Manchester United v Leicester City

Adjust Comment Print

A maximum nine points from their first three games and an impressive goal differential will have everyone in the right mood around Old Trafford.

The pursuit of ultimate glory never ends at Old Trafford.

Luke Shaw (ankle) and Ashley Young (hamstring) are both closing in on full fitness after playing for an hour in United's U23 clash with Swansea on Monday, while Marcos Rojo returned to training on Tuesday after several months out with a serious knee problem.

Leicester City: Schmeichel; Simpson, Morgan (c), Maguire, Fuchs; Mahrez, Ndidi, James, Albrighton (Gray 60); Okazaki (King 60), Vardy (Slimani 75). This happened after he had already helped United win the Community Shield, EFL Cup and Europa League last season, in an interview with ESPN he said that winning the Premier League title is a key factor in his decision to reject offers to move to another club.

Mourinho refused to take credit for the substitutions that changed the game, preferring to deflect the spotlight onto his players.

With club-record signing Paul Pogba and summer signings Romelu Lukaku, who cost an initial £75m, and Nemanja Matic, who cost £40m, also picked, it takes the total value of the lineup past the £400m mark.

Leicester City meanwhile enter the match coming off a pair of wins, 2-0 over Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League and 4-1 at Sheffield United in the EFL Cup during the week.

The opening minutes saw United lay siege to the Leicester goal but it was the Foxes who reached the quarter-of-an-hour mark having enjoyed the better of possession.

Zlatan will also be sporting a jersey of the great United player and former captain Wayne Rooney who scored recently playing for his new team Everton in a match against Manchester City. While he'll play no part in this match, it's still an a tough test this early in the season for Shakespeare's men.

Manchester City had earlier leaped to the top of the EPL table after Raheem Sterling grabbed a victor, seven minutes into stoppage time, against AFC Bournemouth. But we spent a lot of time together, learning each other.

"We had a very good pre-season". They would batter teams that set up at Old Trafford to snatch a draw only to come away shaking their heads, and it cost them a place in the top four. We created enough chances to score today and I think we are the deserved winners.

"The players are good and motivated".

Martial has made two second half substitute appearances in the Premier League this season and he has scored in each of those two games off the bench. It will be a massive challenge but we look forward to that challenge.
