Alexis Sanchez

Manchester United registered their first win of the US pre-season tour and it was a nervous one as Jose Mourinho’s side came out on top 9-8 on penalties.

It took 26 penalties for the match to be decided as Franck Kessie’s Panenka went over the bar after Ander Herrera had scored his second from the shoot-out.

Alexis Sanchez was once again our best player as he took up the role of Anthony Martial in the starting XI. The French attacker left the United side as his partner is expected to give birth to their boy and Sanchez took full advantage of the start.

The Chilean scored the opening goal of the game as he slotted past Gianluigi Donnarumma in the 12th minute. However, the lead did not last long as Suso grabbed an equaliser for the Serie A side just three minutes later.

One major surprise was that Matteo Darmian was given the captain’s armband as he started the game and Antonio Valencia was sent back home after picking up an injury during the second game of the tour.

It certainly was a long game for the fans to soak up and here are some of the best reactions from Twitter.
