He may have had a full pre-season under his belt for the first time in 10 years after he wasn't involved in the World Cup but Alexis Sanchez was unimpressive in Manchester United's opening Premier League game against Leicester City.
United won 2-1 at Old Trafford but Sanchez wasn't on top form and regularly gave the ball away throughout in key areas - leaving many people frustrated with his performance.
Here is just some of the reaction:
Alexis Sanchez's performance so far for anyone that missed it :thumbsup: #MUNLEI #PL pic.twitter.com/CnOwTikDHP

Seriously how fucking bad is Alexis Sanchez :neutral_face::neutral_face::neutral_face::neutral_face: He must have about 13% passing accuracy! #MANLEI

Doesn't look like having the summer off has helped Alexis Sanchez at all. Looks to have regressed over the summer if anything else.

Alexis Sanchez giving the ball away constantly. He's not even an Arsenal player anymore and I'm sick of him.

You will never believe that this is the same Alexis Sanchez from 2 years. His form in his last 6 months at Arsenal till now has been shocking for his standard. Looks the shadow of himself apart from to take too many touches when the pass is far more simple

Alexis Sanchez is playing like he has been sipping some cheap Chilean wine before the match.

Alexis Sanchez is unrecognisable. Not the same player as he was two years ago #mufcvlcfc

No one can fuck with Alexis Sánchez on that sweet bad-decisions-per-minute stat

Does anybody have rare footage of Alexis Sanchez completing a pass tonight?

What, like, actually happened to Alexis Sanchez -- the former footballer?
- Kiyan Sobhani (@KiyanSo) August 10, 2018
The former Udinese man looked extremely sharp in pre-season and many United fans had high hopes for Sanchez going into 2018/19.
But his first appearance of the season was very below par, with Sanchez's decision-making incredibly poor when fed. Any player can have a bad game but with the wages he's on, you really do expect better from a player of his ilk.
Thoughts on Sanchez's display? Will he do the business this season?
