ALEXIS SANCHEZ could be set to miss Manchester United’s hectic Christmas schedule with a hamstring injury.
The forward suffered the setback in a session yesterday morning — having been left out of Tuesday’s 1-0 Champions League win over Young Boys.
But an Old Trafford source says manager Jose Mourinho has no problem with the out-of-sorts Chilean.
Sanchez, 29, missed the Euro tie after feeling a niggle against Crystal Palace on Saturday, which he initially picked up on international duty.
The United source said: “Alexis didn’t feel very well in the minutes he played against Crystal Palace.
“That was the reason why he was not selected for the Champions League match.
“It certainly isn’t true there are any disciplinary problems with him.”
Sanchez’s injury is another setback for the hitman who has endured a torrid time since joining United from Arsenal in January.

He has scored just four goals in 30 appearances and the injury could see him drop even further down Mourinho’s pecking order.
And now he could be ruled out for the visit of his former side to Old Trafford next week and the trip to Anfield on December 16.

Sanchez wants out… but where will he go?
ALEXIS SANCHEZ is reportedly determined to quit Manchester United.
He has been left spitting feathers after being left out of the Champions League win over Young Boys.
Sanchez is United’s top earner on a staggering £500,000-a-week deal.
And Mourinho has been left disappointed by a number of poor performances this season, prompting him to pull the trigger for Tuesday’s crunch European clash.
