Manchester United fans fully support Jose Mourinho's change for Leicester match

Liverpool's trip to face three-times winners Leicester at King Power Stadium for their first match of the competition this year was one of four all-Premier League ties.

Leicester City, meanwhile, had a disappointing start to the season, after losing to Arsenal at Emirates 4-3 despite a good fight back. While he'll play no part in this match, it's still an a tough test this early in the season for Shakespeare's men. The Red Devils went goal insane in South Wales last week scoring three quick fire goals as they put the sword to Paul Clement's outfit.

However, just how well-oiled a machine Manchester United are will be known when they play Leicester, considering West Ham and Swansea are not exactly the scariest of opposition.

"He told me the night before", Mourinho revealed. He does it for Everton, he does it for his family, so I have no complaints.

First-half goals from Jack Cork and Robbie Brady gave Burnley a two-goal advantage at the break and the Clarets comfortably saw out the game.

With Ibrahimovic still months away from a return to first-team action, Mourinho will be hoping Romelu Lukaku, the man signed to replace the 28 goals scored by the Swede last season, can continue in his current form.

Officials and witnesses told the Associated Press that the death toll was 60 and that the majority of those killed were rebels. Sanaa is packed with armed men and armored vehicles, fueling fears of open clashes between Saleh's forces and the Houthis.

Huddersfield Town's 0-0 draw with Southampton meant United went two points clear at the summit, although West Bromwich Albion will join them on nine points if they beat Stoke City today.

Incredibly, it breaks the record held by rivals Manchester City, who have named ever-so-slightly increasingly expensive XIs in their first three matches of the new season. "It's not going to be easy".

The Red Devils are looking to maintain their winning start to the new campaign and Jose Mourinho has duly named a full strength team for the occasion, with Anthony Martial - so impressive off the bench - given a chance to shine from the start.

"I don't see any reason why he can't", said Shakespeare. "When you are blessed with talent, you have to fulfil and explore it". I want more from him because he has all the qualities for that. "With his talent, this season [will be] even better". "Again better", said Mourinho. He marshaled the line in front of him superbly well, knew when to come out of his box to block out potential counter attacks, and was probably the only reason his side weren't trailing at half-time. But we spent a lot of time together, learning each other. "To let Rashford have that much time and space is very disappointing for us".

Jose Mourinho has made one change for the visit of Leicester City.

"I am really happy". "Because [it] shows two things for me - it shows me the dimension of the player and the dimension of the club". While it did embolden Leicester enough for Riyad Mahrez to fire a couple of rare shots on goal, the United manager had a point. He doesn't do that. "But I have no idea at all".
