LEICESTER 0-1 MAN UTD: Jadon Sancho’s goal gave Manchester United their third successive Premier League win under Erik ten Hag, as under-fire Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers faces more talk of the sack
Manchester United continued their revival with a third consecutive victory after Jadon Sancho struck the only goal to keep winless Leicester bottom of the Premier League.
The horror shows of last month against Brighton and Brentford are now long forgotten for Erik ten Hag’s side, who are up to fifth and above Liverpool and Chelsea.
Sancho scored his second of the season in the 23rd minute as United capitalised on Leicester’s poor defensive positioning with the winger rounding goalkeeper Danny Ward from Marcus Rashford’s through ball.
Leicester were booed off at full-time following a lackluster performance as pressure grows on boss Brendan Rodgers with this their worst start since 1994.
Leicester travel to Brighton on Sunday; kick-off 2pm. Manchester United later host Arsenal on Super Sunday; kick-off 4.30pm.
