VIDEO: Alexis Sanchez begins early Manchester United rout with pinpoint flick


Arsenal has torched the Manchester United defense for a huge early lead, and it all started with just five minutes gone by.

Hector Bellerin burst down the right, and while the initial cross was cleared, it came back to Mesut Ozil who served up a ball for Alexis Sanchez to tap in after beating Matteo Darmian to the near post.

The goal is the first of three that the Gunners have scored on United’s back line, all coming inside the opening 20 minutes. Sanchez ended up with a second on a cracking strike that burned the top corner of David De Gea‘s goal.

Manchester United has never allowed four goals in a single half in Premier League play. Can the Gunners break that streak?
