EPL: Phil Jones speaks on Alexis Sanchez facing Arsene Wenger’s men at Old Trafford


Manchester United star, Phil Jones has stated that fellow team-mate, Alexis Sanchez, will be eager to shine against Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal in Sunday’s Premier League clash at Old Trafford.

Jones believes Sanchez, who joined the Red Devils from Arsenal during January’s transfer window in a swap deal that saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan move to the Emirates, will be motivated when he faces Wenger’s men.

Asked if Sanchez will be affected by lining up against his old side, Jones told MUTV: “Not so much at home. I think, if it was away at the Emirates, it might be a bit different. Going back to a place where he’s very fond of, knows the pitch well and the fans well.

“So, at home, it’s a little bit different but he will still get that added incentive to try to put one over on them.”

Jones called for a warm reception for Wenger, who has clashed with United manager, Jose Mourinho in the past.

United are currently occupying the second position of the Premier League table with 74 points from 34 games.
