Manchester United fans react to Alexis Sanchez’s Red Devils league debut

Well, I think it’s fair to say that we all wanted to see a happy Alexis Sanchez following his first Manchester United Premier League game, but unfortunately, that’s not the case.

Jose Mourinho’s men were well beaten away at Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday night, with Sanchez starting and struggling to get involved.

From the get-go, the Red Devils just couldn’t get a foothold in the game, and at times I felt the Chile star was probably trying too hard.

More often than not the former Arsenal man was trying to pull off the difficult pass rather than taking the easy option, and in the one-on-one situation, he was dispossessed far too easily.

Of course, going away to Tottenham and picking up points is never easy, and let’s not forget that this is the first time he’s played alongside Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard. He’s a top player and I’ve no doubt things will improve, but it was a real shame to see such a poor all-round team performance in his first game.

As you’d imagine, the United fans on social media sounded flat about Sanchez and the game as a whole. Check out the best tweets from the match below.
