However, both Sanchez and Lukaku played a crucial role in sealing a 2-1 victory for Inter against Parma on Thursday.

Lukaku set up Sanchez for Inter's opener early in the second half at the Ennio Tardini.
And the former United players combined together in the 62nd minute as Lukaku launched a stunning counterattack from inside his own half.
The in-form Lukaku superbly dribbled to the outside of the Parma box before picking out Sanchez, who expertly converted with a cool side-footed finish past Luigi Sepe.
United fans have now been brutally trolled on social media and reminded of the decision to axe Lukaku and Sanchez after their respective performances for Inter.

Sanchez's second-half brace sealed an important three points for Antonio Conte's men in the Serie A title race.
Inter are currently top of the table and hold a six-point lead over fierce rivals AC Milan.
Defending champions Juventus trail Inter by 10 points, but they can cut the points deficit down slightly with a victory over Lazio on Saturday.
Inter, meanwhile, will resume their title challenge on 8th March as they host Atalanta at the San Siro.
