Manchester United won by a single goal against Leicester in another defensive masterclass orchestrated by Erik ten Hag.
For much of the match, the Red Devils were in charge, especially in midfield, thanks to Christian Eriksen.
The Dane has been a key figure in United’s recent change of fortunes, occupying a prominent place in the midfield pivot.
Against the Foxes, Eriksen was imperious again, his contributions helping the 20-time English champions clinch all three points.
The 30-year-old’s stats are even more impressive than his display might have suggested.
He won 100% of his aerial duels.
The playmaker had an impressive 81% accuracy and 69 touches on the ball to his name.
Eriksen completed 58 passes in the 90 minutes he played.
He registered a mouth-watering 16 assists in the final third, showing his dynamism in attack.
He successfully completed seven long balls and a similar number of digs.
Based on this performance, it’s clear why the manager was determined to bring the player to Old Trafford. He’s an upgrade from what United fans had grown accustomed to and has obviously raised the bar in midfield.
Fans will hope Eriksen will maintain his fine form and help the team achieve some success by the end of the campaign.
