United hit four as Sanchez grabs man of the match on debut

Marcus Rashford, Ander Herrera, Jesse Lingard and Romelu Lukaku gave Man Utd a 4-0 win at Yeovil in the FA Cup fourth round on Friday night as Alexis Sanchez made his debut.

Yeovil asked questions early on, but United were gifted a lead just before half-time as Rashford capitalised on a defensive mix-up in the hosts’ penalty area to turn home with ease (41).

Herrera made it 2-0 in the second half, finding the far corner from the left of the box after being fed by Sanchez, who was heavily involved at Huish Park and lasted 71 minutes.

Two late goals wrapped it up for the visitors through Lingard’s fine solo strike (89) and Lukaku’s close-range finish (90+3). The draw for the fifth round of the FA Cup will be made on Monday evening.

Yeovil started on the front foot and were nearly ahead early on through Jordan Green, but Sergio Romero beat away his left-footed effort from an angle 12 yards out, while Omar Sowunmi headed straight at Romero unmarked in the box from a free-kick.

Scott McTominay saw a low effort turned away by Artur Krysiak, but the Polish goalkeeper was then involved in a defensive mix-up as United were gifted a 41st-minute lead.

After Sanchez’s through ball ran through to the goalkeeper as Tom James looked to usher Rashford out, both Yeovil players left the ball for each other and invited the England forward to swoop in to poke into the net.
