Alexis Sanchez failed to inspire a flat Manchester United as they were held to a 0-0 draw by San Jose Earthquakes in a friendly in California.

Sanchez returned to the side after he had joined up with the squad in the U.S. after issues over his visa had been resolved, and the Chile international came close in the first half from a free-kick.
