Manchester United Working With Jadon Sancho At Wing-back In Training

He has only played a full 90 minutes once - the 1-0 League Cup home defeat to West Ham.

There are several mitigating factors for his early struggles, reports the Athletic.

And while his attacking contributions have been non-existent, he has shown impressive defensive diligence when he has featured.

The England international replaced Eric Bailly at half-time of United's 2-0 home defeat to Sancho's old club Manchester City on Saturday.

And he showed flashes of defensive intelligence to keep the scoreline at just 2-0.

As a result of such displays, United coaches have reportedly used him as a right wing-back in training in preparation for future use of the 3-4-1-2 system manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer used against City.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been criticised for his lack of attacking prowess from the right side of defence.

And there is a feeling Sancho could prove an important weapon instead of the former Crystal Palace man if United are required to adopt a defensive approach in future.
