Following the opener, the Roscommon side found proceedings much easier with a 3-1 victory over Meelickmore before heavy victories over Killinmumery NS and Woodford NS.

Sanchez delivered when it was most needed to show that class is permanent

first_imgALEXIS SANCHEZ needed this. By all rights, he should not have been playing.He had been part of the diabolical performance against West Brom after which Jose Mourinho made it clear Wembley places were up for grabs.6 Manchester United’s under pressure striker Alexis Sanchez bags the priceless equaliser that might just re-ignite his careerCredit: AFP or licensorsMarcus Rashford and, to a lesser extent, Anthony Martial answered the call in midweek against Bournemouth and must have been bemused, therefore, to be left on the bench.Sanchez was in.Had the name and the money he earns usurped form?Was Mourinho avoiding another Paul Pogba situation — i.e. why is the big name dropped? Is there a problem? Has it been a mistake to buy him? Why can’t he get the best out of him?6 Many thought Alexis Sanchz should have been dropped – but instead he netted arguably the most crucial goal of his seasonCredit: Getty – Contributor6 Tottenham defender Kieran Trippier struggles to tame Chilean Alexis SanchezCredit: PA:Press AssociationSo the pressure was really on the Chilean to produce and how he did so with a goal and assist that takes Manchester United to another Cup final.Form maybe temporary but class is permanent and this was a top-class display from Sanchez.SACK, BACK AND CRAIC Arsene Wenger smiles with Arsenal stars as they welcome him back to trainingIt was full of heart, full of tenacity.When he was subbed in the final minute of injury time he left the pitch covered in mud and sweat, his chest heaving with the effort he had put in.The United end rose as one to acclaim him.The manager was ready with a handshake. Job done.Sanchez had not let the boss down, nor the fans that made the red half of this stadium a cacophony of noise from the moment he nodded United back into the game in the 24th minute.What a header it was, too, as he directed the ball back across Michel Vorm, leaning backwards in mid-air.He now has eight goals in eight games for club and country at Wembley.And in the 62nd minute, there he was working down that left flank and rolling the ball across for Ander Herrera’s winner, too.Dele Alli and Alexis Sanchez score the openers in Manchester United vs Tottenham in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley In injury time it was Sanchez winning the ball on the top of his own box and charging up to halfway where he won a throw-in to waste valuable seconds.The statistics will tell you that Sanchez loses the ball a lot.Part of the reason for that is he demands it so much.He wants it all the time, no matter where he is on the pitch, and berates team-mates who do not give it to him.6 Man Utd striker Alexis Sanchez tangles with Spurs midfielder Eric DierCredit: Alamy Live NewsWhen he does lose it, he just wants it again and again and is always available to have it.True, Sanchez had hardly had the dramatic impact on this side since his New Year switch from Arsenal that United fans had hoped for.But Mourinho constantly points to the fact that it is always  difficult for a mid-term addition to integrate.So you can understand why he has not always been on the same wavelength as his team-mates.But the evidence of yesterday is that things can only get better.Sanchez is going to be a big part of the next chapter at this club. For any other club, an FA Cup, League Cup, Europa League, Community Shield and now another FA Cup final would show real signs of progress over the space of three seasons.Sir Alex Ferguson raised the bar so high, however, that this is considered barely enough.After all, it was not that long ago that United fans were in  this stadium for a Champions League final.But times have changed and Sir Alex now looks on from the stands on these occasions.Manchester United 2-1 Tottenham: Red Devils comeback thanks to Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera as they reach FA Cup final This is the Mourinho era and, despite his detractors, he is the man United needed.The man to stabilise a club that had fallen dramatically from their perch.No, it is not the football from the glory days under Fergie but neither is it as bad as some would have you believe.Since late February, United have beaten all four teams  closest to them in the league in Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and now Spurs.6 Alexis Sanchez is saluted by his Manchester United manager Jose MourinhoCredit: PA:Empics SportMOST READ IN FOOTBALLRETRACING STEPSJack Charlton’s granddaughter Emma Wilkinson ‘would love’ to visit IrelandROY RAGEFurious Roy Keane launched foul-mouthed rant at Pique over Fabregas friendshipPicturedTOP FORMBrazil icon Ronaldo soaks up sun with partner Celina Locks on yacht in FormenteraPicturedON THE PAOLPaolo Maldini shows off shredded physique at 52 while on holiday with wifeLive BlogUNITED LATESTMan Utd transfer news LIVE: All the gossip and updates from Old TraffordExclusiveLOCK CLOWNPaul Scholes flouts local lockdown rules by throwing huge 7-hour birthday bashPicturedMADD FOR ITPrem aces Dele, Maddison & Grealish enjoy hard-earned break in sun-soaked IbizaLive BlogBLUES NEWSChelsea transfer news LIVE: Havertz deal LATEST, Willian move updatesLive Bloggunners newsArsenal transfer news LIVE – Latest updates from the EmiratesMISS-RON IMPOSSIBLERonaldo LOSES Golden Boot race after axe from Juve squad for final gameIt is daft performances like those against Sevilla and West Brom, away at Huddersfield and Newcastle that they need to get rid of.Do that and they are a major force once again.There is no lack of quality in this squad and there will be more players coming this  summer to join Sanchez and Co, you can be sure of that.The Chilean threw his shirt from the dugout to a fan just before the final whistle.CLAIM YOUR FREE £30 BET Check out this new sign up offer from Sun BetsA real keepsake for someone to remember a performance from a player who hauled United back and then beyond Tottenham.A Tottenham who have had plenty of plaudits while holes have been picked in this United outfit.Mourinho constantly plugs those.With finals, with trophies and with players who can do what Sanchez did at Wembley yesterday.6 Another view of Manchester United’s Wembley equaliser from Alexis SanchezCredit: EPAA top strike from Ander Herrera helps Manchester United reach the FA Cup final and grabs him a Gillette Precision Play awardlast_img read more

It’s clear that today I don’t know if the rest of the teams are happy with that decision.“Personally I think it’s not right.
