Again without the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo in the starting eleven, the Red Devils achieved a third consecutive victory with a goal from striker Jadon Sancho in the 23rd minute.

This victory allows the Red Devils to climb to fifth position with nine points, six behind the leader Arsenal, their rival next Sunday at Old Trafford.

The Foxes, off to a lousy start to the season, have only added one unit in five games to occupy the basement.

In addition, Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers seems to be following the path of Scott Parker, the first manager fired this season by Bournemouth.
