When Alexis Sánchez arrived at Manchester United in January it was widely believed the Red Devils had pulled off a transfer masterstroke.

Not only had they directly weakened Arsenal but they also beat off competition from Manchester City in the race to sign the talented Chilean.

But nine months on and United’s decision to make Sánchez the best paid in Premier League history has been questioned. The 29-year-old has struggled for form at Old Trafford and has scored just four goals in 25 appearances.

And with Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford waiting in the wings, should Sánchez still be a regular starter for the Red Devils?

That’s the question we asked United fans when their side took on Watford last month. As always opinions were split, but the majority felt it was worth persevering with the former Barcelona star.

But should Mourinho think the same? We dived into the data to find out what’s gone wrong for Sánchez at Old Trafford and whether it’s time for him to be taken out of the starting XI for a prolonged period.
