Yeovil aim dig at Alexis Sanchez after Manchester United winger awarded Man of the Match award in FA Cup clash

YEOVIL had a dig at the FA after they awarded the man of the match award to Alexis Sanchez.

The Chilean made his Manchester United debut in the FA Cup fourth-round clash after joining from Arsenal earlier in the week.

But the League Two club took issue with the fact Sanchez was given the award despite his two assists in the 4-0 win.

Yeovil tweeted: "#Alexis7 is announced as man of the match. Not sure who picked it but that's a commercially-driven decision if ever there was one! #MUFC #YTFC."

The Yeovil fans also seemed to take a disliking to the £505,000-a-week star as they booed him from the first whistle.

Sanchez grew into the game at Hueish Park and eventually set up Marcus Rashford for the opener and Ander Herrera after the break.

He was then substituted for Jesse Lingard 72 minutes in before the Englishman slotted in a third to put the game beyond Yeovil.

Romelu Lukaku, who also came on as a second-half sub, then volleyed in a fourth in injury time to send United into the hat for the fifth round.

The victory was also sweet for boss Jose Mourinho as it came on his 55th birthday and on his 100th match in charge of the Red Devils.

Yeovil might be upset with Sanchez winning the MOTM award, but can take some positives with the £144,000 in TV revenue they made from the clash.
