Speaking about his experiences so far as a Manchester United player, Sanchez said: "It is very different here. I think United is a club with more history and we want to win trophies next year.

"We need to keep progressing. United is a big club, to which I am still adapting and I am looking forward to giving everything I've got next year and aiming to win everything there is to win."

Sanchez while speaking of his form any time he plays at Wembly siad "The truth is that I score every time I play at Wembley.

"I have won several trophies there with my national team and with Arsenal.

"With Chile, I also scored two goals and that means a lot to me. Wembley brings me good luck.
