Manchester United defeated Leicester City tonight at the King Power Stadium to get their third win in a row in the Premier League. The Red Devils’ manager talked to BT Sport after the game, where he talked about the changes the team has been doing in the last couple of games where they have turned the situation around.

He praised the sacrifice of his team in transitions: “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’m happy with the clean sheet. The eleven players on the pitch defend and attack together. You can see what we can achieve”, he told BT Sport.

He scored many in pre-season and put a low investment in, now he is getting his rewards”, he told BT Sport.

Finally, the Dutch manager was asked about their next Premier League fixture against Arsenal: “That’s the real test for us, we are looking forward to it. We have to be good, we know that and it is a good test to see where we are”. However, when he was asked about Antony possibly making his debut against them, he said: “We will see on Sunday”.
