Manchester United 0-Zero San Jose Earthquakes: Alexis Sanchez makes first begin
Alexis Sanchez made his first look of Manchester United’s US tour as they have been held by San Jose Earthquakes in Santa Clara.
Sanchez, whose arrival on the tour was delayed by visa problems, was the Purple Devils’ most vibrant attacker till his second-half substitution.
United defender Eric Bailly hit the bar within the early phases, a feat matched by San Jose’s Chris Wondolowski late on.
Nevertheless, United have been once more with out quite a few their World Cup gamers.
France’s Paul Pogba, Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku and England duo Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford have been amongst these lacking though Sanchez, Bailly, Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial all began.
In the meantime, David de Gea, Nemanja Matic and new Brazilian signing Fred are anticipated to participate in coaching over the subsequent few days.
San Jose made 15 substitutions in a largely uneventful sport on the Levi Stadium.
The one second of actual concern for United boss Jose Mourinho got here through the first half when captain Antonio Valencia limped off injured.
“He is injured and I feel we have to get used to it,” Mourinho instructed MUTV. “Final season he was already in this kind of state of affairs and this season he’ll in all probability have extra of that.”
