  • FILE Manchester United players celebrate a goal during a match against Swansea on 19 August 2017

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has admitted that he is wary of facing Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday.

Mourinho's men saw out the closing minutes, earning a 2-0 win and ensuring that they maintained their 100% winning start.

Jose Mourinho's men now sit pretty at the top of the Premier League table after successive 4-0 victories.

James battled his way back to form and fitness with the help of a highly successful loan spell with Barnsley last season.

King nearly pulled a goal back in stoppage-time after getting on the end of Gray's cross, but De Gea was alert to deny him at point-blank range as United went into the global break on a high.

'I knew we'd scored because it was the first time I'd really heard the crowd. "We are comfortable on the ball and risky on the counter- attack", he added. Yes, I watched the match three times.

Scopus Asset Management Lp decreased Tjx Cos Inc New (NYSE:TJX) stake by 687,708 shares to 812,292 valued at $61.03M in 2016Q4. ULTA grew its physical footprint to include hundreds of stores, and the stock drew plenty of bullish commentary from analysts.

What Mourinho sees is a team more comfortable in possession and threatening when launching counterattacks.

The frustration continued for the home side at the start of the second half when Lukaku missed from the spot after referee Michael Oliver pointed to the spot when Danny Simpson handled Martial's cross.

Champions Chelsea play Everton on Sunday when Liverpool host Arsenal, last season's runners-up Tottenham Hotspur face Burnley and West Bromwich Albion take on Stoke City.

Mourinho then turned to Rashford in the 67th minute and three minutes later he produced the opener. "I think the right way is not even to think about it. Let him do his work, step by step and come back when he is ready".

Manchester United is still without Ashley Young and Luke Shaw, both of whom are approaching full fitness. The reason the midfielder's goal was given though, was because the ball had struck Wes Morgan, who apparently made a deliberate attempt to play the ball while trying to block Jesse Lingard's shot.

Heading into the worldwide break, United has collected a maximum nine points without conceding.

Manchester United's ideal start to the 2017-18 Premier League season continued on Saturday, as the Red Devils beat Leicester City 2-0 at Old Trafford. "If I had to choose a word to describe my team it would be solid". "All the players are motivated". They would batter teams that set up at Old Trafford to snatch a draw only to come away shaking their heads, and it cost them a place in the top four.

"The difference is the quality of our football, we're playing better today and if we hadn't won this match I wouldn't have anyone to blame", Mourinho said.

"He couldn't have asked for anything more from his team from the first three games".

There is no question Leicester City improved down the stretch last season following the arrival of Craig Shakespeare to the bench. By far Leicester's best player on the day.

"We knew they'd have their moments and they managed to capitalise on those big moments".
