Rashford, Fellaini Score as Man United Beat Leicester

Rashford, Fellaini Score as Man United Beat Leicester”

In terms of head-to-head, Manchester United leads with 14 wins against two of Leicester City, with six matches being drawn.

There is a pattern to Jose Mourinho's substitutions. I would say he is one of the most risky players in the Premier League.

Mourinho, in the meantime, is expected to name an unchanged side in his chase of a third consecutive triumph.

Antonio Valencia will keep his place on the right while Eric Bailly and Phil Jones appear to be the first-choice centre-back pairing while Victor Lindelof adjusts to life in England.

United needed a Marcus Rashford goal from the bench to settle the nerves against the Foxes.

"The difference is the quality of our football", Mourinho said. The "blue wall" was very well organised and I always give credit for that. "We are comfortable on the ball and unsafe on the counter- attack", he added. Manchester United have started the season off with a bang, winning each match 4-0, and they've just gotten stronger with the announcement of Zlatan Ibrahimovic signing on to play one more year.

What Mourinho sees is a team more comfortable in possession and threatening when launching counterattacks.

That came after Kasper Schmeichel had produced an inspired performance, saving Romelu Lukaku's second-half penalty as part of a fine individual display, with Leicester defending doggedly to remain in the game until the closing stages.

Rashford, dropped to the bench to make way for Anthony Martial, turned in Henrikh Mkhitaryan's corner in the 70th minute, less than three minutes after coming on.

But 20 minutes from the end, Rashford diverted in Mkhitaryan's right-wing corner on the volley, with Schmeichel only able to push it into the roof of the net.

Then Fellaini knocked one in with his knee in the 82nd minute following good work from Jesse Lingard on the left wing.

Heading into the worldwide break, United has collected a maximum nine points without conceding.

"If I have to choose a word to describe my team, I would have to say "solid". All the players are motivated. Back in 2005-06, the Blues stayed at the summit for 257 out of 268 days (the next best was, remarkably, Charlton Athletic for seven), while they managed 193 out of 275 days at the top of the pile the season before (Arsenal came closest with 81).

And that depth of resources in reserve on the bench sets United apart from some title rivals.

Leicester City: The Foxes could go ahead with a similar lineup which they played for their last league match against Brighton. "We tried, our finishing was not good, but we are there". "If you can't celebrate with the fans maybe we should play without fans".
