Manchester United kept alive their 100% start to the new Premier League season after a hard-fought win against Leicester at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils dominated the game but struggled to find a way past the Leicester backline, with Harry Maguire and Kasper Schmeichel both superb for the Foxes.
United should have gone ahead after the break, only for Romelu Lukaku to see his penalty saved by Schmeichel.
Leicester started to push forward in search of an equaliser, but it would be the Red Devils who would score again, with another sub, Marouane Fellaini, diverting Jesse Lingard’s shot into the Leciester goal. Although there was a strong hint of offside about the goal.
That Fellaini effort would kill off the game and secure yet another three points for Jose Mourinho’s side, who now have nine points from their first three games, with 10 goals scored and none conceded.
While they will face tougher opponents this season, the Mancunian giants are looking like credible title contenders already.
As for Craig Shakespeare, he can be proud of a decent defensive display from his charges, although the lack of a cutting edge will have disappointed the Leicester boss.
