Having scored 12 goals in three games since taking over from former Norwegian striker Ole Gunnar Solskjær, Manchester United will be able to rely on an extra offensive push to return Chilean Alexis Sanchez from injury.
Sanchez is expected to play host to Newcastle on Wednesday in the Premier League.
Sanchez missed six weeks after a thigh muscle rupture, and the last matches of the Red Devils were not overseen by Jose Mourinho, who was sacked on December 18.
Sanchez joined United in the 2018 transfer window from Arsenal, amid media reports that United made him the highest-earning player in the Premier League as part of a deal that saw Armenian midfielder Henrik Mkhitaryan move in the opposite direction.
However, Sanchez did not meet the expectations, and only four goals in 30 games. Solskjaer, however, is counting on a bigger role for his attacker in the coming period, relying on an offensive approach different from Mourinho’s defense reserve.
“He is a player who will benefit from the rotation principle and move on the pitch will be an addition to the team,” said Sanchez.
“I think he is looking forward to that, which is evident in Saturday’s training because he scored some fine goals and that’s encouraging.”
