Thierry Henry believes that Manchester United’s signing of Alexis Sanchez has left them with an “amazing” squad.

The Chile international signed for the Red Devils from Arsenal last week as he headed to Old Trafford as part of the same deal which saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan move in the other direction.

Sanchez made his Premier League debut for the Red Devils on Wednesday night but he was unable to prevent Jose Mourinho’s men from being out-played as they slumped to a 2-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley.

That result left Manchester United 15 points behind Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table.

However, despite the disappointment of Wednesday’s game, Henry feels that Mourinho now has a top quality squad at his disposal.

Speaking to Sky Sports News on Wednesday, Henry said: “They got Alexis Sanchez in what I would say was an unexpected deal.

“I’m not going to name the whole squad, but they do have an amazing squad [now].”

Manchester United will look to get back to winning ways in the Premier League when they take on Huddersfield Town in front of their home fans at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Devils will quickly be looking to bounce back as they bid to try and at least finish as runners-up to Manchester City in the race for the Premier League title.
