's dangerous weapons. Sancho was brilliant against  Sheriff Tiraspol, scoring a well-taken goal by Eriksen. Since Antony's £85million signing, the 22-year-old has shifted to the left wing and was a constant threat to Sheriff on Thursday.

Ten Hag had his sayings on the match against Sheriff: "After the first 10 minutes we found our formation, we were more secure, we had some good movements on the ball in the middle of the park, we kept the ball + in right moments we split up, we make a great goal with 

Jadon Sancho

. We did that more this season, like Arsenal, many players involved in making a goal. So if we can keep this going, more quanity of such occasions, we are in a good way."

"He's really close, when he gets more fitness he will score more." Ten Hag discussed Ronaldo. "He's totally committed to this project, totally involved, he also has connections that are coming around him (on the pitch) + he is constructing connections so I'm happy with that."

Ten Hag's asked about England squad in addition to Sancho, and Rashford's situation: "It's not up to me, it's the manager of England, I cannot be in his seat, I don't want to do it. They are progressing, they are starting the season well, they will progress even more, I am convinced of that. Sancho in preparing the goal with Bruno he was in the center-forward position. We did some experiments this night, bringing Tyrell on the right + Luke on the left, that’s two good moves, we can be very able + we need that in the season."
