Manchester United squashed all the negativity surrounding their recent three game losing streak by exploding for four goals in the first half and comfortably disposing of Leicester City, 4-1.
There was one significant change for the Red Devils today and it has to be said it was the key to their success. Wayne Rooney was dropped for this one and Juan Mata was given a rare chance in the #10 role and he absolutely thrived in it, as United had a free-flowing attack we haven't seen for some time. They torched the Foxes with three goals from set pieces, the first of which came when Chris Smalling headed home a Daley Blind corner. Jesse Lingard then found Mata who struck with his left foot to make it 2-0. The rout was on from there. Another Blind corner was played short to Mata and he picked out Marcus Rashford who scored from point blank range. Then a final goal came whe Paul Pogba opened his account, heading home yet another Blind corner. You have to think Jose Mourinho will keep this new-look attack intact for United's next match against a poor Stoke City defense. Sep 24 - 9:36 AM
