‘Big game player,’ Manchester United fans delighted with attacker’s performance vs Spurs

Manchester United supporters were pleased with the showing of Alexis Sanchez during Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham Hotspur at the Wembley Stadium.

The Chile international was benched for the previous outing at Bournemouth with Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford getting their opportunities and this led to suggestions that he could miss the semi-final.

However, Jose Mourinho maintained his faith in the attacker with a starting role against Spurs and the attacker did not disappoint as he scored United’s opener in an enthusiastic display.

Sanchez has struggled to put in a consistent run of performances in the United shirt but Saturday’s showing gave an indication that the Chilean is close to reaching his peak form.

Sanchez’s selection produced plenty of question marks ahead of the game but Mourinho could undoubtedly be delighted that the winger was able to produce a such a performance in a season-defining game for United.

The Portuguese tactician has previously suggested it may take time for Sanchez to play to the best of his abilities and the fans may get to witness his true-self after his first full pre-season with the side.
