Manchester United currently find themselves in a spot of bother after a poor start in the current campaign, with a top four spot looking unlikely at this moment in time.
The Red Devils only just managed to beat Newcastle United prior to the international break, thanks to an inspired second half display from Jose Mourinho’s side.
However, Manchester United will travel to Stamford Bridge to face title challengers Chelsea in their next Premier League encounter.
Indeed, this will be a key game for a couple of the club’s first team members, with a disappointing showing possibly causing for them to be axed and frozen out of the side.
With that in mind, here’s a look at TWO players that could face axing if they don’t put in a huge performance…
The Belgian hasn’t been able to find his feet in front of goal in recent times, which has forced supporters to show less and less faith in him leading the line for the Red Devils.
Indeed, the forward has contributed at times in the current campaign but it has been his first touch and lack of potency that has caused for concern recently.
So, it’s vital that Romelu Lukaku silences his critics and avoids any doubt being cast over his future by putting in a huge performance against one of his former clubs today.
Alexis Sanchez just hasn’t been able to live up to expectations since making the move to Manchester United during the January transfer window, with just one goal and one assist to his name in the current campaign.
Indeed, the South American has the ability to establish himself as one of the best attackers in world football, but his performances in the red shirt just haven’t been good enough up to this point.
So, the winger needs to get his act together by putting in an accomplished performance against Chelsea, with another disappointing showing pushing him even further down the pecking order.
