Alexis Sanchez has warned Chelsea that he “scores every time I play at Wembley” ahead of Manchester United’s FA Cup final at the national stadium.
Former Arsenal forward Sanchez helped United reach the showpiece final by starting a comeback against Tottenham last weekend – with Ander Herrera netting the winner.
Sanchez has also notched in the 2015 semi-final and finals along with last season’s events at Wembley – both for the Gunners – to take his tally at the stadium to eight.
And the Chilean insists despite not finding the goal during United’s 2-0 Premier League defeat to Spurs at Wembley in January, the Blues need to be wary of his record at the ground.
Sanchez has netted eight goals in as many games at Wembley
“The truth is that I score every time I play at Wembley,” Sanchez told MUTV. “I have won several trophies there with my national team and with Arsenal. With Chile, I also scored two goals and that means a lot to me.
“Wembley brings me good luck.
“We are very happy to have reached the final. I think Saturday’s match was the most perfect one since I joined United, and that makes me very happy for what lies ahead.”
Sanchez has admitted he is still getting to grips with life at United but is confident he is close to hitting his best form.
Sanchez endured a tough start to his United career following his January switch from Arsenal and struggled to produce the form that made him one of Europe’s most sought-after players.
But Sanchez has been impressive in recent weeks, turning in match-winning displays against Manchester City in United’s 3-2 derby win and Tottenham, when he scored and set up the other as Mourinho’s side won 2-1 to reach the FA Cup final.
“It is very different here,” said Sanchez. “I think United is a club with more history and we want to win trophies next year.
“We need to keep progressing; United is a big club, to which I am still adapting, and I am looking forward to giving everything I’ve got next year and aiming to win everything there is to win.”
