It's been a season full of highs and lows for Manchester United, but under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the club has some new hope. The Norweigan was the surprise choice by the clubs board to replace Jose Mourinho who was sacked back in December, a decision which cost the Red Devils upwards of £20m. Solskjaer is a firm club legend after enjoying a glittering playing career with the Red Devils under Sir Alex Ferguson, but his managerial career hasn't had the same highs so far.
After his move from Molde was confirmed no one really knew what to expect from United but whats followed has been quite incredible. 12 wins from his opening 15 matches and still unbeaten domestically, the Red Devils look like they're back and they're currently in the midst of a vital stage of the season. Their Champions League hopes look diminished after a 2-0 home defeat to PSG but they're firmly involved in the race for the top four along with booking their place in the quarter-finals of The FA Cup - where they travel to Molineux to face Wolves for a trip to Wembley.
The mood around the club is so positive at the moment but Solskjaer has a real job on his hands maintaining that due to his sides current injury crisis. The 46 year-old revealed on Tuesday that United could be without up to 10 players for their trip to Crystal Palace on Wednesday night, with the likes of Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Anthony Martial expected to miss out.
It's a major blow at a key part of the campaign but it also opens up the door for others, with two under-fire players in particular looking to win over the supporters and manager. Romelu Lukaku and more-so Alexis Sanchez have had their fair share of critics since arriving in Manchester but injuries mean they could play a prominent role for United this week. They're both evidently talented players but it just hasn't worked out yet, but this a massive opportunity to step up and win their place in the side.
