FA Cup By: Ayodeji Tunde | 26/01/2018

Alexis Sanchez made his official debut for Manchester United on Friday night at Huish Park as the Red Devils coasted to a 0-4 win against Yeovil Town in their FA Fourth Round tie.

The Chilean was on for 72 minutes but he fired blanks as United relied on goals from Marcus Rashford, Andres Herera and late strikes from Jesse Lingard and Romelu Lukaku to pull through.

Despite all eyes being on the first few touches of Sanchez, it was Yeovil who created the first opportunity of the match with Jordan Green forcing a block out of Sergio Romero from an acute angle.

The first goal for United arrived in the 41st minute when Tom James had the ball inside his own penalty area, but the young Welshman failed to clear and Rashford got ahead of the defender before finding the bottom corner from eight yards.

While it was Herrera that doubled United's lead, Lingard added a third with a fine individual goal, racing from the right flank before sending the ball into the far corner of the net from 14 yards.

The scoring was still not complete, with Lukaku getting on the scoresheet with the final attack of the game after being able to convert Marcos Rojo's cross into the top corner from six yards out.
