Paul Pogba is confident that Alexis Sanchez will come good at Manchester United but believes the forward may need time to adapt to his new team.

Sanchez completed a move from Arsenal to Old Trafford back in January but the 29-year-old has managed only two Premier League goals for United and is yet to find the net this term.

The Chilean was substituted for the third game in succession as the Red Devils were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Wolves.

Romelu Lukaku and Sanchez were left frustrated in attack as Joao Moutinhos wonder strike cancelled out Freds opener but Pogba has urged the former Arsenal man to remain positive.
