For all of the talk about the ways in which Erik ten Hag may or may not revolutionise Manchester United, for now it seems the team are quite happy grinding out results, as they recorded a third straight Premier League victory for the first time since before last Christmas.
The performance was largely as gutsy as it was pretty but Jadon Sancho’s superbly taken first-half strike was enough to secure United successive away wins for the first time since last September. Judging by the way Diogo Dalot celebrated a sliding tackle that prevented Harvey Barnes from centring the ball and won United a goal-kick with 20 minutes to go, the players recognise the value of a resilience that eluded them at the start of this season. Dalot bumped chests with Lisandro Martínez before high-fiving Raphaël Varane and Scott McTominay.
