Jones: Arsenal reunion an added incentive for Alexis
Manchester United defender Phil Jones believes Alexis Sanchez will comfortably handle facing his former club Arsenal for the first time, in Sunday's Premier League clash at Old Trafford.
Alexis was instrumental in the Emirates FA Cup semi-final triumph over Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley Stadium last weekend, scoring the headed opener and playing a key part in Ander Herrera's winner. Without doubt, he will be out to shine again against his former employers.
“Not so much at home. I think, if it was away at the Emirates, it might be a bit different. Going back to a place where he's very fond of, knows the pitch well and the fans well. At home, it's a little bit different but he will still get that added incentive to try to put one over on them.”
“He's been a fantastic manager,”added Jones.
“I've seen a lot of things in the press at the moment and it's true. He changed the game of football and the way teams like to play.He's managed some terrific Arsenal teams over the years, that I've grown up watching, and he should be respected and get the send-off he deserves.
