Thierry Henry insists Sancho has one major flaw in his game since Man Utd move

Thierry Henry appeared unmoved by Jadon Sancho’s performance during Manchester United’s convincing 3-1 victory over Burnley.

Sancho played a part as United put three past the Clarets, his driven effort inside the box for his side’s second being helped in by Ben Mee’s outstretched leg.

But Arsenal legend Henry, who was on pundit duty for Amazon Prime, said that the attacker looks as though he’s playing “within himself.”

The 44-year-old explained after the northwest encounter at Old Trafford: “Those are the types of players you want to watch but he is playing within himself.

"When you are in a one-on-one, you should take a player on. But it was Luke Shaw who was forcing him to take on those one-on-ones."

"What happened to beating your man on the outside? They often want to go too much inside. Just beat your man on the outside and be lethal."

Sancho found himself sidelined when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was in the United dugout, despite the club signing the England international for £73milllion from Borussia Dortmund during the Norwegian’s tenure.

Since Ralf Rangnick took over earlier this month, the 21-year-old has found himself with more game-time – and he’s slowly starting to prove his worth in United colours.

Indeed, his contribution against Burnley allowed his side to pick up a vital three points in their quest for a top-four spot.

Scott McTominay and Cristiano Ronaldo also got on the score-sheet, with Aaron Lennon’s neat finish giving the visitors what was a consolation in the end.

Ralf Rangnick spoke after the game, praising the efforts of his team following a dismal 1-1 draw with Newcastle before the Christmas break.

"It was important today to raise the energy level," the German said post-game. "The whole team performance was a lot better. I was pleased with the performances of our wingers – Jadon did well.

"Mason [Greenwood], Eddie [Edinson Cavani] and Cristiano [Ronaldo], the work effort was amazing."
