Sancho was the main culprit behind the success of the King Power Stadium:

Manchester United cemented their improving form in the Premier League after recording a third consecutive league success. Tonight they beat Leicester 1-0 in their 5th round match of the competition after again narrow success against Southampton last weekend.

The guests from Manchester started the match very actively and in the 11th minute, Christian Eriksen could have opened the scoring, but his shot went past the left post. However, in the 23rd minute, the “red devils” scored the decisive goal. Marcus Rashford played a through ball to Sancho in the penalty area, the winger got ahead of Ward and left him on the pitch before sending the ball into the empty net.

After the break in the 51st minute, James Maddison tried his luck directly from a free kick, but De Gea was alert and saved the shot into the top right corner. In the 83rd minute, Rashford could have decided it all with a second goal, but from an advantageous position after a mix-up, he sent his shot wide of the mark.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who appeared from the bench once again, had a chance seconds later, but he was also inaccurate. Thus, United collected 9 points from the start of the season and climbed to fifth place – a point ahead of Liverpool, while Leicester remain in last place with just one point – four losses and one draw.
