Manchester United’s FA Cup campaign continues at Huish Park this evening, in a game against League Two Yeovil Town.
The startling line-up has been named and as expected it’s a full debut for Alexis Sanchez, who’ll seemingly start on the left, in behind Marcus Rashford.

Everyone has been waiting patiently to see Old Trafford’s new hero in action, and the time is now. In terms of opposition this presents Sanchez with an excellent opportunity to start his Red Devils career on the right note and it would be simply amazing to see him grab a goal on his full debut.
Aside from the former Arsenal man, it’s a chance for Rashford to rediscover his form, with Michael Carrick also making his first appearance in what feels like forever. The veteran midfielder has been missing due to an ongoing heart issue, but it’s absolutely superb to have him back. It’s also a great moment for Scott McTominay, who continues to earn Mourinho’s trust with some great individual performances this season.
Then we’ve another nod to the future with Angel Gomes named as a substitute alongside back-up goalkeeper Joel Pereira. It’s a youthful line-up, but there is some firepower on the bench should Mourinho need to utilise it.
