Manchester United were back in training on Sunday morning as Alexis Sanchez looks ahead to his Premier League debut for the club on Wednesday.

Following their resounding FA Cup victory over Yeovil on Friday evening, the Red Devils returned to Carrington as Sanchez and Co now turn their attention to Tottenham in their midweek game at Wembley.

Despite the hectic start to life at Old Trafford, the former Arsenal winger looked happy as he and his new team-mates wrapped up for the training session.

The Chilean forward made an instant impact during his first appearance for United, after setting up both Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera to score in the club's 4-1 win at Huish Park.

Jose Mourinho heaped praise on the 29-year-old following their cup win over the League Two side. 

'He was cheap, wasn't he?' said Mourinho. 'A free transfer! He was free. For that price, he is fantastic. I think everyone thinks the same in this country.

'I think everyone has to agree that he is a fantastic player. He has great quality and scores goals, makes assists, has a good attitude when the team loses the ball, he's good at set pieces. I think really he is one of the best attacking players in the world.'

Despite Sanchez's debut, Jesse Lingard continued his fine run-of-form after scoring a fantastic solo effort, which could give Mourinho a bit of a selection headache. 

The 55-year-old fielded a young squad in their fourth-round FA Cup tie on Friday which will allow the Portuguese boss to field a strong side against Spurs.

United remain 12 points behind their local rivals and league leaders Manchester City going into their game on Wednesday.
