Christian Eriksen urged Manchester United to be more ruthless after the Red Devils won three straight games for the first time in 18 months.


Jadon Sancho’s goal in the 23rd minute was enough to send Leicester City to their fourth straight defeat and move United up to fifth in the Premier League.


Despite their recent success, Eriksen believes Erik ten Hag’s team still has potential for development.


‘I think it was similar to the weekend against Southampton in that we played extremely well until we scored,’ Eriksen remarked. ‘We have to keep the momentum going, we have to kill the game early, or it will be a close game till the finish line today.’


‘We’re winning 1-0, and we’re keeping it close.’ Obviously, we can do better, but I believe this is a decent start. This teaches us something.


‘I think we had a lot of things that needed to alter from the beginning.’ We accomplished this by winning. It hasn’t been pretty for 90 minutes, but we have three victories.’


Brendan Rodgers finally brought in an outfield player on Thursday, bringing in center-back Wout Faes from Reims for £15 million, but he couldn’t hide his frustration after a ‘difficult’ transfer window that left the Foxes at the bottom of the table.


‘With all due respect, we have not had the transfer market assistance that this squad has required,’ Rodgers remarked.


‘We just lack quality, and we couldn’t do much about it in the window.’ Early in the window, there were inquiries for (Harvey) Barnes and (James) Maddison. We couldn’t afford to lose too many. We were lacking in depth and quality. They are, thankfully, still alive. Ideally, we needed two center halves.’


Leicester fans booed them off, and Rodgers continued, ‘This isn’t the club it was two years ago.’ That is the truth. We haven’t added any new players in the last two windows, with the exception of one late replacement. As a result, these players require the support of their fans. It’s an extremely critical occasion.’


Ten Hag believes it is ‘too soon to declare that United has turned a corner, but he has applauded Sancho’s progress this summer.


‘We should have been ahead 2-0,’ remarked Ten Hag. ‘There was so much open space on the field.’ We had chances, and we needed to take them.


‘I think Jadon had a terrific pre-season; he needed to invest in the physical side, which he did.’


‘Now he can reap the reward, and I’m sure it’s just the beginning for him, given his ability.’


‘There’s a lot more opportunity for progress, he can be even more vital and produce with his imagination, and he can be even more significant with the defending aspect.’
