Jadon Sancho believes the confusion at Manchester United has settled under Erik ten Hag.
The England striker feels the Dutchman has brought some much-needed clarity to Old Trafford.
Sancho gave United a 1-0 win at Leicester on Thursday to move them up to fifth in the Premier League.
Sancho has played under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick since joining from Borussia Dortmund last summer but believes Ten Hag made an immediate impression after arriving from Ajax.
He said: “I would say (there is) more information, a clearer plan and what to do, particularly in some areas of the pitch. Definitive.
“We’re working on the way we play in training. Some of that you see, some of it is the intelligence of our players who create and know each other well.
“We train together more and as you saw in preseason we play well together. We play in the style the coach wants. Everyone loves it at the moment.”
Sancho’s second goal of the season sealed United’s third straight win – the first time they have won three straight Premier League games since April 2021.
It’s a rebound after losing to Brighton on the opening day before humiliating 4-0 at Brentford just three weeks ago.
“It’s been a long time (since we won three games in a row) but every week gets tough and we have to be ready and hopefully keep that momentum,” Sancho said.
“We knew we had to wake up after the Brentford game, we have three wins in a row now and we have to keep going and hopefully get more wins.
“We stuck to the game plan as the coach wanted and we work hard in every training session to keep getting better.”
United now host leaders Arsenal on Sunday, who have worked their way up to six points behind the Gunners, with Mikel Arteta’s side winning all five league games this season.
Sancho added: “They won five out of five so we know Arsenal is going to have a tough game, we have to be ready, I’m sure the lads will recover now and be ready for Sunday.”
