Manchester United beat Leicester City for third win in a row

Jadon Sancho scored the game's lone goal as Manchester United beat Leicester City 1-0 on Thursday at the King Power Stadium for their third win in a row.

United hit Leicester on a quick counter-attack midway through the first half as Marcus Rashford threaded the ball through the hosts' backline to Sancho

who rounded goalkeeper Danny Ward with his first touch and rolled the ball into an empty net with his second to finish the move.

James Maddison went close for Leicester with a superb free kick which brought an excellent save from United's David De Gea,

but the home side struggled to create chances.

The opener seemed to boost the visitors' confidence and they pushed forward throughout the remainder of the opening 45 minutes. 

No second goal came and United took their 1-0 lead into the break.
