Alexis Sanchez flies to America to join Manchester United team-mates

Alexis Sanchez

"If he can play like today, 20 or 25 minutes in every one of these five matches and if during the season he trains with us and has a couple of occasions to play minutes with us, I don't know, depends on some cup matches, he is one of the good kids we have".

The Portuguese said, "Valencia, Smalling, Bailly and Shaw, they are probably the ones to start the season".

"He will not be ready for the start of the season but we think he'll be ready for September".

Mata came closest to scoring in the first half but saw his effort come back off the inside of the post. This was partly due to Sanchez's absence because of a denied visa, so his mood will have brightened by the Chilean's expected weekend arrival.

Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and English duo Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford were among those missing.

United finished 2nd in the Premier League last season but fell 19 points short of Champions and local rivals Manchester City, ultimately ending the year trophyless.

Trump claims ex-lawyer's phone-taping is 'perhaps illegal'
On Saturday, Trump appeared to slam both the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid and Cohen's behavior as "inconceivable". New York, where the taping reportedly took place, legally requires only one person's consent for such a recording.

Demetri Mitchell, impressive on loan at Hearts last season, threatened on the left wing and Anthony Martial, starting as the centre-forward, fired over and then forced America goalkeeper Agustin Marchesin into a diving save.

The winger, signed from Feyenoord in 2016, came on for the final 30 minutes at the University of Phoenix Stadium, but it was enough to make an impression on Mourinho.

Chong played a part in United's equaliser during the 1-1 draw with Club America and while Mourinho acknowledged that the 18-year-old is still developing, there were words of encouragement for the Dutchman.

The Spurs' defender has reportedly been at the top of Jose Mourinho's wish list for several months, but while the signings of midfielder Fred, full back Diogo Dalot and reserve keeper Lee Grant were wrapped up quickly, this one is taking a little longer.

Pereira, however, was powerless to keep out Martin's header approaching the hour-mark as United conceded the opener.

Finally, United did find an answer.
