The Chilean star, Alexis Sanchez along with Jesse Lingard, has been left out of the match-day squad for the Premier League clash against the Hammers
Jose Mourinho simply replied “options” when asked why he has left Alexis Sanchez out of his squad for the Premier League clash with West Ham.
The former Arsenal star has struggled to hit top form ever since joining United in January 2018, with his inconsistent performances continuing at the start of the 2018-19 season.
That has seen Alexis, who is yet to score in the new campaign, left out of the match-day squad to face the Hammers, as Mourinho’s side look to bounce back following their home draw with Wolves and Carabao Cup exit to Derby County.
The United boss revealed to BT Sport that Alexis, along with Jesse Lingard, had been left out because he has “options” in his squad.
The absence of Alexis Sanchez and Lingard means Anthony Martial is given a start in attack, alongside Romelu Lukaku.
There are also starts for Scott McTominay, Nemanja Matic and Marouane Fellaini, with Paul Pogba also returning despite the reported friction between the France World Cup winner and his manager.
Indeed, Mourinho revealed in his pre-match press conference that, while he and Pogba shared a “good” relationship, no player at Manchester United is bigger than the club.
