Alexis Sanchez Starts For Manchester United In FA Cup Fourth-Round Tie Against Yeovil

New signing Alexis Sanchez will make his Manchester United debut tonight away to Yeovil Town in the FA Cup fourth-round. 

The Chilean, who joined United from Arsenal this past week, has been named to start against the League Two side by manager Jose Mourinho.

United fans will be thrilled to see Sanchez in action perhaps sooner than expected, given he has only had the opportunity to train with the squad just once his his arrival.

Elsewhere, Mourinho has given Michael Carrick a starting place in the team and he will captain the side. Carrick has not featured for the Red Devils since September with tonight marking his first appearance since receiving treatment on an irregular heart rhythm.

With United set to face Tottenham at Wembley next weekend in the league, Mourinho has decided to rest the likes of David De Gea, Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba, who haven’t even travelled with the squad for this evening’s cup tie.

The game kicks off at 7.55 p.m. and is being broadcast live on BBC One.
