Sanchez scored off a penalty rebound to open his Manchester United account

Alexis Sanchez has scored his first goal for Manchester United, entombing a rebound off his own penalty miss against Huddersfield Town. It was his first appearance at Old Trafford. The Chile international's penalty was saved in the 68th minute but he scored when the ball came back off goalkeeper Jonas Lossl.

Sanchez joined United from Arsenal during the January transfer window, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan moving to Arsenal on a straight swap.

The goal sealed United's 2-0 victory over Huddersfield in the English Premier League today. Romelu Lukaku also netted for United. This victory reduced the points gap with table leader, Manchester City, to 13 points after they were held by Burnley to a 1-1 draw.

Here is how Twitter reacted to this goal.
