Manchester United fans took to social media to vent their frustrations at Jose Mourinho for starting one star in particular vs Tottenham in the FA Cup semi-final.
Manchester United fans were distraught when Alexis Sanchez was named ahead of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford vs Tottenham.
Alexis Sanchez received a flurry of abuse from Manchester United fans on social media a whole hour prior to the FA Cup semi-final vs Tottenham kicked off.
United fans were distraught at the news that Jose Mourinho had opted to start to Chilean forward in a front three that did not include either Marcus Rashford or Anthony Martial.
Sanchez was part of a disappointing Manchester United side that fell to a 1-0 defeat to relegation-doomed West Brom at Old Trafford last weekend.
Despite this, Mourinho has opted to keep his faith in the star that joined from Arsenal in January. The self-proclaimed special one opted to deploy both Sanchez and Jesse Lingard in a front three sitting behind Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku. The full United starting eleven also included the likes of Phil Jones and and Ander Herrera and can be seen below alongside the Tottenham side also.

Mou said he’d give chance to those that didn’t play against West Brom in the final Jones didn’t and got a place in the final
Rashford did well so why isn’t he starting?
Sanchez was dog shit against West Brom
Mou is a lying piece of shit https://t.co/aPL9K0Ye2c
