Sanchez hailed by boss
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is excited about Alexis Sanchez's future following his goalscoring return to Arsenal.
Sanchez was making his comeback from a hamstring injury and bagged an impressive goal on his Emirates Stadium return to set United on the way to a 3-1 FA Cup fourth-round win.
The Chilean swapped the Gunners for United 12 months ago and has found life tough at Old Trafford, but reminded Arsenal fans of what they were missing as he coolly finished from an acute angle after rounding Petr Cech.
Further goals from Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial, either side of a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang effort for Arsenal, sent United through to the fifth round - and made it eight wins from eight under the Norwegian's interim spell.
Solskjaer knows Sanchez has more to give and hopes his goal can help him kick on.
"It wasn't like Alexis had an open goal, it was a great finish," he said of the 31st-minute opener. "Every player, the more confident you get, the more you want to get on the pitch and train and work on yourself, and you trust yourself.
"He has been injured lately, so it was great to see him get 65-70 minutes tonight and he can only improve, and I think he knows that himself."
