Manchester United boss hails improvement of the team following Leicester City win

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho have moved up a notch after they secured a 2-0 win over Leicester City in Saturday’s late kick-off at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils looked frustrated for much of the game before substitutes Marcus Rashford and Marcus Fellaini got on the scoresheet.

The Red Devils had the vast share of possession during the first half of the encounter while having a Juan Mata goal chalked off for being offside. This was followed by further frustration in the second period as a poorly take penalty from Romelu Lukaku was saved by Kasper Schmeichel, who looked in sublime form on the day.

Eventually, United pulled out their options from the bench with Rashford scoring within five minutes of his entry via a corner whilst Marouane Fellaini used his body to good effect to score the second goal following a brilliant assist from another substitute Jesse Lingard.

Following the game, Mourinho said: “There is a difference in the quality of our football. The team is playing very well – they are very confident and are playing great football. I like my team very much. Three matches and nine point is nothing new for us, because last season it was three matches and nine points.”

Meanwhile, there had been talk of Zlatan Ibrahimovic returning to the field as early as October where he could potentially face Tottenham Hotspur. However, the Special One has dismissed those suggestions by revealing that the Swede will only be available in January which is like a winter signing for the club, he added: “He will be back in January. When the market is open and people are spending money we won’t. But we get a player who was fundamental for us last season. He comes to give us extra quality in the second half of the season.”

Manchester United go into the international break with a 100 percent record, and their next fixture is against Stoke City on September 9.
