Manchester United stunned the Premier League when they swooped under Manchester City’s nose to snatch Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal.
The Chile international had been heavily tipped to join Pep Guardiola’s side, but in the end, he left the Gunners to sign for Jose Mourinho’s team.
The 29-year-old was one of Arsenal’s key players during a three-and-a-half-year spell at the Emirates.
During his time at the club, Sanchez netted 60 Premier League goals, and even though the attacker has only been at United for a few weeks, questions have been raised about his form.
The former Barcelona star has made eight appearances in all competitions, and in that process has netted once.
The main issue at the moment is positioning, with many fans questioning why the attacker has been placed on the left of a midfield three.
Sanchez was one of the under-performers in Wednesday night’s goalless draw with Sevilla in the first leg of their last-16 tie in the Champions League.
Now, United fans have been discussing the predicament surrounding the Chilean.
Sanchez should have been eased in the squad ..not straight up play him every game . he didn't know our play. Now everyone has to change to fit his play . Lindelof was eased in .#MUFC

Don't know why people are acting so surprised that Sanchez has come and taken Martial's place. There was only 2 places he was going to play if he arrived. Left wing or in 10 where Lingard plays. I warned you guys of this a long time ago but no one wanted to listen #MUFC

Martial or even Sanchez as CF would give us much more mobility, creativity and combination play. Not writing Lukaku off but it's getting to a point where something has to give #mufc

I just saw a tweet saying Alexis Sanchez shouldn't have signed ?. Like seriously ?. Next game if he scores a hattrick, people will again change opinion. Twitter has become worst post any United game i swear. #MUFC

I wanna see Sanchez at CF with Mata behind him just as a little experiment
For some reason I'm thinking that can definitely work…#mufc

Sanchez signing without doubt has unsettled the team. Its true whether you like it or not. Hes now playing LW meaning our best attacker, Martial either plays RW or plays 10 mins from the bench.#mufc

I've seen enough of Sanchez to know that he won't be a success here at United under Jose Mourinho. No chance #MUFC
