Sanchez was absent as the 20-man travelling squad made the trip to the south coast.

Anthony Martial had been linked with a move to Chelsea or Tottenham but the France global is determined to stay and fight for his place at Old Trafford.

They are joined by Anthony Martial, who makes his first start of the campaign after a summer where his future was constantly in the air and has a huge chance to move ahead of Marcus Rashford in the left-wing pecking order.

Canada deliberately sidelined from latest NAFTA talks, Trump suggests
Mexico's new president, Andrés Manuel Lopez Obrador, was elected in July and takes the oath of office december 1. And Trump again aimed a jibe at Canada, saying "Their tariffs are too high".

"We know Anthony well and you can expect always good things from him", Jose Mourinho told the club's official website. "He can find that stability that makes great players, we try to help [him] and he's working well".

Mourinho is blessed with a star-studded attack going into the new season and faces a dilemma, with Sanchez, Martial and Rashford all desperate to play in the same position.

'Marcus would be obviously an important option to play on the left but we believe that maybe Lukaku can not play for 90 minutes so to start with both - one striker and one on the left - then later you need a fresh player to replace Lukaku and we wouldn't have [one]. But we believe that Lukaku cannot play 90 minutes. "So start with one striker and one on the left so the decision was to protect Marcus for that situation to play later and give Martial the opportunity to play".
