Anthony Elanga not long before the hour mark as United gripped to their lead and Leicester pursued a balancer.

Ronaldo, who didn't pass on the club before Thursday's finish to the exchange window, came on soon after instead of Sancho and looked enthusiastic,

setting up Rashford for an opportunity in the 82nd moment and skipping an above kick past Ward's far post minutes after the fact.

"We want a decent crew and we really wanted numbers," Ten Hag said after the match.

"There are a great deal of games to cover. When we have Cristiano Ronaldo and Casemiro getting fitter it will get even better - - we want not just a group we want a crew."

Leicester had a late opportunity to even out however full-back James Justin impacted high and wide from a promising situation on the right as United gathered consecutive away triumphs.
