Sanchez mocked over man of the match award on Manchester United debut

Yeovil mocked the decision to award Alexis Sanchez the man of the match award on his Manchester United debut.

The Chilean made his bow in the FA Cup fourth round clash at Huish Park as United ran out 4-0 winners

Sanchez started for United and impressed before leaving the field after just over 70 minutes to be replaced by Jesse Lingard.

He was awarded the man of the match award by the BBC but Yeovil took to Twitter to question the decision.

The League Two side tweeted: "Alexis is announced as man of the match. Not sure who picked it but that’s a commercially-driven decision if ever there was one!"

Jose Mourinho was full of praise of his newest recruit after he made his debut days after signing from Arsenal.

"He is a fantastic addition," Mourinho told BBC Sport.

"His choice for the second goal is a choice that a player like Marcus Rashford is too nervous to make."

"Good players want good players," he added.

"The question is always which one is going to be left out, it is not about that for us."
