Manchester United news: Jadon Sancho says clarity from Erik ten Hag is driving improvement

Jadon Sancho scored the winning goal against Leicester City on Thursday night as Manchester United powered to their third straight Premier League victory.

The forward has enjoyed a strong start to his campaign and has praised manager Erik ten Hag for bringing some much-needed clarity to Old Trafford. 

Sancho has played under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick since joining from Borussia Dortmund last summer but thinks Ten Hag has made an instant impact after his arrival from Ajax.

He said: "I would say (there's) more information, a more clear plan and what to do, especially in some areas of the pitch. Definitely.

"The style of play in training is what we're working on. Some of that you see, some of it is the intelligence of our players, creating and knowing each other well.

"We're training more together and as you saw from pre-season, we're playing well together. We're playing in the style which the manager wants. Everyone is loving it at the moment."

United now welcome leaders Arsenal on Sunday having moved to within six points of the Gunners with Mikel Arteta's side having won all five league games this term.

Sancho said: "They've won five out of five so we know Arsenal is going to be a tough game, we're going to have to be ready, I'm sure the boys will recover now and be ready for Sunday."

He added: "It is a long time (since winning three straight games), but every week is going to be tough and we have to be ready and hopefully keep up this momentum," said Sancho.

"We knew we had to wake up after the Brentford game, we've got three wins in a row now and we have to keep this up and hopefully keep getting some more wins.

"We stuck to the game plan as the manager wanted and in every training session we're working hard to get better and better."
