Alexis Sanchez has opened his goal scoring account for Manchester United as he was on target in the 2-0 victory recorded over Huddersfield Town at Old Trafford on Saturday.

It was the home debut for the Chilean striker and he was happy to mark the occasion with a goal.

United dominated possession throughout against the relegation-threatened visitors, but it took until the 55th minute for them to find the breakthrough courtesy of a Romelu Lukaku strike.
