- Manchester United interim manager Ole Gunnar is counting on the duo of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez to further improve the Red Devils play
- Lukaku was granted compassionate leave by Untied and has been absent from matches
- Sanchez is returning to action after picking up a hamstring injury back in November
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes the pair of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez need to look to Paul Pogba as an example and take responsibility for lifting up Manchester United performance.
Lukaku was granted compassionate leave by his club and has been absent from duties while Alexis Sanchez picked up a hamstring injury back in November.
"It's up to them when they get a chance. That's the name of the game as a footballer, you've got to do it yourself," he said.
Solskjaer said he had faith in the two players and they were at the club because they were quality players and all they now had to do was enjoy playing for Manchester United.

"They are here for a reason, they're good players and it's u to them to use their imagination and creativity and just enjoy playing for this club, that's the best time of your life," Solskjaer said.
And their interim manager now wants them to copy Pogba's turnaround, having scored two goals in his last two games.
"The attitude has been perfect and that's key, you should be tired towards the end of every single game. Pogba's been top class and we're looking to build a team around him, of course, but there are so many quality players" he said.
And above scoring goals the World Cup winner is clearly a driving force in shaping the mentality of players around him, tirelessly marshaling United's mid and pushing his team forward.
