Jadon Sancho’s first-half goal was enough to give Manchester United its third-straight win, a 1-0 defeat of struggling Leicester City at King Power Stadium on Thursday.

The Red Devils stretched their clean-sheet run to 189 minutes, as David De Gea was only asked to make two saves and claimed a pair of crosses.

Man United had less than 50% of the ball and took eight of the game’s 15 shots, though The Red Devils move into fifth place on nine points through five games.

That’s 14 spots and eight more points than Leicester City, who will know it got a little fortunate not to concede more goals late.

Manchester United started the season 0-2, allowing six goals over two games to two teams who are good but not world beaters (yet!)

Erik ten Hag then removed his captain Harry Maguire, trusting new signing Lisandro Martinez to play alongside Raphael Varane

It was a brave move but one he simply had to make at the time (Cristiano Ronaldo and Luke Shaw also lost their places).

There were chances late, with James Justin and James Maddison failing to take half chances, but Ten Hag will be happy with the zeroes.

Since the switch, United has allowed one goal over 270 minutes and it was scored by Mohamed Salah.
