Sanchez’s goal helps cut gap on Manchester City
    2018-February-5  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

FORMER Gunner Alexis Sanchez netted his first Manchester United goal Saturday while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored on his Arsenal debut but was overshadowed by Aaron Ramsey’s hat trick in a 5-1 Premier League thrashing of Everton,

At Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho had called on his players to mark the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Munich air disaster that killed eight of the great United Busby Babes side by bouncing back from Wednesday’s defeat at Tottenham Hotspur.

But the hosts had to wait until 10 minutes into the second half to make the breakthrough when Romelu Lukaku volleyed home Juan Mata’s cross for his 19th of the season.

Sanchez was then given the chance to cap his home debut 21 minutes from time when he was brought down just inside the area by Michael Hefele.

And much to his relief, Sanchez tapped home the rebound after Jonas Lossl had saved his initial effort from the penalty spot.

“It was nice for Alexis Sanchez to win a match, the first at home,” added Mourinho. “It was not the goal of his dreams, but it is a goal.”

Meanwhile, Arsenal club record signing Aubameyang immediately rekindled his relationship with former Borussia Dortmund teammate Henrikh Mkhitaryan, also making his home bow, as Arsenal’s new-look front line shone, but it was Ramsey who provided much of the end product with his first career hat trick. Laurent Koscielny was also on target.

It was Sanchez’s departure that paved the way for Mkhitaryan’s move to the Emirates Stadium from Manchester United, and the Chilean also got accustomed to his new home, scoring as Jose Mourinho’s men eased past Huddersfield Town 2-0 at Old Trafford.

Victory moved United to within 13 points of runaway leaders Manchester City, which dropped points for just the fourth time in the Premier League this season in a 1-1 draw at Burnley. Johann Berg Gudmundsson’s equalizer eight minutes from time canceled out Danilo’s spectacular opener.

A renewed sense of optimism at Arsenal following not only Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan’s arrivals, but also Mesut Ozil signing a new contract, exploded in a four-goal salvo in the opening 37 minutes.

Mkhitaryan teed up Ramsey for an early tap-in before Koscielny bundled home Shkodran Mustafi’s flick-on and Ramsey’s long-range effort deflected in off Eliaquim Mangala on his Everton debut. The moment the Arsenal faithful had been waiting for came eight minutes before the break when Aubameyang chipped home Mkhitaryan’s through ball and the goal was allowed to stand despite the Gabon striker being offside when the pass was played.(SD-Agencies)
