Manchester United won their third Premier League game under new manager Erik ten Hag, ensuring Leicester City’s difficult start to the season continued at King Power Stadium.
After 23 minutes, Jadon Sancho finished well from a ball from Marcus Rashford to keep United’s remarkable comeback alive and build on wins against 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, Leicester’s manager, also sensed the home crowd’s frustration.
Despite Casemiro coming in as a late substitution and Cristiano Ronaldo, another late replacement, coming near with an acrobatic bicycle kick, United was barely threatened.
James Maddison’s free-kick in the second half pushed United’s goalkeeper David de Gea into a fantastic save.
