Manchester United were absolutely delighted with Alexis Sanchez’s performance vs Swansea as he helped his side quickly dominate the away side.
The Chilean was instrumental in his club’s impressive opening 20 minutes, scoring and assisting as he looked refreshed following the international break.
Sanchez has been criticised since his move to Old Trafford for failing to live up to the same kind of form he showed for Arsenal.
The versatile attacker’s ability was never in question but his tendency to lose the ball left fans frustrated, particularly since his overall performances were poor.
However, against a lacklustre Swansea side Alexis showed signs of him returning to his best and United fans can’t wait for that to happen.
Pleased to see Alexis Sánchez on the scoresheet. Hopefully he can kick on and get back to his world class form.

This has been Sanchez's best performance for United so far. Apparent this season the #mufc attack functions better when only one of Sanchez, Rashford and Martial are starting.

Only 21 minutes in and that is by far the best I have seen of Sanchez in a United shirt.

Another concern from supporters with the arrival of Alexis Sanchez was where he would fit in to the Red Devils current starting XI.
It initially appeared as though Jose Mourinho wasn’t sure where to play his star player as well since he moved his new signing all over the front four.
There was never any doubts as to what Sanchez brings to Manchester United but more so what it means for Martial and Rashford who need the game time to continue developing.
So far Mourinho’s been able to juggle their game time fairly well so far but there will come a time when he will need to make a decision on their futures.
