PEEP! PEEP! PEEP! MANCHESTER UNITED 2-0 LEICESTER CITY

United exhibited outstanding patience and perseverance to keep at it, and finally broke a doughty Leicester City down. Once again, Mourinho's substitutions made all the difference; this time it was Rashford and Fellaini...

Three games played. Ten Goals scored. None Conceded - United are in fine fettle, but the trick will be to keep the momentum up after coming back from the international break

That's it from me, Anirudh Menon signing out... 

Toodle-ooo
...
95' United play the corner short, and the ref's seen enough
...
94' OH HO HO! LUKAKU! He's desperate for a goal today, and he runs onto a lovely little Pogba ball before smashing a ball at the net that Morgan deflects just above the bar. 
...
93' SAVE! Superb football from Leicester sees Gray whip a ball into the feet of King - who has the freedom of Old Trafford to steer a ball in - but De Gea pulls of one of those brilliant saves with his leg
...
92' The players ping the ball about in the academic way - Old Trafford urges their team on and Pogba obliges by powering through the centre of the park, but his ball into Lukaku is a hopeful one. 
...
91' FOUR MINUTES ADDED ON!
...
90' De Gea makes a hash of it, but the defence in front of him is on their toes and they hack it clear
...
89' Pogba tries a clever routine, but Fuchs reads it well and heads out ahead of Lukaku..., Leicester counter through Gray, and it's a corner for the Foxes.
...
88' OOOO Interesting ball into the box from Fuchs after Gray tees him up, but the excellent Jones smashes his header clear. Rashford then slips past Simpson with absurd ease... as he races into the box, Matty James slides into him and that's a yellow. 
...
87' The corner, though, suffers from a distinct lack of swagger - in that, it was utter rubbish. United recover the ball soon enough though and they go pass-pass-pass
...
86' Corner for United... the Red Devils are turning on the swagger now - just as they did in their opening two games. 
...
84' Matic gallops into the box on those lanky legs of his as Blind slips him in - but he's seen off by Harry Maguire, who's had rather good game truth be told. 
...
UFF! Again, space at the back as Leicester go in search of an equaliser - Lingard slips in behind the blue wall before smashing a cross/shot that ricochets off Fellaini's thigh and into the goal. 

So, not a boot. But no matter, the big Belgian has his name on the score sheet. 
...
82' GOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! FELLAINI! WITH HIS BOOT!
...
80' OOOOOO Valencia slips in an innocuous little ball into the box, and both Morgan and Schmeichel have to have their wits about them to prevent Rashford from stealing in onto the ball.
...
79'  Mahrez delivers a freekick into the United third, and Bailly and Lingard scramble it clear... but it's only as far as Demarai Gray - who runs off Fellaini and attempts a shot at goal before shooting wildly astray
...
77' A similarly excellent header from Jones sees of Islam Slimani as the Algerian tried to ghost in behind and latch onto a Ndidi cross. 
...
77' Rashford tries to find Lukaku with an early whipped cross, but Maguire does superbly to read the ball and head it away from danger
...
76' Anthony Martial is taken off to a standing ovation and a rousing rendition of "50 mill, down the drain... Tony Martial, scores again" and local boy Jesse Lingard is brought on. Strangely, in turn, Islam Slimani gets thrown on for Jamie Vardy by Craig Shakespeare
...
75' OH LUKAKU! OH LUKAKU! The big Belgian has Wes Morgan backpedalling furiously as he runs straight at him, but from the edge of the box he lashes a wild shot all the way back to Goodison Park
...
74' Substitution for United as Marouane Fellaini is brought on for added steel in the place of a Henrik Mkhitaryan who tried hard, but wasn't too effective today
...
72; Demarai Gray tries to replicate his wonder goal from last season - against this very opposition - but scuffs it into the ground and the ball lops on harmlessly into the hands of David De Gea. 
...
71' Leicester, though, have looked better in attack in the past ten minutes or so - and they stream forward. This, though, leaves them vulnerable on the counter and Rashford is prevented from slipping into the box by a superb Ndidi challenge. 
...
It had to be him, didn't it? He stays still as everyone mills about in the box - and the ball falls at his feet... in space and eight odd yards out, the young man makes no mistake as he smashes it beyond a despairing Schmeichel dive
...
70' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! RASHFOOOOORD!
