Manchester United's Alexis Sanchez fitness battle to face Tottenham

Manchester United's Alexis Sanchez fitness battle to face Tottenham
Alexis Sanchez faces a race against time to be fit for Manchester United's clash with Tottenham Hotspur next Monday.

Chile international Sanchez missed the 3-2 defeat at Brighton on Sunday after picking up a muscle injury in training on Friday, although sources have told ESPN FC the problem is considered minor.

But with just seven days to prepare for Tottenham's visit to Old Trafford, the 29-year-old -- who will undergo further tests this week -- has a battle to be fit.

It means manager Jose Mourinho faces the prospect of lining up for United's first head-to-head against a top-six opponent without a star man as they look to bounce back from the demoralising result at the Amex Stadium.

Sources have also told ESPN FC that Luke Shaw will be assessed this week after picking up two knocks to his left foot against Brighton.
