I said he's a passenger in defense which he is. If you want to say he doesn't have to help out in defense like those you mentioned, id agree if we got that attacking output.Yeah but you said he was doing nothing or something, he is, he is attacking, if we have 7 players who can contain readings attacks, it gives the front 3 more chance to purely attack?
Ronaldo didn't defend, ronaldinho didn't defend, Messi doesn't. A lot of attackers in front 3s don't defend. Salah is a good example for Liverpool.
To say Sanchez needs to work harder is madness. Workrate is one thing you cannot fault Sanchez on. He needs to play in a fluent team. He would do better with runners around him on the same wave length like a Lingard, Martial or Rashford. Pairing him with a lumbering (at the moment) Lukaku is not working.Sanchez hardly press for the ball. He will be the weak link in the pressing game that we play should he be in the first team. He needs to work harder.
Not really seeing that countless times already he’s been the closest person that could get at someone and he hasn’t even broken in to a fast jog. That should be the minimum expected of any player, he just looks like he is half arsing it.It looks like he's trying to get stuck in, it's not really his speciality to get tackles in though, he's not a no.6.
