Manchester United have been handed a big boost ahead of their FA Cup final showdown with Chelsea FC this month after Alexis Sanchez resumed light training, according to reports in the British media.

Metro is reporting that Sanchez is expected to be fit for both Manchester United’s final Premier League game of the season against Watford, and also the FA Cup final clash with Chelsea FC at Wembley later this month.

The Chile international missed Manchester United’s 1-0 loss to Brighton on Friday night after picking up a knock before the game, but it is claimed that the forward is already looking sharp on the road to recovery.

The same report says that Sanchez is “unlikely” to be risked against West Ham United on Thursday night, but he has been taking part in light training outdoors at Carrington in recent days.

Sanchez has been settling into life at Manchester United following his transfer to Old Trafford from Arsenal in the January window.

The 29-year-old has scored two goals and made three assists in the Premier League for Jose Mourinho’s men since his switch to the Red Devils from their Premier League rivals.

He had scored seven goals for Arsenal in the Premier League this season before his move.
