Manchester United fans were absolutely ecstatic after Alexis Sanchez’s performance vs Manchester City in the Premier League at the Etihad.
Jose Mourinho’s men secured perhaps the result of the season by beating Pep Guardiola’s side 3-2 having been down 2-0 at half time.
United put in a gutless display in the first half but completely turned things around in the second with goals coming from Paul Pogba and Chris Smalling.
Sanchez was instrumental in all three goals as he had a hand in all of them but did grab two assists to have proof of his good shift.
Although the Chilean’s game was a little forgotten about due to Pogba’s brace, eagle eyed supporters didn’t forget him entirely after the match.
Best performance in a Manchester United shirt for Alexis Sánchez. Big game, big player.

Alexis has returned from his international break with his country an entirely different animal it appears and fans will surely hope his improved form continues.
It’s fair to say the former Arsenal man hadn’t had the best of starts to life at Old Trafford but seems to finally be getting into the groove of things.
Supporters will definitely see an even better Alexis Sanchez next season but there are hopes he could continue in order to finish the season strong.
The FA Cup trophy and second place in the Premier League table are very much still on the line for Manchester United and they cannot rest on their laurels after the comeback win against their fierce rivals.
Sanchez could prove to be key in helping the club meet both targets to complete a decent season for himself as well as his team.
