Alexis Sanchez makes this pitch-invading kid’s day by picking him up during goal celebration 

The No 7 celebrated United's second goal with a young fan

Following one rather controversial VAR decision, Man United eventually went 2-0 up against Huddersfield. 

Romelu Lukaku netted his second goal of the game thanks to a lovely defence-splitting pass from Alexis Sanchez, finishing off a lovely counter-attack.

And as United celebrated the goal in front of the away fans, you might’ve noticed a small squad of pitch-invaders running towards the players to celebrate.

A couple of kids and an older fella hugged and cheered with the stars, in what was quite a nice little moment to be fair.

Although, at one point, Lukaku looks a little over-whelmed by the amount of people seemingly let loose onto the pitch.



But top marks goes to Sanchez, who made this young fan’s day by picking him up and carrying him to celebrate with his heroes.

Great stuff.

Although, from a distance, it looks almost as if Sanchez is struggling to lift the kid, considering he’s not much taller than him.

But then you remember he’s build like a ton of bricks.


United won the game 2-0, but the headlines will be made by the incredibly bizarre VAR decision at the end of the first-half, when Juan Mata saw his effort chalked off by referee Kevin Friend thanks to a seemingly wobbly line.
