Manchester United v Leicester City - Premier League
Maraoune Fellaini came off the bench to score United's second goal against Leicester City

As we head into the International break, we reflect on the past weekend of Premier League action saw that 20 goals scored, including four at Anfield in Arsenal's demolition. This break has come in time for the likes of Arsenal, West Ham United and Crystal Palace as all three of them would seek to regroup and bounce back after their dismal start to the new campaign. Pressure is already mounting on Slaven Bilic of West Ham in particular as the Hammers have already conceded 10 goals in three games.

Below are the top 5 talking points from the weekend.

#1 The Red Devils show their killer instinct

Jose Mourinho's Manchester United were largely kept at bay by a well organized Leicester City defence led by their captain Wes Morgan and the impressive Harry Maguire who has just won his first call up to the England National team. The Red Devils performance seemed to have everything but the finishing touch, reminiscent of a few similar outings last season, particularly at Old Trafford and yet the outcome was so different.

Manchester United had a terrible home record last season wherein they won only 8 of their home games in the league and 10 matches ended in a stalemate. However, the outlook of this United side is quite different as has been evident in their rampant wins so far. United have already scored 10 goals in three games, half the number of games as compared to last season.

United breached the 10 goal mark in their 6th League game last season and coincidentally, against Leicester City.
