Paul Merson explains why Alexis Sanchez is past his best

Paul Merson has found the solution why Alexis Sanchez isn’t the same player and never will be.

Sanchez joined the Red Devils in January 2018 and has failed to reach the consistent performance levels of which he set at Arsenal previously.

He scored just two goals in 20 games for the club which proves that he isn’t the player he was.

“I hope we see the old Sanchez, but I don’t see the confidence or the hunger in his eyes anymore,” Merson told Sky Sports.

“The first thought that used to come to mind when you mentioned Alexis Sanchez was that he worked his socks off, he put a shift in. For the quality he possesses as a player, he works as hard as anyone, but I don’t see that anymore.

“Sanchez has lost that hunger and it’s a shame. It’s sad because he was good.”

United’s next fixture is against Chelsea in the FA Cup on Monday night.
