Substitutes Marcus Rashford and Marouane Fellaini scored to care for Manchester United’s 100% start and spare Romelu Lukaku’s blushes against Leicester.
Jose Mourinho’s men made it three wins from three at the beginning of the brand new most desirable League campaign as second-half of replacements Rashford and Fellaini made intention-scoring contributions shortly after coming on in a 2-zero success.
United had cruised to 4-0 wins over both West Ham and Swansea in their opening two contests, but the champions of two seasons ago had been more stubborn opponents and their goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel saved a Lukaku penalty eight minutes after the interval.
then again, with Mourinho having praised “the wonderful mavens who will not be taking part in in the mean time” in his programme notes, it was two of people who didn’t start that were the heroes on this social gathering.
United’s rapid start to the new prime-flight marketing campaign would have impressed considered one of their most famous fans, Usain Bolt, who was in attendance at old Trafford.
The not too long ago retired Jamaican dash king, a 3-time Olympic champion across both 100 and 200 metres, may have reached the Riyad Mahrez long free-kick that Jamie Vardy nearly amassed between Phil Jones and David De Gea in the twelfth minute.
United’s Achilles heel final 12 months was their incapability to beat teams at house, the place they drew on 10 occasions in the league, and there have been early indicators that this will be some other of those evenings.
