Man United fans copy Arsenal
Back at the start of 2017, Arsenal fans produced an eye-catching banner at the Emirates Stadium.
Already back then there was plenty of conversation about Alexis’s ongoing stay at the Gunners.
In an effort from the fans to show how much the Chilean meant to them, they honoured the footballer’s dogs at their ground.
As everyone knows, Alexis Sanchez has two dogs called Atom and Humber.
Accordingly, Arsenal fans displayed the following banner over a year ago.

On Saturday at Old Trafford, Atom and Humber got a new banner at the Theatre of Dreams.
‘Alexis Sanchez, Atom & Humber’ banner at Old Trafford
A huge banner appeared in the stadium with a picture of Alexis Sanchez with his dogs.
The banner read: Welcome to Manchester: Alexis, Atom & Humber.
It was obviously an instant hit on social media.
However the banner was only on show for a few minutes before Stewards took it down.

Man United vs Huddersfield
Huddersfield kept Man United at bay in the first half on Saturday.
But early in the second period the Red Devils took the lead through 75 million pound man Romelu Lukaku.
Lukaku was in the right place at the near post to volley home from a left wing Juan Mata cross.
It was Lukaku’s 12th goal of the Premier League season.
