Manchester United subs sink Leicester


Jose Mourinho says he is delighted with the quality of football his Manchester United side have been playing, after the Red Devils polished off Leicester City 2-0 at Old Trafford on Saturday. Jose Mourinho's men look like one of the top title contenders, and have dazzled everyone with their recent play.

Rafael Benitez's Newcastle United got off the mark at the third attempt after goals from new signing Joselu, Ciaran Clark and Aleksandar Mitrovic secured a 3-0 home win over West Ham, who remain without a point.

Earlier, Raheem Sterling scored a dramatic 97th-minute victor to earn Manchester City a 2-1 victory at Bournemouth, but was then sent off after receiving a second yellow card for over-celebrating.

"That's why need them (the substitutes), because they can change the game", United midfielder Paul Pogba said.

The 23-year-old arrived at Old Trafford in a deal which could rise to nearly £40m earlier in the transfer window, but he is yet to make his Premier League debut for the club and has been left out of the squad for two of their three league fixtures so far. And it is worth mentioning that the team probably would not have won the match had not been for the subs.




Meanwhile, the foxes were finding it hard to break United's defensive line and they failed to convert some good chances which came their way. Commencement of the new season has seemingly become a watershed moment for Blind, who started all of the first three games on the left side of the defence.

The Frenchman didn't score, but the man who replaced him on 74 minutes, Fellaini, did. If Martial had the upper hand after two games, Rashford made a point of his own with his first goal of the season.

United took the lead through Marcus Rashford in the second-half.

Last season, United drew 10 games at Old Trafford, often being frustrated by the kind of deep-lying defence that Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare employed but they are now a different proposition.

Manchester United have played three BPL matches so far before the worldwide break.
