  • 2. Roberto Firmino v Arsenal on Sunday

Man United will look to make it three straight wins at the start of the new Premier League campaign when they host Leicester City on Saturday night. The surprise? It was Rashford who was benched, not Juan Mata.

Either way, this was Martial's chance to make his point as to why he should be trusted to start week-in, week-out, but he simply didn't take it.

Fellaini's goal was the sixth goal out of Manchester United's 10 so far this season that has come after the 80th minute.

Now obviously it would be ridiculous to suggest the title race is over and done with after just two games, but already you can see there's a huge change in mentality at the club - both on and off the pitch. He looked more hungry, and it instantly brought more excitement and desire to United's game. I want more from him because he has all the qualities for that.

"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". In the last five matches of Manchester United in English Premier League, UEFA Super Cup, and friendly matches, they have won four matches and lost one match.

United had dominated throughout so the goal wasn't against the run of play. However, he will still be largely judged by his poor penalty early in the second half, which was swatted aside by Kasper Schmeichel, who was having a game for the ages until conceding Rashford's soft opener.

Rafael Benitez's Newcastle United got off the mark at the third attempt after goals from new signing Joselu, Ciaran Clark and Aleksandar Mitrovic secured a 3-0 home win over West Ham, who remain without a point. Rashford sent the ball down the left flank to Jesse Lingard, who had replaced Anthony Martial, and his shot was turned in by Fellaini from close range. It's fair to say that the decision could have gone either way.

"Leicester's game against Arsenal ended with a defeat but could have ended with a victory", Mourinho said on Friday during his pre-match press conference. None of that attacking intent was displayed here whatsoever.

There was no goal, no desire, and they were lucky to have held on for so long without conceding. For all their sluggishness up front, Leicester were remarkably astute at the back. This gave the squad time to gel and prepare for the new season.

Craig Shakespeare, meanwhile, was disappointed that his players would leave Old Trafford with nothing to show for their efforts after a dogged display.

"Maybe someone can explain to me because I would like to know", he told Sky Sports of the Sterling sending-off.

FW Romelu Lukaku, 7 - Irony that he had perhaps his best-rounded game so far for United, holding the ball up very well and moving play on quickly as well as taking up some fine positions.
