Alexis Sanchez scored his first goal for Manchester United on Saturday as the Red Devils cruised to a 2-0 win over Huddersfield.
It was the first time Sanchez will be playing at Old Trafford as a United player and he ensured that he marked the moment with a goal.
United dominated possession throughout against the relegation-threatened visitors, but it took until the 55th minute for them to find the breakthrough courtesy of a Romelu Lukaku strike.
Sanchez then added a second on a comfortable afternoon for the home side, tucking home a rebound after seeing his initial penalty saved by Huddersfield keeper Jonas Lossl.
