Ole Gunnar Solskjaer suffered his first Premier League defeat as Manchester United boss on Sunday.

However, the Red Devils still left the Emirates with their heads held high despite a 2-0 loss to top-four rivals Arsenal.

United created the better chances on the day and should have left north London with at least a point - it could have been all three in truth.

While it is certainly a setback, the job Solskjaer has done during his 18-game stint with the Red Devils has been quite remarkable.

Brilliant wins over Chelsea, Tottenham and Paris Saint-Germain have gone in tandem with an upturn in player performance.

Pretty much every member of the United squad has made a serious improvement since Solskjaer's arrival. All except one; Alexis Sanchez.

The Chilean was a ghost under Jose Mourinho and has continued in the same vein under the Norwegian.

His enormous contract doesn't exactly help his cause and Solskjaer - who is certain to land the manager job permanently - has made it clear that Sanchez is not in his plans.

And according to The Sun, United are now prepared to let him leave on loan, as they know most clubs will be put off a permanent deal by his wages.

The Red Devils would likely have to subsidise his wages to let him leave the club.

United can still hold out hope that a club from the Chinese Super League will take a huge risk on a 30-year-old player woefully out of form.

After United's 2-0 first-leg loss to PSG, Solskjaer said about Sanchez: “I can't do anything about Alexis Sanchez. When he plays he needs to finds himself because we know there's a quality player there.”

The Chilean has managed just one goal in 17 Premier League appearances in 2018/19 and is currently sidelined with injury.

It was a move that some had doubts about at that time and it will now probably go down as one of the worst pieces of business in Premier League history.
