Mourinho hails 'improved' United after Leicester win

United has its swagger back.

Manchester United completed a 2-0 win over Leicester thanks to Marouane Fellaini diverting in a Jesse Lingard shot. "I thought he was very solid against one of the best centre-forwards in the league in Lukaku". Were they unsafe against us? No. Why?

United's disappointing 6th place finish last season owed much to their frequent inability to convert draws into victories, particularly in home games against so-called weaker opposition.

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

They should have gone ahead, however, in the 52nd minute when Leicester defender Danny Simpson was ruled to have handled in the area but Lukaku's penalty was superbly saved by Schmeichel, whose father Peter won five league titles for United.

"When you miss a penalty with half an hour to go", Mourinho said, "usually there is a little collapse or at least a gray period in the game".

The Armenia global made his third and fourth assist of the season in Manchester United's 4-0 victory over Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium last weekend. "He's the kind of player where we need to have him always in our hands, with a lot of care from the medical department".

'I'm very happy I could assist twice but I enjoyed more of the teamwork than what I have done myself because football is a team sport, ' Mkhitaryan told MUTV.

Mkhitaryan then made way for Fellaini, who was on target in the 82nd with a goal all the substitutes played a part in.

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

"Zlatan is going to arrive to a team that, I don't say is the end product, but he is going to arrive mid-season with the team playing in a certain way and with players having what I call the functional links in the dynamic of the team". All the players are motivated.

19th min CHANCE - Cerebral stuff from United as Lukaku played the ball out wide for Anthony Martial who worked space to float a cross towards the far post and arriving late Pogba stretched to volley but the ball drifted just wide when he should have scored.
