Alexis Sanchez suffered another torid night for Manchester United as Jose Mourinho’s men failed to win for the fourth game in a row, this time failing to beat Valencia in the Champions League.
Paul Pogba has been getting most of the headlines this season at Manchester United, with Jose Mourinho not far behind him in second place, but the Frenchman’s problems are quickly being overshadowed by Alexis Sanchez’.
The Chilean signed from Arsenal in January as a swap for Henrikh Mkhitaryan and at the time it was a coup for United as they beat Manchester City to his signature but things have quickly turned sour.
Sanchez wasn’t on form at the end of last season and despite having a summer off and getting a full summer of training with his new team he’s had a terrible start to the season. He was dropped against West Ham at the weekend but came back for tonight against Valencia.
He lasted until the second half but fans were not happy with his shocking performance as the Red Devils could only draw 0-0:
Jose Mourinho’s men needed a win having lost to West Ham and Derby and drawn with Wolves in the last 10 days but they failed to show enough to beat their La Liga opponents.
United’s previous win over Young Boys means they stay in the top two in the group for now but it once again wasn’t a good performance.
The pressure will remain on the manager after another night lacking in inspiration. Sanchez too remains under pressure as he has another poor game.
