Paul Scholes believes that there is plenty more to come from Alexis Sanchez in a Manchester United shirt.

The Chile international has been getting used to life at Old Trafford after completing his much-anticipated move to Old Trafford from Arsenal in the January transfer window.

Sanchez opened his Manchester United goal-scoring account when he netted a penalty in the Red Devils’ 2-0 win over Hull City in the Premier League earlier this month.

Former Manchester United midfielder Scholes feels that Sanchez is yet to really hit the ground running at Old Trafford following his high profile move, which saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan head in the opposite direction to Arsenal.

But the Red Devils legend is expecting big things for the Chile international in the seasons to come.

Speaking to BT Sport on Friday night, Scholes said: “He’s started OK in his Man United career. It’s not been magnificent, it’s not been brilliant so far.

“But I expect more to come from him.”

Sanchez will be hoping to start for Manchester United when the Red Devils return to Premier League action on Wednesday night with a trip to Sevilla for the first leg of their Champions League last 16 clash.

The Red Devils are currently in second place in the Premier League table as they look to try and at least finish in the top four in the top flight in Jose Mourinho’s second campaign in charge.
