United battle past Huddersfield

After a tough-tackling first half, Lukaku sent United on their way in the 55th minute before Sanchez scored his maiden United goal on his home debut to finish off the determined visitors.

Lingard had the game’s first real chance after eight minutes after Sanchez did well to put him through on goal but his tame left-foot shot was comfortably saved by Jonas Lossl.

The game picked up an extra edge after 19 minutes when United youngster Scott McTominay was clattered in an aerial challenge by Terence Kongolo inside the Huddersfield box.

Sanchez dusted himself down and although his spot-kick was saved, he bundled home the rebound to grab United’s second and ensure Huddersfield would fall into the relegation zone for the first time this season.
