In order to ensure that Leicester City’s rocky start to the season didn’t end at King Power Stadium, Manchester United rolled to their third straight Premier League victory under new manager Erik ten Hag.
After 23 minutes, Jadon Sancho finished expertly from a ball from Marcus Rashford to keep United’s remarkable comeback alive and build on wins over Southampton and Liverpool away from home.
In contrast to a disorganized Leicester team still searching for their first league victory of the year, United maintained a considerable amount of control. Brendan Rodgers, the manager of Leicester, too sensed the frustration of the home crowd.
In the second half, visiting keeper David de Gea was forced into a fine save from James Maddison’s free kick, but United were rarely troubled, with Casemiro coming on as a substitute and Cristiano Ronaldo, another late replacement, coming close with an acrobatic bicycle kick.
