Manchester United defeated Leicester City 1 – 0 in the Premier League on Thursday.
Man United make it three wins in a row as Jadon Sancho’s early strike seals a 1-0 win and moves Erik ten Hag’s team up to fifth in the table, while Brendan Rodgers’ side remains at the bottom.
Sancho had shown great poise in rounding Leicester goalkeeper Danny Ward. After 23 minutes, Jadon Sancho’s smooth finish from Marcus Rashford’s pass maintained United’s recent revival and allowed them to build on victories over Liverpool and Southampton. United remained largely in control against an out-of-sorts Leicester, who are still looking for their first league win of the season and who, along with manager Brendan Rodgers, sensed the home fans’ impatience.
After the first-half break, Leicester seemed to need to respond, and James Maddison came close. However, United made late changes to close the game out, bringing in Casemiro and Cristiano Ronaldo.
