Manchester United supporters want to see Alexis Sanchez given another chance to impress in the No.9 role against Juventus on Wednesday.
Romelu Lukaku was replaced by Marcus Rashford against Everton and an injury for the Belgian ahead of AFC Bournemouth meant Sanchez was handed the chance to play down the middle.
And he displayed signs of promise, supplying an assist for Anthony Martial – now with five goals in five games – following some impressive movement in the box.
With Alexis, Rashford and Lukaku all playing up front in recent times, combined with Martial’s goalscoring form, we thought it would be interesting to see who exactly supporters want to see playing up front in Turin this week.

As it turns out, most supporters want to see Sanchez given another go. The Chilean displayed some encouraging movement along Bournemouth’s last line of defence on Saturday, opening up spaces for others in the process, and certainly looks more useful down the middle than playing out wide.

Rather hav Sanchez

Other supporters were less concerned with which player should start at No.9 and more interested in emphasising that it should not be Lukaku, who has gone over 800 minutes without a goal.
Anyone apart from Lukaku.

This next suggestion, standing resolutely on its own, probably belongs in the ‘maybe’ pile.
