Jose Mourinho and Juan Mata have both praised the instant impact Alexis Sanchez has had at Manchester United after he netted his first goal for the club.
Sanchez put in a lively individual display overall as Huddersfield were seen off 2-0 and Mourinho reflected: “He was really enjoying the dynamic of the team and the dynamic he was giving to the team.
“I don’t think it is a dream goal for Alexis – every player prefers to score a penalty. But it also shows his attention to detail, his reaction and his desire. So for me, that’s fine.”
Mata was also pleased for Sanchez as he capped a man-of-the-match performance on his home debut with a goal.
“It is important (to get your first goal), you know? When you’re an attacking player and you arrive to a new club you feel like the sooner you score the better,” Mata told MUTV.
“We are so happy for him, he scored a goal and he created a lot of things, so we’re happy to have him with us.”
