The 29-year-old has failed to live up to expectations following his transfer from Arsenal back in January and has failed to find the net this season so far.

But he received a vote of confidence from Pogba, the French midfielder backing Sanchez to replicate some of the sparkling form of his Arsenal days.

‘What you have to know about Alexis is he is a hard worker,’ Pogba said. ‘He trains very well, he always tries to help the team, talks with the team and everything. He will get used to it.

‘When you play a long time with another team and you play different football in that other team you have some kind of adaptation that you have to have.

‘It’s not that he is playing bad. We know that Alexis Sanchez can bring a lot and I’m sure he will. I’m sure he will.

‘But he’s not playing bad and he keeps being positive, so that’s the good thing we have to think about.’ 

United were second-best for long spells against Wolves despite taking a first-half lead through their Brazilian midfielder Fred.

Wolves claimed a deserved point thanks to Joao Moutinho’s second-half stunner and United find themselves eight points behind leaders Liverpool in only the second month of the season.

The Reds now turn their attention to the EFL Cup with a home third round tie against Derby County this Tuesday before travelling to West Ham in the Premier League next weekend.
