Alexis Sanchez opened his account for Manchester United as the Red Devils eased to a 2-0 victory over Huddersfield Town at Old Trafford this afternoon.

It was a relatively poor opening forty-five as although United dominated the ball they struggled to create clear-cut opportunities and Huddersfield went in to the break all-square.

However, United finally broke the deadlock shortly after half-time as Romelu Lukaku swept home at the near post from a Juan Mata cross from the left wing in the 55th minute.

The hosts were then given the perfect chance to double their lead when Sanchez was fouled in the area just over ten minutes later. The Chilean international stepped up and saw the resulting spot kick saved but he poked home the rebound to make it 2-0 in the 68th minute and open his account for his new club.

There was no way back for Huddersfield so United eased to a 2-0 win that sees them move six points clear of third-placed Liverpool ahead of their game with Tottenham tomorrow.
