Alexis Sanchez's locker will be positioned next to Marcus Rashford's in the Old Trafford dressing room under orders from Jose Mourinho, according to reports.

Sanchez made his Manchester United debut on Friday as they thrashed Yeovil 4-0 at Huish Park to advance to the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Mourinho said Sanchez's arrival from Arsenal brings 'extra maturity and class' to United's squad after the Chilean joined in a swap deal with Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

And The Sun reports that Mourinho has requested Sanchez's locker to be positioned between Rashford's and Jesse Lingard's so that United's England stars can learn from their newest signing. 

At 29, Sanchez is ten years Rashford's senior and Mourinho hopes the former Barcelona star can help the 19-year-old's development with his experience of playing at the very highest level. 

Sanchez played 72 minutes against League Two Yeovil and provided the assist for Ander Herrera to score United's second of the match. 

Rashford had opened the scoring four minutes before half-time and further goals from Lingard and Romelu Lukaku ensured a comfortable win for Mourinho's men.

Sanchez could make his Premier League debut for United at Wembley when they face Tottenham on Wednesday evening.  

Mourinho praised Sanchez after his debut against Yeovil and said the new addition had 'no questions' to answer at Premier League level.

'I'm very happy with Alexis, his performance was no surprise to anyone. He has had three-and-a-half years in the Premier League and there are no questions to ask over him in English football.

'He has been with us for only three days, but he is an amazing addition. He needed to play, but he wasn't ready for 90 minutes and I was thinking maybe 60 or 65. 

'He will get better the more time he gets to understand his players and they can understand him.'
