Alexis Sanchez missed drugs test 'understandable', says Jose Mourinho

Arsenal have announced the signing of Manchester United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Debutant Alexis Sanchez helped steer Manchester United into the FA Cup fifth round with two assists as Jose Mourinho's men strolled past Yeovil 4-0.

The Chile global quickly made an impact, setting up goals for Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera as United comfortably defeated the League Two side.

Jose Mourinho has signed an extension to his contract at Manchester United in a move that sees him commit his future to the Old Trafford club until at least 2020, with an option for a further year.

"We have a fantastic group of attacking players and he is another one with more maturity and experience".

Manchester United will make the trip to Wembley on Wednesday night when Sanchez could line up against his former club's bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur. He said, "I am really honoured and proud to be Manchester United manager". If he gets man of the match in that one, then he's in business.

The 29-year-old Chile forward's transfer from Arsenal has proved one of the highest-profile deals of the January transfer window.

Meanwhile much-vaunted efforts to reach a bilateral trade deal are on hold until Britain actually leaves the EU. President Donald Trump said Thursday there will be "tremendous increase" in United Kingdom -U.S. trade.

"I'm not really surprised no", Le Tissier said of the new contract. Arsene Wenger was a big fan of the Armenian playmaker and didn't need any second invitations to sanction the deal when the prospect of a desired player was dangling right in front of him.

If Sanchez retains this left-sided role, it is probably Anthony Martial who has most to lose; but there is a suspicion that Mourinho may choose to deploy him more centrally in the coming weeks and months.

Jesse Lingard and Romelu Lukaku added late goals in southwest England at modest Huish Park, which has a capacity below 10,000.

"I think he needed to play, we spoke and he needed to play".

"I think Arsenal were very honest in the way they approached the situation", said Mourinho, of Sanchez's missed drugs test.

"So to put some water on the fire, Cristiano is the kind of player every manager and club wants but one that Zidane and Real Madrid have, that's my feeling".
