Manchester United fans will be very keen to see Alexis Sanchez for the first time if he makes his debut at Huish Park against Yeovil Town in the FA Cup this evening.
The Chile international stunned everyone by joining the Red Devils after being heavily linked to United’s local rivals Manchester City for months.
Sanchez moved to Old Trafford from Arsenal in a swap deal, which involved Henrikh Mkhitaryan joining the North London outfit.
While fans will be happy to see their new signing pull on the United shirt for the first time, there is another player who the supporters are desperate to watch.
Seventeen-year-old Angel Gomes could feature against Yeovil this evening as the Manchester Evening News reports that the teenager was part of Jose Mourinho’s travelling squad.
The London-born midfielder has been associated with United since he was six years of age and has been lighting up the youth ranks in recent seasons.
Ahead of this evening’s FA Cup fourth-round encounter, fans have been calling for Gomes to play.
Hope Gomes gets minutes tonight #mufc

Really hope Angel Gomes gets some playing time against Yeovil. He has a bright future and needs to get first team experience and what a better outing than a League 2 side in the FA Cup. #MUFC pic.twitter.com/7Aze5GZeHD
