4 Things We Learned From Manchester United’s Victory Over Leicester

Manchester United got back to winning ways in the Premier league with an emphatic 4-1 win over last season’s league champions, Leicester City.

It will make easy reading for United fans the world over after some dissident had been reported at the Old Trafford dressing room over Jose Mourinho’s Methods.

Rooney’s Place Is On The Bench

Wayne Rooney might very well retire as a Manchester United legend but it is time to face the harsh truth that his time at the club should be spent on the bench.

He has looked subpar in every match he’s started this season and Mourinho finally grew the balls to keep him on the bench for their encounter against Leicester

Leicester Need To Sort Out Their Defense

It is hard to explain or understand how Leicester went from conceding 36 goals last season to conceding 8 in their last two premier league games. Wes Morgan and Huth might have been top class last season but having conceded from three corners on Saturday, it really is time to reconsider their defensive options.

Rashford Has The Quality

Marcus Rashford might be young but there’s no gainsaying his star quality. He put in yet another respectable shift on Saturday and perhaps should have buried Leicester beyond the four they scored. At this point, there’s no real reason why he shouldn’t be starting every game.

No Fairytale for Leicester

Leicester City won the league last season in what can only be described as a fairytale of monumental proportions but it sure looks like there’ll be no repeat of the fairytale.

With three defeats already this season, it really is hard to see the Foxes get into the top four. They might as well just focus on the UEFA Champions League!
