The focus is on Jose Mourinho but Manchester United’s crisis involves more than the coach and one of those names is Alexis Sanchez.
The ex Arsenal star’s performances are far cry from the expectations that greeted his signing in January as part of the deal which sent Henrikh Mkhitaryan to Arsenal.
It is now 832 minutes without a goal in the Premier League for the Chilean, who last found the back of the net on March 31 in a 2-0 win over Swansea City.
Since then, he has scored only once in a competitive game by netting in the FA Cup on April 21 against Tottenham Hotspur in a 2-1 win.
His poor form hasn’t gone unnoticed and has has lost the undeniable edge he had when he arrived.
Mourinho has noticed it too and the forward has played just one full game this season, in the 2-1 win over Leicester City on the opening night of the season.
He missed the second game through injury, reappeared as a substitute in the defeat against Spurs before being substituted in the wins over Burnley and Watford as well as in the draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
It is very unlike the Chilean to register such displays since arriving in Europe as he has always been among the goals.
He had 80 goals and 45 assists in 116 games with Arsenal, managed 47 goals and 36 assists in 141 Barcelona matches and netted 21 times and provided 20 assists in 112 appearances for Udinese .
