By beating Leicester City 1-0, Manchester United won its third straight game.
Erik ten Hag used the same starting lineup that had won against Liverpool and Southampton.
Harry Maguire, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Casemiro again had to settle for a spot on the bench.
In the first half, United dominated because they moved the ball much faster and with an attack-minded mindset.
Marcus Rashford sent a skillful pass to Jadon Sancho, who then went around the goalkeeper and put the ball back in the net.
It was a real team goal because Diogo Dalot and Bruno Fernandes were crucial in setting the goal.
In the second half, Leicester did fight back hard.
David de Gea made a great save on a set piece from James Maddison.
James Justin had an excellent chance to tie the game during extra time, but his shot went over the crossbar.
Here are three things to talk about from this fight.
Another victory based on good defense
Erik ten Hag used to play defense himself, so he knows how important it is to keep a clean sheet.
United has kept two clean sheets in a row, which makes this win even better.
For the third straight game, the back four played very well.
Every time someone made a tackle, they cheered as if they had scored a goal.
Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez gave another gritty and determined performance.
Diogo Dalot was running up and down the right side of the field, helping his team defend and attack.
Early in the game, He warned him, but he kept his cool while defending against Harvey Barnes, who was very good.
The Dutchman’s rule seems to be pretty straightforward. You can’t lose if you don’t let the other team score.
Leicester City is having trouble.
Brendan Rodgers could not have had a worse start to this season.
He lost his best defender and the best goalkeeper in the summer, but he didn’t replace them with anyone better.
This has made the King Power stadium feel a little sad.
They are at the bottom of the league table with only one point after five games.
Jamie Vardy seems like a shadow of the person he used to be.
Youri Tielemans doesn’t seem settled after all the talk about him moving teams in the past two months.
Rodgers needs to devise a quick way to get his team back on track.
If he doesn’t leave, the people who want him to leave will get louder.
With the transfer window closed, his team should be more stable.
A step forward for Jadon Sancho.
Sancho finished his shot well and it ended up being the game-winning goal.
It was his second goal for United this season. His first one came two weeks ago against Liverpool.
The new manager is making things more straightforward for the 22-year-old player.
He had his first preseason with the Red Devils. He missed last year’s because he moved to Old Trafford at the last minute.
Sancho looks much better now that he has worked hard during the preseason.
He isn’t at his best yet, but his performances are getting better is a good sign for the rest of the season.
When they play Arsenal, the team at the top of the table, United will face a tough test.
