Over the weekend, Manchester United put in a brilliant second-half display to overcome an excellently organised Chelsea team, managed by Antonio Conte.
The Red Devils grew into the match, with Romelu Lukaku grabbing an equaliser, before the Belgian turned provider, setting up Jesse Lingard for the winner.
Winning this game was absolutely vital as it much United back into second-place in the Premier League table while sending out a message to their top-four rivals.
However, one player in particular copped some stick from Sky Sports’ Graeme Souness after the game. The former Liverpool man had it in for Alexis Sanchez, who put in an average display on Super Sunday.
“His career hasn’t got going at United yet,” Souness told Sky Sports.
“Every time I watch him, I think ‘where are you’ – when he was at Arsenal he was being the difference.
“Today he was absent, I can’t think of a single thing he did in the game.”
Honestly, I don’t think you can disagree with Souness, but that doesn’t mean it won’t work out for him here. Don’t forget that Manchester United play a completely different brand of football to Arsenal and it was always going to take him some time to adapt.
My personal view is that Sanchez is trying too hard to impress, similar to how Paul Pogba was last term. He’ll settle down, though, and eventually, the world-class displays will come from him. You’ll never keep a good player down and once the confidence starts flowing, he’ll start banging in the goals and playing like we know he can.
