On Friday night, Manchester United secured a comfortable 4-0 win over League Two side Yeovil Town in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
The result was no surprise as Jose Mourinho’s side were strong favourites heading into the encounter at Huish Park.
All eyes were on Alexis Sanchez as he made his debut for the Red Devils following a transfer from Arsenal, which also saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan move the other way to the Emirates.
The Chile international was named in the starting XI and played 70 minutes of the match before being replaced with Jesse Lingard, who went on to score United’s third goal.
After the final whistle, Sanchez, who created the assist for Ander Herrera’s goal, was named the BBC’s Man of the Match.
Yeovil decided to mock the decision on Twitter.
#Alexis7 is announced as man of the match.

United fans were unimpressed with the social media post, and some accused the lower-division club of being bitter because of the result.
We pack out your stadium….
