Paul Scholes says Mourinho needs to axe Alexis Sanchez

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes feels Alexis Sanchez needs to be dropped for their FA Cup semifinal clash with Tottenham.

Scholes believes manager Jose Mourinho should start Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial either side of Romelu Lukaku – rather than allow January signing Sanchez to take one of the wide roles.

“I think the big decision is who plays either side of (Romelu) Lukaku,” Scholes said. “I’d go (Marcus) Rashford and (Anthony) Martial but I think he’ll probably bring Sanchez back into it.

“I just don’t think his form has been good enough. I think he’s been quite predictable – we all know the talent he’s got.

“Obviously there is a magnificent player in there but at Manchester United he’s just not showing it yet. I think Martial and Rashford are a better option.”
