Christian Eriksen has warned his Manchester United team-mates they must put on a reckless run against Arsenal on Sunday after nearly letting Leicester City off the hook last night.

Erik ten Hag’s revamped side dominated the first 45 minutes at the King Power but were only able to prove their superiority through Jadon Sancho’s skillful goal.

Brendan Rodgers’ struggling side improved after the break and United were indebted to goalkeeper David de Gea, who kept the lead as the Red Devils celebrated their third straight win.

United host Arsenal at Old Trafford this weekend in what will be a real test of their recent resurgence and Eriksen knows the Gunners won’t let his side off the hook like the Foxes.

“Yes, I think from the start we had to change a lot of things and we achieved that with the win,” said Eriksen.

“It wasn’t nice for 90 minutes, but we have three wins. I think we’re winning 1-0 at the moment and we’re keeping it tight.

“Of course we want to do better, but it’s a good start, we can take something from it and the three points are the most important thing.

“I think we should have done that [killed the game], it was similar to Southampton. We played very well until we scored.

“We have to keep the momentum, we have to end the game early, otherwise it will be a close game like today.

“From now on the games just keep coming, from Thursday to Sunday, we’re looking good and we’re going to get the points.”
