2. Alexis Sanchez (Manchester United)

In January 2018, Alexis Sanchez made the controversial move from Arsenal to Manchester United. Since then, he has failed to re-discover the form that once placed him among the Premier League’s elite footballers.
A return of 3 goals and 5 assists in the league is hardly befitting of a player of Sanchez’s quality. Add to that the astronomical wages he is being paid and United could be forgiven to think if they got the better end of the bargain.

Manuel Neuer spent the majority of last season on the sidelines with a foot injury. The injury kept him out of the game for more than a year and when he made his return, it seemed that the time out of the game had taken its toll.
At the World Cup, Neuer looked rusty and shambolic in his decision making. His position as a left winger when conceding to South Korea driving the point home emphatically.
Fast forward to this season and the same problems persist. Neuer re-defined the “sweeper keeper” role with his overwhelming technical ability. However, this season, he has been guilty of over-playing, which has put an already dodgy defence under more strife.
