Jadon Sancho’s smooth finish gives Manchester United a 1-0 victory over Wilfred Ndidi’s Leicester City in the Premier League encounter at King Power Stadium on Thursday night.
Erik ten Hag’s side horror shows in the first two matches of the season against Brighton and Brentford are now long forgotten.
Sancho scored his second of the season in the 23rd minute as Manchester United capitalised on Leicester’s poor defensive positioning after Marcus Rashford’s sweet pass to former Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City winger rounding goalkeeper Danny Ward before slotting it home.
Red Devils’ recent revival allowed them to build on victories against Liverpool and at Southampton who is up to fifth and above Liverpool and Chelsea.
Ndidi featured for the entire duration as he played center-back, while his Super Eagles teammate Kelechi Iheanacho made a second-half substitute when coming in for Arsenal transfer Youri Tielemans in the 76th minutes.
Both Super Eagles players failed to inspire Leicester City to pick a point from the encounter at King Power Stadium as the Foxes were booed off at full-time following a lackluster performance as pressure grows on boss Brendan Rodgers with this their worst start since 1994.
Ten Hag’s Manchester United will be growing in self-belief and they can put that to the test against early pace-setters Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday.
