Alexis Sanchez finally gives Manchester United fans something to rave about

Having received quite a lot stick this season for not living up to his reputation and hype, former Arsenal player Alexis Sanchez finally looked like the player of old as Manchester United claimed a famous 2-1 Champions League win over Juventus in Turin on Wednesday evening.

The Chilean played with a lot of energy, making constant runs in behind the Juventus defence while he was also putting pressure on the back four whenever they had the ball. Sanchez started up front in place of the injured Romelu Lukaku, like he did on Saturday against Bournemouth, with Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard as the wingers.

The 29-year-old Sanchez was however replaced in the 79th minute by Marouane Fellaini which looked like a tactical change by manager José Mourinho, but it might have been down to an injury Sanchez sustained during the match.

But after a slow start to his United career, United fans are optimistic he might just be finding his rhythm after that performance and hope it could spark him to some goals for the club.

Here are some of the Twitter reactions by United fans:
