg, but was largely ineffective for the hosts.

Solskjaer said after the game that he "can't do anything" about the 30-year-old, inferring that it's up to the player to perform.

"I can't do anything about Alexis Sanchez, when he plays, he needs to find himself, because we know there is a quality player there," Solskjaer said.

Sanchez has started just once in the Premier League for United under Solskjaer, but has made the XI in both FA Cup games against Reading and Arsenal.

He may get more of a chance in the coming weeks after both Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial were taken off with injuries at Old Trafford.

United have some vital fixtures coming up; first they face Chelsea in the FA Cup fifth round on Monday night, before a home clash with Liverpool on Super Sunday.
