Man United 2-0 Huddersfield: Alexis Sanchez Scores On Home Debut


Alexis Sanchez opened his Manchester United goalscoring account on his home debut as they beat Huddersfield 2-0 in the Premier League on Saturday.

After a first half lacking in chances, United went ahead 10 minutes after the break through Romelu Lukaku’s 97th Premier League goal, turning home Juan Mata’s fine cross

Sanchez then grabbed his first United goal in unconventional fashion, seeing a penalty he had originally won saved by Jonas Lossl, only to sweep the rebound into the net

The result means United claw back two points on leaders Manchester City following their earlier draw at Burnley, and are now 13 points behind in second. Huddersfield, without a win in eight, are down to 19th.

United now go to Newcastle on Super Sunday at 2.15pm in the Premier League, while Huddersfield are at Birmingham for their FA Cup fourth-round replay on Tuesday evening before hosting Bournemouth on Sunday.
