Manchester United suffered injury injury on Thursday's training and was set to one month out of action
Manchester United star Alexis Sanchez was placed on the spell on the sidelines after he was confirmed to have suffered a baggage injury.
Chile has only started seven games so far this season in a campaign hit by injuries.
Reports suggest that Sanchez could be faced with time between two to four weeks on the sidelines, meaning he would probably miss the next week of conflict against his former side of Arsenal.
Having missed the match in the match for United's wins against Young Boys on Tuesday, Sanchez is expected to be needed again during the upcoming slalom schedule.

Jose Mourinho's party travels to the south coast to come to Southampton on his next game on Saturday before hosting Arsenal and Fulham in three days the following week.
They also need to finish their Champions League group stage with a tie in Valencia next month before they travel to Anfield to take Liverpool.
Mourinho apologized for failing Sanchez during the victory over Young Boys earlier this week, confirming that former Barcelona and Arsenal are not injured.
"No, he is not injured, but he's very curious because you're always talking about those who do not play," said United's boss after the game.
"Today (Tuesday) you had (Marcus) Rashford as 9, that's what you want, what you ask all the time, that's what you've got."
Sanchez has only one goal of his name so far this season, losing his place aside during the early stages of the campaign.

Speculation is that the 29-year-old is unhappy with life in Manchester, who joined Red Devils in January in Arsenal.
Former United fellow forward Anthony Martial would play a role in the lack of Sanchez's ability in the past few weeks, and the French had six goals in the league since the beginning of October.
Overall, Sanchez managed only four goals in 30 appearances for the Red Devils, having 80 points to 166 for the Gunners.
