Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has suggested that the club drops Alexis Sanchez for their FA Cup semi-final clash with Tottenham this weekend.
The Chilean arrived from Arsenal with high hopes in January when the club made him the best-paid layer in the Premier League.
Though, despite expectations, the player has been able to live up to the hype and has only scored one goal in 2018.
Some of that is down to learning a new club, learning new tactics but some of that is down to confidence and he really looks to be struggling.
Now, Paul Scholes has suggested that the side drop him for the FA Cup clash with Tottenham on Saturday after being rested against Bournemouth last night.
“I think the big decision is who plays either side of Lukaku. I’d go Rashford and Martial but I think he will probably bring Sanchez back into it,” Scholes said on BT Sport.
“I just don’t think his form has been good enough. I think he’s been quite predictable – we all know the talent he’s got.
“Obviously there is a magnificent player in there but at Manchester United, he’s just not showing it yet. I think Martial and Rashford are a better option.”
“Matic will come back in and Pogba will play. Will he play Herrera? I don’t think so.
“He will need to get two people in alongside Pogba because in the Wembley game he was all over the place.”
Since Alexis Sanchez joined Manchester United, Chris Smalling has scored more goals for them (3) than Sanchez (2) has.
