Ander Herrera hopes Manchester United have put a "very bad" week behind them and can get on another winning run.
United's winning start to the season came to an abrupt halt after the international break as the home defeat to rivals Manchester City was compounded by losses at Feyenoord and Watford.
United avoided the ignominy of a fourth straight defeat and exiting the EFL Cup to lower-league opposition on Wednesday, with Michael Carrick, Herrera and Marcus Rashford securing a 3-1 return to winning ways at Northampton.
A mouth-watering clash with Pep Guardiola's City now awaits in the fourth round, but Herrera is more interested in the positive impact Wednesday's win can have for reigning champions Leicester's visit at the weekend.
"When you play these kind of games, people don't realise how difficult it is," the Spanish midfielder said of facing Northampton.
"Now we are going to think about keep winning games. We want to think it was a very bad week and now we can face Leicester in a different way, more positive.
"Hopefully we can win and we can keep being in the high (parts) of the table."
