JADON SANCHO admits he’s had to work harder and believe in himself more to turn his Manchester United fortunes around.
The £73million England winger is ‘delighted’ to finally match his Borussia Dortmund form midway through his first season at Old Trafford.

The summer buy, 21, is now a key man under interim boss Ralf Rangnick, with much-improved stats too.
And asked how he has become an electrifying regular, he told United’s website: “I guess that’s because I’ve been working a lot harder and believing in myself a lot more and just trying to make things happen.
“I’m just happy that my team-mates are believing in me and giving me support, especially when I go one-v-one.
“And hearing the fans when they cheer me on and are telling me to get at my opponent… I’m delighted with my performances.”
The 23-cap star claims United are powerful enough to win the Champions League this season.
But ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash at home to second-bottom Watford, Sancho revealed his priority is just to hold onto a top-four spot.
Rangnick has ruled out catching the top three sides, Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea.
And questioned on his targets, Sancho said: “Definitely getting a Champions League spot for next season, 100 per cent we need that.”

But the ex-Watford schoolboy added: “I feel like we have a strong enough squad to win the Champions League, I really believe that.
“But we all have to work for each other and for us to even get close to the final we have to go game-by-game.
“It’s going to be a tough challenge, but I feel like with the players we have and the experience we have then it’s definitely doable.”
