Alexis Sanchez could be in line for a surprise start when Manchester United take on Barcelona in the Nou Camp tonight.

Sanchez was among United’s travelling contingent as they bid to overturn a 1-0 deficit in the return leg of their Champions League quarter-final, and boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted he has a huge role to play.

The Chilean has been sidelined for the last six weeks because of a knee injury but could return to bolster an attack that failed to register a shot on target in last week’s defeat at Old Trafford.

Elsewhere, midfielder Nemanja Matic and full-back Matteo Darmian were also part of the 22-man squad but Ander Herrera and Eric Bailly miss out.

Luke Shaw has travelled with his team-mates despite the full-back being suspended for the Nou Camp clash after being cautioned against the La Liga champions last week.

United will be aiming to come from behind for the second time in a row in Europe’s elite club competition, having seen off Paris St Germain in the last 16 despite trailing by two goals after the first leg.
