Manchester United faced Leicester City at Old Trafford on Saturday as the Reds looked to make it three Premier League wins out of three before the international break.
Manchester United went into the game in great form, having won both of their opening two Premier League games of the season 4-0. Comfortable wins over West Ham United and Swansea City saw the Reds top of the table ahead of game week three in the Premier League.
Leicester City, after letting a lead slip at The Emirates on the opening night, have found some form over the past week. The Foxes beat Brighton at the King Power Stadium last weekend before enjoying a 4-1 away win at Sheffield United in the Carabao Cup in midweek.
In the week that Manchester United announced that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has signed a new one-year deal at the club, it was another striker, in Romelu Lukaku that was key to Manchester United’s chances at Old Trafford. Lukaku scored twice on the opening weekend against West Ham and added another away at Swansea last week.
While Paul Pogba, having picked up the UEFA Europa League Player of the Season award in Monaco this week, was looking to maintain his great start the season. The French international midfielder scored against both West Ham and Swansea, like Lukaku, while he also set up Eric Bailly’s goal in South Wales.
