Manchester United fans have started to see signs of the real Alexis Sanchez in recent weeks following a slow start to the attacker’s Old Trafford career.
Sanchez struggled to make his mark at United in the early stages of 2018, but the Chilean has been in fine form for the Red Devils in recent weeks.
Indeed, the 29-year-old starred in the club’s 3-2 win over Manchester City in the Premier League, and was on the scoresheet against Tottenham Hotspur in the semi-finals of the FA Cup last weekend.
United boss Jose Mourinho spoke glowingly about Sanchez, who has 121 caps for the Chilean national team, in his pre-match press conference ahead of Sunday afternoon’s Premier League fixture with Arsenal.
And it appears that the United fans share Mourinho’s view that the former Barcelona attacker will reach a new level for the 20-time English champions next season.
Sanchez is a quality footballer no doubt, and he will be keen to get one over on his former club at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
Jose on @Alexis_Sanchez: "We all knew how good he was, and that's why we fought to have him here. I was sure, since day one, that he was the right player for us, not just his football qualities, but his mentality and experience, too." pic.twitter.com/2sN3B2OtWI

Better than Martial.

Sanchez is quality for sure, but is still adjusting. He came in mid-season , had to move house and family and get settled into a new club in weeks. Not to mention learning to play a different style with different team mates. He still needs time to settle, but he is pure quality.
