Sanchez to Replace Martial in Man Utd XI

Alexis Sanchez will start in place of Anthony Martial for Manchester United against Wolves on Saturday, manager Jose Mourinho confirmed.

Martial scored in United’s 3-0 win over Young Boys in the Champions League on Wednesday, but the France international will have to settle for a place on the bench against Wolves.

Mourinho confirmed Sanchez – left on the bench in Bern and without a goal in four games this season – would return on Saturday.

“Sanchez plays tomorrow,” the Portuguese tactician told UK newspapers on Friday.

“Because Martial played 90 minutes [against Young Boys] and Sanchez played zero.”

United have claimed three straight wins after a slow start to the season, but still sit eighth in the Premier League.
