After a poor start to his Red Devils career, the former Arsenal attacker must show his Champions League pedigree against Sevilla, It has not exactly been the ideal start to life at Manchester United for Alexis Sanchez, with even Jose Mourinho admitting recently that his January signing has failed to make a real impact thus far.
As United prepare to face Sevilla in the second leg of their Champions League round-of-16 clash on Tuesday having drawn 0-0 in Spain, they need to start getting more out of the former Arsenal and Barcelona attacker.
His United career is still in its infancy, and his natural game has yet to convincingly match up with his new team-mates’ style. Beyond an FA Cup win at Yeovil Town and his home debut against Huddersfield Town in early February, Sanchez’s contributions have been somewhat covert to this point. Even during their current three-match winning run, the 29-year-old’s influence has been minimal.
However much an initial difficulty might have been expected, Mourinho has previously admitted that part of the reason they signed Sanchez was his potential to make a real difference in Europe. It is in the Champions League that his first six months were always going to be judged most markedly, and Tuesday’s Old Trafford fixture is the biggest of Sanchez’s United career so far as a result.
Question is how long are Manchester United fans willing to wait for Alexis?
