Chile global Sanchez missed the 3-2 defeat at Brighton on Sunday after picking up a muscle injury in training on Friday, although sources have told ESPN FC the problem is considered minor.
"But right now, Man United are going nowhere fast". What he was basically saying is that he's been told to work with the players he's been given.
The United boss has spent £364.3m on ten frontline players over the past five transfer windows and inherited a squad containing players of real quality when he arrived at the club, says Jackson.
"But they are all about attacking football, feel-good factor, the Theatre of Dreams, winning trophies with a smile and swagger".
For Sanchez's sake, we hope it wasn't related to his new side venture as a catalogue model. When times are tough you go back to basics, primarily because improvising requires bravery; United find it hard to move fluidly, make daring runs, or attempt risky through balls when an air of impending doom hangs in the air.
That is the verdict of Gunners legend and Premier League pundit Ian Wright. Equally, they felt any move for Tottenham's £50 million-rated Toby Alderweireld, who will turn 30 in March, was little more than the kind of short-term fix the club are eager to guard against.
Brighton began on the front foot, Solly March's cross cleared by Pogba and then Gross attempting to flick on an Anthony Knockaert delivery only for United to get it away.
"By now should Mourinho have created a genuine title-challenging unit and not one that can. go down in powder-puff style at Brighton?" Should they fail to win either of these two matches then games against Watford, Wolves, and West Ham could be very hard indeed. In team news, club captain Bruno is absent with a thigh injury.
Sánchez, a January acquisition from Arsenal, was considered a coup for Manchester United with him choosing Old Trafford after a long-gestating yet ultimately failed bid coming from the Etihad, and after a torrid second half of the season playing for the red side of Manchester, the 29 year-old certainly shown glimpses of previous form with some solid pre-season performances. "It's going to be a lot quicker and a lot more intense", added Balogun who represented Nigeria at the summer World Cup in Russian Federation. A disappointing display from Jose Mourinho's men allowed Albion to take a deserved three points on the south coast. The ghost of Chelsea's 2015/16 season will make a reappearance in the corridors of Old Trafford should things get worse.
On the hour, Rashford's risky header across goal was well dealt with by Duffy before Mourinho made his final change, Marouane Fellaini coming on for Martial as United finally began to put some pressure on their hosts. "How much more money should they squander?"
