Manchester United players were delighted for Alexis Sanchez after he proved the matchwinner against Newcastle United.
Alexis struck in front of the Stretford End for the 3-2 triumph.
“I would have wanted to have been in his shoes today [scoring the winner], but the guy is working really hard,” Romelu Lukaku told MUTV. “I think he’s one of the most hard-working professionals I have ever seen and to give us the win, he deserves it and I am really happy for him.”
Luke Shaw, who has won both our Player-of-the-Month awards this term, was also keen to suggest Alexis will be boosted after his intervention off the bench.
“It’s massive,” he told MUTV. “As football players, confidence is something you need when you step onto the pitch. You need to believe in yourself, you need to have that confidence to do things and we know how much of a special player he is and today could have been a massive confidence boost.”
