Where is Alexis Sanchez?
Manchester United may be without Chilean star Alexis Sanchez on Sunday in the Premier League.
Jose Mourinho’s men take on Brighton & Hove Albion today.
But Man United fans are fearing that Sanchez is out of the Seagulls game after he was nowhere to be seen with the club’s travelling squad.
As confirmed by the Manchester Evening News, Alexis Sanchez wasn’t pictured with the Man United squad as they headed to Brighton.
To be clear, there has been no official confirmation that Alexis is out of the game. Nor has there been any suggestion Sanchez is injured.
It is possible that the South American could have made alternative plans to turn up at the Amex Stadium.
However supporters are now alerted to the fact Sanchez may be absent this weekend.
Re #MUFC and depending on whether Sanchez starts or not (reports he hasn’t travelled), I’d like to see Lukaku come in for Rashford and possibly Lingard or Martial wide right for Mata. Spaniard is a willing runner but very slow at getting back v #LCFC to help Darmian.

Jose Mourinho should welcome back more players this weekend.
Jesse Lingard is in line for his first appearance of the season following the 2018 World Cup.
However Man United are expected to again be without Nemanja Matic and Antonio Valencia, even though the pair have returned to training in recent days.
Sergio Romero, Ander Herrera, Diogo Dalot and Marcos Rojo are all injured for Man United.
