Alexis Sanchez and his Manchester United team-mates have arrived at their hotel prior to their FA Cup fourth round tie against Yeovil and immediately went for a stretch in the car park.

The Chilean attacker is pictured in the club's tracksuit outside The Hollies Hotel as he made his way into the three star establishment.

Sanchez completed his high profile move to Old Trafford earlier this week and this could be the strongest sign yet that boss Jose Mourinho is set to hand his new man his debut on Friday night.
