Romelu Lukaku has scored four goals in his last two matches and will be right up for this so both teams to score looks a decent shout here at 3/4. "We have done it so many times before".
Meanwhile, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to give update on the Chilean's fitness level.
"The manner of it was like the old days", he said.
"It's awesome. You feel a lot of emotions and I'm very happy and hopefully there will be many more to come".
"So pleased for the boys that they managed to claw three points out of this game". We have to do it away from home, but we have eight straight wins away from home.
"We don't know yet", said Solskjaer about Sanchez's injury, as reported by Manchester Evening News.
The champions were in control for long spells of the match but had to wait until the 55th minute for their only goal as Riyad Mahrez came off the bench to earn City a crucial and hard-fought three points in the Premier League title race.
It's special because we came along together and we all know each other well.
"He's got high energy quality in his passing, crossing and shooting, so pleased for him, a goal and an assist, it's a nice day for him to remember".
The United forward was hurt in a challenge early in the second half and was seen limping out of Old Trafford seemingly wearing strapping on his right leg.
Juan Mata is also doubtful for the last 16 second leg tie while Jesse Lingard remains sidelined through injury. "I don't want to speak about [that] for obvious reasons", he said.
With Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba having one of the biggest player/manager fallouts in recent times at Manchester United, did the Portuguese tactician finally address the bad blood between them on the weekend?
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Manchester United's belief is comparable to the celebrated side he starred for in 1999 as they prepare to tackle a tall task against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.
In a game of spectacular goals, Saints midfielder James Ward-Prowse struck a superb 25-yard free-kick, awarded for an Ashley Young foul on Armstrong, into the top left-hand corner of De Gea's goal after 74 minutes to make the score 2-2.
"I think they're running down the clock with Sanchez".
"In the second half the goal was offside". Unless Bournemouth can produce a shock result, top spot will be City's again come kickoff in the Merseyside derby - how Liverpool handle the pressure in that one could well determine where the title ends up come the end of May.
"When we changed to two up front that helped him as well".
