'Ten Hag Ball' was in full flow during Man United's win over Leicester, one-touch football at its best

'Ten Hag Ball' was in full flow during Manchester United's big win over Leicester City and fans are very, very excited.

Man United won their third straight Premier League match on Thursday as they beat Leicester 1-0 at the King Power Stadium.

Erik ten Hag is now on a three-game winning streak, having bounced back from the club's humiliating defeat at Brentford.

And his philosophy is starting to show, with his side playing some incredible one-touch football in their league victory.

In the 26th minute, Man United performed SEVEN delicate one-touch passes to evade Leicester's press and to start their own attack.

Anthony Elanga retrieved the ball and laid up Diogo Dalot, who played in Christian Eriksen who passed to Lisandro Martinez.

From there, the Argentine defender hit a glorious pass to Bruno Fernandes, who back-heeled the ball to Tyrell Malacia.

The stunning sequence continued when the Dutch left-back played it back to Eriksen who returned the ball to Martinez, who showed off his distribution once again with a brilliant pass to Fernandes.

The Portuguese midfielder then started his team's attack, capping off an incredible string of passes to turn defence into attack.

Needless to say, Man United's passage of play against Leicester sent social media wild.

Ten Hag liked what he saw from his team as they recorded their third league win of the season.

But he insists there's still room for improvement as he wants his side to be more ruthless.

Speaking after the result, he said: "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.

"I am happy with the clean sheet. The eleven on the pitch defend and attack together. You can see what we can achieve.

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

"Once Casemiro and Ronnie get fitter and fitter, we need not only a team but a squad."
