The arrival of Alexis Sanchez at Manchester United has got many fans and pundits alike wondering where the Chilean will fit in Jose Mourinho’s team.
The former Barcelona star began his career as a right winger, but over the years he has proved that he is just as influential from the left; perhaps even more so.
Sanchez has caused damage on numerous occasions by cutting inside from the left onto his right foot.
At Arsenal, the 29-year-old played wide left, but also through the middle, which means that his position could potentially be tinkered with by Mourinho.
Numerous media outlets, including Sky Sports, have been suggesting where they believe Sanchez will feature for the Red Devils.
The broadcaster opted to place the Chilean on the left side, with Marcus Rashford on the right, and Jesse Lingard in the middle, just behind Romelu Lukaku.
Is this how Manchester United should line up?

The selection did not go down well with a large number of United fans, who feel that Anthony Martial should be a guaranteed starter due to his current form.
The Frenchman has scored three goals and produced two assists in his last four outings for the North-West outfit.
A handful of United supporters hit out at Sky for dropping Martial in favour of Sanchez, and instead suggested that another player should make way for the club’s new signing.

Hahahaha, Sky as usual trying their upmost to bury Martial to save the English talent.
Alexis will either be 10 or RW, there's no way he's usurping our best attacker, it would make no sense.
