New Manchester United signing, Alexis Sanchez is set for his debut appearance for the Red Devils.

Jose Mourinho confirmed the man he rates as “one of the best attacking players in the world” will be in his squad to face Yeovil in the FA Cup clash on Friday.

United’s new number seven completed his move to Old Trafford on Monday in a straight swap deal with Arsenal that saw £35million-rated midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan head in the opposite direction.

Sanchez, 29, will now be part of the group Mourinho takes to Huish Park for a fourth-round tie with the League Two Glovers on Friday night.

“In the Premier League he has shown already the quality he has. We got one of the best attacking players in the world,” Mourinho said of Sanchez.

“I think he’s very important for us because we want to have the best possible players.”

Should he feature at Yeovil, Mourinho may consider Sanchez for a number of different attacking roles.
