Alexis Sanchez sent clear warning about his Man United form
Graeme Souness discusses Alexis Sanchez's disappointing start to life in a Manchester United shirt
Graeme Souness has admitted that he has been very disappointed with Alexis Sanchez’s start to life at Manchester United.
The Chile international signed for the Red Devils from Arsenal in the January transfer window as part of the same deal which saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan head to The Emirates.
Sanchez has been a regular fixture in the first team at Old Trafford since his move but he seems to be struggling to recreate his top form for Jose Mourinho’s men
The 29-year-old drew another blank as Manchester United beat Chelsea FC 2-1 in the Premier League on Sunday and Sanchez has only scored one goal – from the penalty spot – so far for the Red Devils.
And former Liverpool FC star Souness feels that Sanchez has struggled to live up to his billing in a Manchester United shirt so far this season.
Speaking to Sky Sports on Sunday, Souness said: “His career hasn’t got going at United yet. Every time I watch him, I think ‘where are you?’ – when he was at Arsenal he was being the difference.
“Today [against Chelsea FC] he was absent, I can’t think of a single thing he did in the game.”
Sanchez will be hoping to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils return to Premier League action on Monday night with a trip to Crystal Palace.
The Red Devils are currently in second place in the Premier League table as they chase Champions League qualification this season following their sixth-placed finish last term.
