Man Utd’s 26th minute football against Leicester was so good it went viral

Manchester United made it three wins in a row on Thursday night.

Erik ten Hag’s reign got off to the worst possible start with back-to-back defeats against Brighton and Brentford, but since that humiliating 4-0 loss at Brentford, the Red Devils have looked like a totally different team.

United went on to record a surprising 2-1 victory over their rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford before turning in a professional performance at Southampton, recording a 1-0 win and keeping his first clean sheet of the campaign.

And United’s traveling supporters enjoyed a similar performance against city ​​of leicester at King Power Stadium.

Jadon Sancho scored the only goal of the game midway through the first half as Man Utd moved up to fifth place in the Premier League table.

What did Ten Hag say after Leicester 0-1 Man Utd?

“Again [we had] good team spirit, we had 11 players on the field who fought each other”, said Ten Hag after the match, for United official website.

“I’m happy with the clean sheet. When our 11 are on the pitch, we defend together and attack together.”

The work that Ten Hag and his backroom staff are doing on the training pitch with a group of players that was completely lacking in confidence is clearly having the desired effect.

Manchester United’s brilliant passing move against Leicester

A striking passage of play from the first half, shortly after Sancho’s goal, shows that United are certainly heading in the right direction under their Dutch manager.

In the 26th minute of the match, the Leicester players struggled to win the ball high up the pitch, but were unable to get close to their opponents, who buzzed with speed and precision.

Watch out for the Bruno Fernandes movie and the Tyrell Malacia doll.

If Christian Eriksen’s shot had hit the back of the net, we would be talking about one of the goals of the season.

But don’t take anything away from United’s exquisite passing move that surely delighted Ten Hag.

Let’s take a look at some of the reactions to the clip:

Will Man Utd beat Arsenal?

United now prepare to face Arsenal, who currently hold pole position in the table thanks to five consecutive wins.

But Ten Hag’s men will firmly believe they have what it takes to end the Gunners’ winning streak.
