Manchester United fans took to social media to slam a star after an FA Cup victory over Brighton.
Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United side beat Brighton 2-0 but fans were still unhappy with Alexis Sanchez.
The outbreak of abuse for Sanchez from Man United fans is even more surprising given the fact that the Chilean did not feature for a single minute for Jose Mourinho’s side.
It was actually what Sanchez did not do rather than what he did do that infuriated Man United fans tonight.
The United forwarded was left out of Mourinho’s starting line-up for the first time since signing from Arsenal in the summer.
Sanchez completed a move from Arsenal to Man United in January with Henrikh Mkhitaryan moving in the opposite direction as part of the deal.
United however looked comfortable and efficient with both Sanchez and Paul Pogba on the bench. Neither of the stars featured at all for the Red Devils.
Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring for United in the first-half and Nemanja Matic then sealed the victory by doubling the lead in the final ten minutes.
United fans took to social media to express that United were better as a team without Sanchez and even suggested that the Chilean is useless.
Sanchez 11th game tonight. Has been absolutely abysmal in 10 of them 11 games. Big performance is needed tonight or I just don’t see how Jose can justify starting him again for a while. Totally useless since he signed.

The only thing Sanchez knows is to be hogging the fucking ball, United are actually playing better without him.
