José Mourinho confirmed in his press conference on Friday afternoon that new signing Alexis Sánchez will make his Manchester United debut against Yeovil Town on Friday night in the FA Cup fourth round.

The Red Devils will hope to avoid a giant killing at Huish Park, and fielding the Chilean superstar, signed earlier this week from Arsenal in a deal which saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan move to the Emirates, should help guard against any such embarrassment.

Aside from Sánchez, United will likely send out an XI made up of a mixture of regular starters and squad players needing game time.
