Has United made a mistake by signing Alexis Sanchez?

Has United made a mistake by signing Alexis Sanchez?

The reason Alexis Sanchez has failed to catch fire since joining Manchester United could be because of Paul Pogba, reckons Danny Higginbotham.

Sanchez has scored just once in nine appearances since arriving from Arsenal in January, and he will be back when United take on Sevilla for a place in the Champions League last eight. It felt like a matter of time before Seville would go and score'.

Mourinho insists it may be a while until the 29-year-old hits top form at Old Trafford.

It has become a bit of a joke to laugh at Arsenal because they made the noise "finally we got rid of Alexis Sanchez" It's been under-reported just how badly the whole Arsenal dressing room hated Alexis Sanchez. The Red Devils have already got attacking players in abundance.

"Sanchez looks like a shadow of his former self".

"It was very hard watching that, it was hard watching the first game".

The Red Devils are now second in the Premier League table. The game saw both Pogba and Sanchez have minimal impact on United's breath-taking comeback which was inspired by a pinpoint opener from Chris Smalling, followed by an equaliser from in-form Romelu Lukaku and a stunning victor from Nemanja Matic to seal the deal. However, played in the right position, the former Valencia star can be a highly productive player for any team.

'They've got the best keeper in [David de Gea] the world and now he looks frustrated because he is getting isolated. I suppose one trophy is better than nothing if they can go all the way. When he was at Arsenal, he was a player that everyone looked to for inspiration.

Manchester United are now preparing for their FA Cup quarter-final clash against Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday afternoon as they bid to reach the semi-finals. His signing was supposed to improve United.

"There are players in that United squad to play good attacking football".
