Mourinho refuses to take credit for United's super subs

Premier League: Manchester United aim for third win as they face Leicester City

In the last five matches of Leicester City in English Carabao Cup, English Premier League, and Friendly matches, they have won three matches and lost two matches.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho saw all three of his substitutes contribute to the goals that earned a 2-0 win over Leicester City on Saturday but was quick to dismiss praise of his tactical move.

Mourinho refused to take credit for the substitutions that changed the game, preferring to deflect the spotlight onto his players. The blue wall was very well organised and I always give credit for that. "If I have to choose a word to describe my team, I would have to say solid".

Having eased past Bundesliga side Hoffenheim in the play-off round, Liverpool are back where they belong and while our draw might seem like an easy path to the Round of 16, our penchant to play down to our opposition could very well be our undoing - the old mantra of "no easy games" certainly applies here.

Rashford has played well in United's opening games, but many feel Martial merits a start on the back of his goalscoring displays from the bench. At 35-years-old, the Swede had a major impact on the morale of the squad by inspiring some of the younger players such as Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford with his unique brand of humour and mischief. Last week, Alexandre Lacazette fell victim to a awful refereeing decision that ultimately cost Arsenal the match as they went down to a 1-0 defeat against United's next opponents.

Speaking on BT Sport immediately after the game, Ferdinand said: "Two substitutes came off the bench to make a difference".


"But I am happy if I am not going to have that and I don't think I am going to have that. So I think it will look like last year but this year the Red Devils will be on top". This is a tough opening three games for the Foxes, who are certainly hoping for better luck than they had at Emirates Stadium where they squandered a 3-1 lead over Arsenal.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan: "A win is a win, it doesn't matter if you win 4-0 or 2-0".

"It's vitally important you bring the right characters in. To let Rashford have that much time and space is very disappointing for us".

United had dominated throughout so the goal wasn't against the run of play. The Portuguese tactician has already got his team playing some good attacking football mixed with enormous energy and pace, hence; as the new season goes on, United fans can surely dream again.

The tricky Algerian twisted and turned past United players but came closest when Demarai Gray slipped him in for a shot on goal, however, the pass was slightly too heavy, forcing the Mahrez wider than he would have wanted to be. His final piece of touchline theatre, within moments of Fellaini's goal, was to cup his ears and shrug his shoulders at the supporters in the stand behind him.
