Erik ten Hag takes a sly dig at Manchester United players after Leicester win

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has accused his players of not being ‘ruthless’ against Leicester City.

Man United secured their third Premier League win in a row following a tight 1-0 win over Leicester at King Power Stadium.

Jadon Sancho scored the match-winning goal early in the first half and that proves United’s attacking players haven’t done much in their recent games.

United won Southampton by a single goal to nil and repeated the same win against the Foxes.

Erik ten Hag believes his side needs to be more ruthless in order to put the game to bed early in the game but he was happy with the win.

“A step forward. We are happy with that and again a good team spirit and eleven players on the pitch fighting for each other,” Ten Hag told BBC.

“A step forward. We are happy with that and again a good team spirit and eleven players on the pitch fighting for each other.

“We can be dangerous in the transition moments. There were many spaces in the second half but did not explore them that well. We should have scored a second goal.”

“We have to be more [ruthless]. There is room for improvement.”

Manchester United have kept two clean sheets in a row against Southampton and Leicester City and the Dutchman said he’s pleased with that.

“I am happy with the clean sheet. The XI on the pitch defend and attack together. You can see what we can achieve,” he added.
