United supporters saw Alexis Sanchez in action for the first time since his big move from Arsenal during their FA Cup encounter against Yeovil Town. The match ended a resounding 4-0 to United, and Sanchez had an important presence in the creation of the first two goals.
All in all, the Chilean was already looking like the perfect cog in Jose Mourinho’s side, and the manner in which he functioned was reacted to positively by the fans.
Supporters stormed to Twitter to comment upon the highly anticipated debut. A strong amount of those comments focused on the player’s work ethic and the sheer amount of effort he put in.

Seeing a player put on the no.7 jersey after such a long time is what undoubtedly put a lot of the supporters in a brilliant mood.
Further, his lively nature had many of them being very optimistic going into the second half of the season. But what they will also be hoping for is that consistency is maintained by their winter signing.
Thought Alexis Sánchez's debut was very good tonight. Made things he did look effortless and posed such a threat going forward. Some big things coming Manchester United's way from him. #FullTimeLiam

Fine debut from Sanchez. Created both goals and always looked to make things happen. Maybe the only starter tonight who should be retained for the XI at Spurs. #mufc

Wait so Sanchez got knocked out of the FA cup with Arsenal and is back in the competition with Manutd. When Jesus says yes no man can say no

Sanchez showed one thing, the ability and willingness to play the killer ball. Lukaku will easily surpass 30 for the season now with that kind of service. Can’t wait to see him in the PL now. 🔥

For the time being at least, Sanchez’s infamous brand of selfish football was not on the show, and the Red Devils will be eagerly hoping it stays that way and doesn’t go sour like it did at the Emirates.
