Alexis Sanchez joined Manchester United, this monthERIC DIER has slammed Alexis Sanchez ahead of Tottenham’s match against Manchester United this Wednesday.Sanchez joined United this month after Arsenal agreed to let the Chilean go.
His contract was expiring at the end of the season so the Gunners decided to cash in on him now.
As part of the deal they received Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
And Sanchez wasted no time in getting involved after starring on his debut.
He started the Red Devils’ FA Cup tie against Yeovil, grabbing two assists before coming off.
He is expected to make his Premier League debut against Spurs on Wednesday night.But Sanchez has been told he will have little effect on the fixture and that he will not change much.
That is the opinion of defensive midfielder Dier, who will be tasked with handling the ex-Barcelona forward.
Eric Dier has revealed his thoughts on Alexis Sanchez to Man Utd“The game as a whole won’t change because of one player. I don’t think [Sanchez’s Premier League bow for United] is going to make a difference,” Dier said.”We all know the quality he has as a player but he’s going to add to a United squad that is already full of quality.
“It’s going to be a great game, a difficult game, but I don’t think one player changes a football match.”
Spurs go into match after a disappointing 1-1 draw against Newport in the FA Cup.
A Harry Kane goal saved the Premier League runners-up from an embarrassing cup exit.And with a massive game at Anfield against Liverpool this weekend, the clash against United this week has been amplified.
“Every game is really important now — it really doesn’t matter. The Newport game was just as important as them,” Dier said.
Alexis Sanchez is expected to make his Premier League debut for Man Utd against TottenhamUnited, on the other hand, are still 12 points behind Manchester City in second.Although it is starting to appear futile, Jose Mourinho is keen to push Pep Guardiola’s men all the way.
“We don’t want to go on holidays. We want to play until the last match,” he said last month.
