3⃣ games 3⃣ wins 9⃣ points 0⃣ conceded No. 1⃣ in the @PremierLeague Good times ? pic.twitter.com/Fsb6DEfTvv — Manchester United (@ManUtd) August 26, 2017Craig Shakespeare's side had to work hard to withstand that early pressure, with Morgan at full stretch in central defence alongside new England squad member Harry Maguire. United, though, continued to press, with Juan Mata unlucky to have a goal ruled out for a marginal offside in the 18th minute. Paul Pogba's cross was cleared unconvincingly by Maguire and Lukaku turned on the edge of the area to hit a shot that Mata followed up to sweep in after Schmeichel had parried.
Assistant referee Constantine Hatzidakis raised his flag, but Mata looked to have been level with the Leicester back line as Lukaku let fly. Fired by that perceived injustice, United went close twice in quick succession. First Pogba half-volleyed Martial's outswinging cross just wide at the far post and then Schmeichel dived athletically to his right to paw away a bending Mata shot.
Great start to the season @ManUtd maximum points,no goals conceded + 6 different scorers. Important not to be reliant on 1 player for goalsAugust 26, 2017
Completely different Manchester United side to that of last year's. Such confidence when going forward. Look rock solid in defence. — Liam Canning (@LiamPaulCanning) August 26, 2017Shinji Okazaki had a half-chance for Leicester at the other end, with David de Gea gathering his low shot from Jamie Vardy's knock-down. But United continued to look the more dangerous side, with Pogba hitting a fierce 30-yard shot that flew just wide. Schmeichel was alert to gather Martial's snapshot from 20 yards, before beating away a Pogba effort and then watching another drive from the France midfielder whizz by his right-hand post.
Here's how Manchester United will line up against Leicester City. pic.twitter.com/a8bWt7EOas — Goal UK (@GoalUK) August 26, 2017Mahrez, repeatedly linked with a move away from Leicester, began to carry more of a threat, scuffing one shot wide and then breaking onto a pass by substitute Demarai Gray to deliver a dangerous cross. 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. Victory was secured in the 82nd minute as Fellaini diverted in fellow substitute Lingard's cross, despite replays suggesting he had been offside.
The visitor almost pulled one back in stoppage time, but De Gea reacted well to turn away Andy King's close-range shot. Lukaku then blazed over at the other end. RESULT Man Utd 2 (Rashford 70, Fellaini 82) 0 Leicester
3 - Kasper Schmeichel has saved three of the last five penalties he has faced in all competitions for Leicester City. Acrobatic.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) August 26, 2017
