‘Just getting better and better’, Man United fans hail attacker’s performance vs Man City

Manchester United supporters were elated with the performance of Alexis Sanchez during Saturday’s cross-town derby against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

United produced a rather forgettable showing in the first-half where they found themselves 2-0 down – with the prospect of witnessing City celebrate their Premier League title.

However, Jose Mourinho’s men put in a strong display following the break with three goals, and Sanchez played an instrumental role in each of those to script the comeback.

The Chilean’s ball for Ander Herrera was perfectly cushioned into the path of Pogba for the opener, and just a minute later, Sanchez made another excellent run before lobbing the ball for the Frenchman to score his brace.

United’s comeback resulted from a powerful header from Chris Smalling, but prior to that, Sanchez put in the perfect delivery from a free-kick for the Englishman to pounce.

Sanchez looked all at sea during the first period versus City, but the second period exemplified the performances we have been used to witnessing with his former employers.

United’s second spot appears more or less secure after the City triumph, and the fans will hope that Sanchez can continue his recent purple patch to guide the club to FA Cup glory.
