Sanchez Shines In Debut As United See Off Yeovil
Manchester United’s new signing, Alexis Sanchez looked sharp on his debut as he played a hand in two goals of a comfortable 4-0 FA Cup fourth-round victory at League Two strugglers Yeovil Town.
Sanchez was named in the starting line-up just days after he signed for United from Arsenal and he delivered a man-of-the-match performance as he was involved in the build-up to the first two goals, scored by Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera.
Yeovil Town had started brightly as Jordan Green‘s early effort was saved by Sergio Romero, who came in as one of 10 United changes but the lowest-ranked side left in this season’s FA Cup rarely looked likely to produce one of the competitions greatest ever shocks.
Jesse Lingard slotted in a third before Romelu Lukaku volleyed a fourth in stoppage time for the visitors, for whom victory came on manager Jose Mourinho’s 55th birthday and in his 100th match in charge of the Premier League side.
Jose Mourinho who signed a new contract to 2020 with the Old Trafford club on Thursday has now won 62 of his first 100 games.
